The player takes on the role of a desert stalker in post-apocalyptic Egypt. He's a free-roaming warrior scavenging over the dunes and destroyed cities looking for artifacts. He can take his finds to this hometown of Zeta, where they will pay cash for them. The lure of quick money is more than he can handle, but it's not like he can take whatever he wants without anyone in his way. There are other raiders, and he'll have to fight them to get the antiques.
