CrimeCraft: Bleedout Episode 6:  THE ACHILLES HELIX, Earn a reputation.  Build a gang.  Kill the competition ..

Vogster Entertainment announced today Episode 6: THE ACHILLES HELIX, illustrated by Gary Erskine will premier on Saturday February 5th. CrimeCraft: BLEEDOUT, combines the best of MMORPG gaming (thousands of players, loot, guilds/gangs, crafting, trading, missions, customizable skills, PvE and PvP Combat) with the fast-paced action and skill-based gameplay of a shooter.

CrimeCraft: BLEEDOUT, is set in the persistent world of Sunrise City, a gang-infested near-future metropolis reeling from the total collapse of the world economy.  This newest update features the second volume of weekly episodes that will reveal back-stabbing conspiracies and world-shaking revelations.  The story of the collapse and the New Age of Ruin continues in Episode 6: THE ACHILLES HELIX, written by Mike Kennedy (Star Wars, Superman, Alien vs Predator) and featuring artwork by comic book veteran Gary Erskine (Dan Dare, Star Wars, Terminator, Transformers).

BLEEDOUT Episode 6: THE ACHILLES HELIX

This episode focuses on The Sons of Liberty, and the secret projects brewing in their military laboratories.  The Player will participate in experiments that could either result in Uber-soldier abilities or tragedy.  The mysterious disappearance of their former leader also starts to point towards dangerous secret agendas that could change the landscape of Sunrise City forever.

Nowadays, you're lucky if you don't end up as a puddle of hair, teeth, and eyeballs.  And it's not just the violent combat running wild on the streets that can put your life at risk.  Even the promises of 'beneficial science' come with a risk, but if you're one of the lucky ones to survive the program, you could stroll out of the lab more powerful than ever.  But that's a big if...

This newest major content update includes the following features:

·         Episodic Conclusion– Players will witness the heart pounding conclusion of the Bleedout Campaign and learn the secret behind what caused the world's collapse.
