Reign of Fire for Xbox is set in dramatic scorched landscapes sometime in the near future. The scarred and devastated landscapes are a result of fierce battles between humans and dragons, two species competing for survival.
As the story goes, twenty years ago a group of workmen unwittingly awakened the last of the great dragons from its slumber deep below the Jubilee Line extension to the London Underground.
Reproducing at an alarming rate, mankind was quickly subdued by its offspring and the face of the planet changed into a wasteland of ash and decay. Bands of humans now huddle together in the few remaining dwellings trying to survive the best they can, yet always watchful for an attack from above. Some resistance exists, but not much as most are just living a day at a time.
