Arc Light is a game of tactics and intrigue, pitting a team of Special Forces Operatives against the supernatural creations of the Arc Light serum. Players take control of members of the Situational Management Team, a group of specially trained individuals with a unique set of skills. Players must utilise these skills, and work together as a unit to achieve their Mission Objective.
Against the players are the hideous mutations of the Arc Light serum, the Omega Black security detail, and Dr. Jenas himself. Also lurking in the bowels of the facility is the doctor’s most successful creation, Rackstraw, 8ft of corded muscle, wielding a mini-gun in each hand.
Using the Mission Engine, players create their own scenario providing unique challenges and objectives which can range from simple escape, to seeking out and destroying Rackstraw.
