After the highly detailed corporate Web site launched for Haze's fictional Mantel Global Industries, it left many of us wondering how deep the game's story might secretly be. Given the information for several fake products and activities, it made us think about why those details were provided, and what other information wasn't being shared. We know that Mantel Global Industries is a corporation that basically rules a good portion of the world with hostile force thanks to their mysterious "Nectar" substance. So what else is there to know?
With the power to alter your physical abilities by using this addictive drug, the video above shows the many ways to play a Mantel Global Industries combat squad leader. Sure, the rough outline of the story behind Haze seems pretty simple, maybe even boring. When I saw the first screenshots it looked like a knock-off of Crysis to me. Although, after watching the video after the jump, it looks like Free Radical is pushing the story further than I thought they would. The two amusing French guys in the interview weren't very impressed at first either, but if you watch to the end you'll see the beginning of a few intriguing twists Haze has in store for us.
