The military bases went into radio silence, and the locals talked about the obscure flesh-eating creatures and devastated villages. The most advanced Soviet scientific team “Expedition Zero” was immediately sent to the zone with state-of-the-art research technology and mechanized protective suits. Many years later, the lone survivor of the team is still trying to find his way home.
