About This Big Game (Chapter 2)
Today, a 9.5 magnitude earthquake registered in North Korea stirred full-out panic, inciting North Korean militia to unload the biological weaponry they’d been experimenting with. To ensure that the weapons would not unintentionally detonate on their own land in the quake, missiles containing all of the gathered biological materials were launched, pointed at high population areas all across the globe. Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania suffered most of the damage in North America, as a calculated warhead managed to level most of Washington DC. The remains of the capital gave birth to an entirely new threat when rumors of strange survivors began to surface, crawling from the wreckage and feasting on the bodies of the fallen.
The National Guard was dispatched to eliminate the threat, and though they fought valiantly, the zombies revealed their intelligence by obtaining and wielding their own firearms. The incapacitated humans proved to be much easier for the zombies to infect. The Army followed suit, also falling to the zombie hordes in battle, and then the Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps met similar fates. The remnants of the US military fled to secure bases and safe zones on the east and west coasts to regroup. Infected former military began to establish their own zombie Generals and power structures within the plagues masses, eventually emerging led by a main figurehead originating from the Marine Corps.
Within no time, Zombies have taken over. Human survivors have begun to rally at Hogback Mountain, the only known safe zone on the East coast that has remained free of the infection. In the wake of the tragedy, Hogback’s physicians have banded together to create the first-ever Antidote, a single use vaccine that is functional only within the first few hours of infection. Reports have spread, twisting the factual antidote into a mythical cure, and drawing the attention of zombies seeking to become human again. Hogback Mountain has now come under attack, and the zombies have stolen all of the Antidotes and infected the Hogback doctors, as revenge, upon learning that the rumors of a miracle cure were a lie. The infection is spreading through Hogback and the human survivors are quickly becoming outnumbered. Killing the zombies allows the humans to reclaim their stolen antidotes, but even that doesn’t seem to be enough to stop the ever-spreading infection. In a last-ditch effort, a radio S.O.S. is placed by the remaining humans before they are forced to abandon their campsite refuge and flee into the mountains.
During a routine check for survivors, an S.O.S. is picked up by the remaining US Military who dispatch immediately to the mountains of Hogback for a rescue mission. Unfortunately, the trees of Hogback are too dense and they must land their helicopter in the only spot available amidst the woodland foliage, leaving themselves open to attack as they scour the land for survivors and attempt a Left For Dead run to assist the humans in reaching the extraction point.
Without the ability to create additional Antidotes, the zombie plague continues to claim victims until there remains only one Last Man Standing…
Join the battle against the Zombie Invasion below.
The zombies are taking over Hogback! Groups of human Survivors band together against the small horde of Zombies until they are infected. If infected survivors are unable to reach a Nurse tent with a Medic Badge in time, they join the Zombies and resurrect at the Graveyard.
As the Zombie forces grow the dwindling group of Survivors must attempt a Left For Dead run to the extraction point, and protect their Stronghold.
Eventually, the Last One Standing will finally be over run. Once there are no humans left to contend with, the three Zombie Lords will battle it out for supremacy in the Zombie Rumble.
