Mia Culper is an assassin. Navigating her way through a series of underground chambers she must find and kill her target. Prepped with a camera and microphone Mia live streams her journey to her Contact, who guides and advises her through the mission, ensuring she achieves her objective and stays in the shadows.

 

By the End of Us has two player experiences:

 

The Single Player - You are Mia's Contact. You sit in a private room in front of a monitor where you receive Mia’s live feed. It is your responsibility to communicate with her and guide her through the mission. You make the decisions, you call the shots - can you ensure she finds and eliminates the target?

 

The Multi Player - You view Mia’s live feed on large screens and help determine the success or failure of her mission. Armed with secret intel, hidden agendas and electronic keypads, you, and those around you, collectively decide on key moments within the game. Your allegiance is up for grabs - your choices mean the difference between life and death, between winning and losing.
