Summary[edit | edit source]
The Guardian is a giant bipedal machine that is designed to fight the effects of the Capsules and whatever is deploying them. Many citizens seem to place their trust wholesale in this Guardian, while a small minority seem to believe the Guardian itself is a scam, a cover up meant to give citizens a sense of security where there is none.
When the player arriving at Metropol, the Neural Interface and the power core are unloaded. Leaving Metropol, the player can see in the distance the Guardian being launched. Later on the game, the player will see the Guardian crashed, with his armor damaged. It's unknown why the Guardian has failed and one can only assume what happened: the power core was defective, the Neural Interface has malfunctioned, something attacked and defeated the Guardian (or too many zombies or a much larger variant).
Despite the fact that the Guardian had crashed, the player can see numerous light pillars across the land. The man with a shotgun, the Hunter, also tells the player that the Guardian plan was successful. When the player reach the final stage of the game, he will know what actually happened.
