In a dystopian world that combines a dark underworld and elements of the fantastic, the player will be required to infiltrate the gangs of Paradise City on behalf of a powerful government agency that, despite its influence, has been unable to introduce even a glimmer of law and order to this horribly corrupt city. In an intertwining chapter-driven story, the player takes turns controlling one of three gritty characters that, for their own reason, have “volunteered” to get to the bottom of the mystery behind the controlling crime syndicate’s power.
The player's characters will become more powerful as they claw their way up the echelons of the underworld and as their individual stories begin to overlap. As the player’s influence on the city grows, the businesses, the payoffs and the number of confrontations with rival gangs will enable the player to gain experience and become powerful enough to take control of the city piece by piece. After becoming a underworld force to be reckoned with, the player will discover that the gang wars have been masterminded by a secret society, at the head of which are a coterie of terrifyingly dangerous and powerful figures that, it seems, no bullet will stop.
Paradise City is coming to North American shores in late summer 2007
