Alex Sawyer and his best friends, Zee Hatcher and Simon Rojo-Flores, have escaped from Furnace Penitentiary. However, their joy is short-lived when they learn that not only are SWAT teams looking for them but berserkers and other hideous mutants are prowling the burning, corpse-littered streets and buildings. With the aid of a young woman, Lucy Wells, Alex and his friends struggle to flee from the city. Unfortunately, the berserkers they encounter are carrying a more virulent, more mutative strain of the nectar. As the plague of berserkers spreads across the dying city, Alex learns that the role he is playing is a very important one in Alfred Furnace’s plans for world domination.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Forever altered by his experience in Furnace Penetentiary, Alex has done the impossible and escaped. But the battle for freedom is only just beginning. Charged with his superhuman abilities, Alex must uncover the last of Furnace's secrets—the truth about the man who built the prison, the man known as Alfred Furnace. And to do that he must stop running and finally confront his greatest fears.
