One of the most alluring elements of the Internet is that of the hacker. They're the elite programmers working in the dark reaches of cyberspace, going where nobody was meant to.

Using powerful virtual hardware, software, and an undercover network, players will hack into rival computer systems, frame the innocent, manipulate markets and much more.

Trust is a weakness.


  • Original gameplay: Players have the opportunity to be freelance hackers.

  • Thrilling action: Players have to make those last 15 seconds count and feel the tension rise, as their signal is traced.
