We play as Judas “Saint” Miller, a 35-year-old Devote, one of the few that sacrificed his faith to escape from the Hushers instead to take refugee on the underground Secret Churches.
The government sends him to explore the Dark Zone of Navia, abandoned a few years ago. His mission is to set a safe route for the army to loot the area. For that, he needs to explore all the zone and search for survivors and resources that the government could use.
In his travel, he finds that violent groups control the area. They are using strange clothes and adore pagan goddesses. The first one that he faces is The Nothings, who adore the goddess, Morrigan. They use masks made of metal leftovers or wood and nails. The second one is the Ánimas who adore the goddess, Navia. They use white hoods and strange items, like ancient crosses, lanterns, and cauldrons. Both are violent and attack Judas. Both are violent and attack Judas.
After these radical groups, Judas finds only pollution and wild animals that only want to protect their territory. The contamination of the area is so extreme that Judas faints after a while, dizzy by the fumes. He awakes tied to a tree, bleeding by his wrists, which have open cuts. Frightened, he tries to untie himself, but a female voice stops him. From the fog, Judas sees how a woman appears, which introduces herself as Annabelle. She wears a veil that prevents Judas from seeing his face and over her head, she wears a crown made with white branches and decorated with a red cord. She tells Judas that the bleeding is necessary to heal his body from the disease that the pollution produces. The only thing that he needs to do is rest and have faith. After a while, he awakes again, this time untied and with his wounds bandaged. When he starts to explore the forest, he discovers a new group that adores the white trees from the wood and that mysterious woman called Annabelle. They are sick and in a constant state of hallucination. Unlike the others, they aren’t crazy, just weak from the sickness. In the middle of them, Judas met their old leader, Sebastián Alvar, who tells him that he doesn’t trust Annabelle. He tells Judas that when Navia city became in a Dark Zone, lots of survivors from the near Dark Zones came to loot the town. That was the first time that they saw Rites, crazy people that attacked everyone and, like a plague, they devastated everything. For that reason, they decided to blow all the subway entrances and protect, that way, their Underground City, Annabelle. However, when they did it, they should break a pipe or something similar, because they started to feel sick.
