Matt Hazard is back!
There's never been another hero quite like Matt Hazard. In the 1980s, he reached the apex of the gaming world, becoming one of the most popular video game heroes. Once he retired from the gaming scene, the world thought they had heard the last of Matt Hazard. Now he's ready to make his dramatic comeback, leaving retirement behind to enter the next-gen video game scene and face off against his old adversaries once again. With only the mysterious "QA" to help him, Matt must fight against a legion of Marathon Megasoft catalogue of videogame characters to keep it from being "Game Over" forever. Eat Lead pays homage to the games of yesteryear with a menagerie of classic enemies such as zombies, space marines, cowboys, genetically mutated super snipers, and more and an expansive level environment design that reflects videogame history in a next-gen package. The game fires on all cylinders with explosive artillery and combat moves to help gamers escape from a variety of predicaments including radically-changing environments during gameplay via "hack effects" Hazard's nemesis uses by altering the game's code on the fly. Throughout the adventure, players will utilize a strategic cover system dubbed "point and cover," upgradeable weapons and different interactive melee moves to attack and outsmart foes.
