The plot of the horror title
Here are the narrative premises on which the game’s plot is based, provided directly by the distributor BANDAI NAMCO:
Hello, in the shadow of the Zagros Mountains a military unit has a fire fight with Iraqi forces. The result of this battle is a seismic shock that causes both sides to fall into the buried ruins of a Sumerian time. With all communications cut off, our protagonists are trapped in a terrifying underworld that they will have to explore in order to escape, unaware that something ancient and evil has awakened and found new prey to hunt.
In this terrible underground you will have to ask yourself who your real enemy is. The monsters hiding in the darkness or the other people trapped with you? Will you put rivalries aside to face a common enemy? Difficult decisions will have to be made… and the consequences could be deadly.
