The Last War ended 13 years ago when supernatural doomsday bombs fell, killing billions and "terrorforming" the world into a vast Deadland, allowing the mysterious and powerful beings known as the Reckoners to manifest in the flesh.
The unholy beings rampaged across the Wasted West, decimating the survivors of the Apocalypse, then mysteriously vanishing across the Mississippi to parts unknown.
Since then, humanity has struggled to rebuild. Cities shudder beneath still-howling storms, leaving only the wastes to those few who remain. Horrors born of radioactive nightmare stalk the land. And in Denver, a meglomanaical cyborg rules an army of road warriors with an iron fist.
This is not the end of the story, but a twisted start to a tale unlike any you've ever played before! It's once again a time for heroes. Players take on the roles of radslinging Doomsayers, vengeful Law Dogs, brain-burning sykers, scavenging junkers and righteous Templars --or gun-toting survivors. Only by warring against the darkness that surrounds them can the heroes hope to end this Hell on Earth.
