* The Story So Far *

The Commander General speaks to you:

- The Earth is once again under attack from terrible demons from Hell. And this time, they seem to have brought a curse with them, that causes infected humans to not only
become the zombies we're used to see, but to develop an insatiable hunger for blood. Once bitten, humans die and become monsters without empathy and without soul.
Once this state has occured, only death can save these humans from their evil desire...
The EEF (Earth Evacuation Facilites) (tm) is doing their part of course, but there's no way that they can get to enough people in time.

- So you see, Marine, this is no easy task we all have ahead of us.

- Many squad teams are being sent out to different places to try and defeat hellspawn as well as any of these former humans that's now inflicted by this curse.
Your mission is to clear out a few spots yourself. Three tech-bases and a few city areas need your immidiate attention, soldier! There's no time to waste,
so go out there and kill as many as possible of these hellspawn that's responsible for the curse, but also kill as many of the human monsters as you can, 
for there really is no way to save them. And we need to clear out the bloodcursed as soon as possible, they constantly infect new innocent people, 
we better act fast if there are to be any humans left to save.

- So grab your trusty pistol and get ready for action!
