MONO – Blackwater

MONO – Blackwater

MONO, the former assassin to the queen and legendary ape-man, returns from exile only to learn he has a daughter taken captive by the Fold — a shadowy syndicate from his past.

As the cinematic story unfolds, you take control of MONO as he leaps into action to infiltrate the Fold’s Arctic lair.
