Game description: Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds lets you play as six characters from the TV show--Buffy, Faith, Willow, Xander, Spike, and a friend from the past. Use each character's unique abilities to defeat an ancient evil that threatens to destroy them and their world. Set in both familiar and new locations, the game challenges you to overcome a variety of challenges. Chaos Bleeds also features several multiplayer modes, including Domination, Last Man Standing, Bunny Catcher, and Slayer Challenge.
In this game Buffy discovers that Ethan Rayne is at the center of a great struggle with the First, literally the first incarnation of evil the world has ever known. She and the gang must face an undead army of vampires, zombies, and demons to keep these nefarious villains from casting the world into permanent darkness. The plot involves different alternate realities bleeding into Buffy's own reality, leading to the reappearance of deceased enemies and the appearance of evil versions of allies.
