As Thorne's relentless army grows, it infects helpless programs, converting them into savage digital mercenaries aimed at spreading viral agents throughout the system. The security forces in the system struggle to quarantine the corruption, but they are hopelessly outnumbered by the mounting army of infected programs. Only a human "user" inside the computer world can even the odds. Armed with an arsenal of powerful digital weapons, players face off in epic, action-packed warfare along side security forces and against legions of horribly mutated programs as you fight to stop the corruption from spreading and bringing down computer systems worldwide. Currently in development by Climax's Los Angeles studio, TRON 2.0: Killer App will feature new, exclusive Xbox(TM) Live multiplayer combat, specially designed to deliver gamers a state-of-the-art online multiplayer gaming experience.TRON 2.0: Killer App for Xbox is scheduled for release in fall 2004.
