    RESTRICTED
    AREA

    Im Jahre 2083 ist ein Grossteil der Erdoberfläche von den Wastelands bedeckt: Lebensfeindlichen, zerklüfteten Gebieten voller Ruinen und verfallener Bunker. In den wenigen noch besiedelbaren Gebieten haben sich gigantische Mega-Cities gebildet. Weltweit agierende Industrie-Konzerne haben die Macht übernommen. Der Konkurrenzkampf ist gnadenlos. Korruption und Gewalt gehören zur Tagesordnung. Für illegale Aufträge werden sogenannte Freelancer - von der Gesellschaft ausgestoßene Söldner - rekrutiert.

    Ausgerüstet mit kybernetischen Implantaten und genetisch modifizierten Organen, haben Sie Ihre physischen und mentalen Fähigkeiten weit über die Grenzen eines normalen Menschen hinaus entwickelt.

    Welchen Platz wirst Du in dieser neuen Zeit einnehmen?

    Features
    • Actiongeladenes Cyber-Punk Rollenspiel mit packender, nichtlinearer Storyline!
    • Innovatives Rollenspielsystem: Wähle Deinen Heldne aus vier völlig unterschiedlichen Charakteren und erlerne 75 einzigartige Fertigkeiten!

    STORY:
    Restricted Area catapults players into the year 2083 where, as a result of environmental pollution, most of the earth is covered by mutant inhabited wastelands and contaminated deserts. The global government is weak and mega-corporations have become a law unto themselves. Players begin the game by choosing one of four totally unique characters. Their choice determines how the story will play out. Though an RPG at its core, Restricted Area places an emphasis on action thus translating into faster gameplay for the player. In addition to a challenging, story-driven single-player campaign that has been likened to a futuristic Diablo II, Restricted Area also boasts a robust cooperative multiplayer feature that enables players to team up and engage enemies together.
