Ready for more BLEEDOUT? The next installment of the episodic campaign of CRIMECRAFT: BLEEDOUT is set to debut! Episode 7 will be released this Saturday, Feb. 12 at 7:00 p.m. EST (Midnight GMT / Server Time).

In this first major content expansion to the Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Shooter CRIMECRAFT, players will experience The New Age of Ruin through 10 consecutive weekly episodes featuring story content from a lineup of comic book industry superstars.

Episode 7: 51 CARDS

Everyone has their shortcomings, but some people know how to exploit those perceived weaknesses and turn them into strengths. It only takes a few nutjobs to bring a system to its knees, and Sunrise City has its fair share of individuals riding the edge of Reason. Life in this age is a high-stakes card game, but a frightening number of individuals aren’t playing with a full deck…

This episode introduces the Player to Mayor Cartagena, and the tightrope of allegiances he must walk to maintain a seat of bogus authority in a city run by criminals. The Player will begin to see exactly which cards are being held in the shortening days leading up to the expiration of the Thumbcuff Accord, and the stakes continue to grow as that clock ticks towards zero.

Illustrated by Howard Chaykin (AMERICAN FLAGG, CONAN).

In April 2011, Archaia Black Label and Vogster Entertainment will publish an original graphic novel hardcover based on BLEEDOUT, written by Mike Kennedy and collecting short stories drawn by Chaykin and other top talents in the comic book industry, including Ben Templesmith, Tim Bradstreet, Glenn Fabry, Trevor Hairsine and Nathan Fox.
