The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Until now there have just simply been no good landscaping/shooter games. Fracture aims to change that by planting the strange fruit of “landscape deformation.” In the multi-player death-matches of Fracture, all of the ground is able to be raised or lowered using special grenades and guns. One grenade raises the terrain into a hill, another lowers it into a depression. Since you move faster down hills than you do up them, you can use the grenades to create tactical advantage. Or a nice shade garden.

You, of course, with your extensive background in ground should have no problem reaping fields of frags.
