You and 34 other solo players fight to the death, and when you die you respawn as an undead version of your Legend in the "Shadow Squad". When undead, you can't use weapons or Legend abilities, but can move faster, jump further, climb walls and you have a super-strong melee attack. Like an old Halo zombies mode! When 10 survivors remain you have to team up and get to the evac ship to win, while the Shadows try to stop you.
