Did you know:
Years have passed since the "Necrobe", a fungal agent capable of reanimating the dead, was released in several cities and small towns. Though Lazarix Pharmaceuticals is known to have studied the dangerous spores for their astounding curative properties, what isn't known is how or why the engineered result was allowed to spread.

As fungus-addled living corpses began flooding streets, other, more blood-thirsty beings emerged from the shadows. Vampires seem to be either seeking to destroy the zombie competition, or to simply feed on the remaining survivors.

Quarantine borders are strictly enforced by a private security company known as "Mantis", and no one knows for sure just what's going on in the outside world. Within these walls, many questions remain. Not least among them is this... What will become of you?
  As a Surviving Human, you will face throngs of the undead. Using skills such as building barricades, hiding out and of course mastering combat, you just might make it. A sleu of weapons await you, from the customary Baseball Bat, Shotgun and Chainsaw to the occasional Frying Pan or Dead Fish.

  Your goal will not only be living to see another day, but also helping others through healing and even revival using a strange serum created by Lazarix Pharmaceuticals. Sure, your days may be numbered, but that doesn't mean you can't have a little fun.
  As a Zombie, you will feast upon both Humans and Vampires. Skills such as infecting your prey, hiding amongst corpses, and even using failed revivals to your advantage are in your ghoulish bag of tricks. Whenever a human dies by your hand, they will become a zombie. Hey… the more the merrier, right?

  Gang tactics are encouraged for zombie players, who can buy skills to recieve bonuses for attacking in groups and to (literally) sniff out others of your kind. The fungus that has reanimated you can even be strong enough to prevent others from reviving you.
  As a Vampire, you will feed upon Humans and attempt to destroy your Zombie competition. Your vile skills include shrugging off a percentage of all damage, unexpectegly attacking when others think you're deceased, and increasing your power along with your killing sprees. The blood of your enemies shall flow.

  Vampiric characters will find that feeding on the lifeblood of others can be quite refreshing… especially after a long day of sensing and searching out hidden players. Vampires are the born hunters of Serling's urban jungle.

Hell Rising is a massively multiplayer online game.
