The government has turned this into a national televison show for profit. Death sentenced prisoners are offered to be executed right away or to be sent to The Prison Game. So either they choose to die or get a chance to survive in a tough place where others fight for their lives. Prisoners have to defend themselves against each other but from time to time they have to stand together against enemies sent from outside as part of the show.
You can team up with other players. This way you can share your resources, safehouses and survive together.If you would like to play with your friends, you can create a team “Gang” and you can share almost everything you got. But if you are a lone survivor, want to be the king of the hill, then you may play on your own. Its totally up to you.
Every character in the game has a different past. They are sentenced to death because of their choices in life. Depending on their early life experiences, their pasts will have positive and negative effects in the game. Each characters abilities and skills will differ from other. Some of them are skilled with guns, some others are in picking locks and some will be highly efficient on creating bombs with couple of materials.
There will be special events that will take place in the city, some of them will be enemies like a small group of a private army and some will be deadly traps. In the occurence of events, the priosoners will get a chance to have valuable items. Every event will be announced via city speakers and alarms. According to the announce and alarm type it will be possible to understand the level of the threat.There are 4 types of events that we have been maturing on so far.
New event wont start, until a previous event completed or ended.
By the announcement of this event, heavily armored and geared private army enters the city. They enter the prison through different doors and take position on specific locations. They are hard to beat, strong and cruel. If you take down them you can have the equipments and the rewards really worth for your efforts.
Hunger, crazy and feral dogs will be sent to the prison with this event. Each one of them are kept hunger for days and drugged to became rabid. They will be sent through different doors to random locations. If you get bitten by one of them, painful and slow death will be waiting for you if not healed soon.
