As Max begins his procedural dissection of the game, he begins to realize this new game is not like any other. As Max completes new tasks, events in the real world begin to mirror them. Soon, Max uncovers a deep-rooted conspiracy from within the walls of Sentinel, which leads him to discover that the game’s protagonist, Orson Creed (Bennett, Arrow, The Hobbit), is a real man, in the real world. If Max can somehow join forces with Creed, together they may have a chance at unraveling this conspiracy before the tasks in the game escalate and overwhelm their city.
