Corporations control everything. Almost. In a future ruled by hypercorps, the notion of good and evil is blurred with business practices. Governments and nations watch helplessly as corporations explode into empires, consuming market divisions and all walks of life.

At the head of the pack is the infamous dataDyne Corporation, founded and commanded by Zhang Li, its illustrious CEO. This mysterious character has all the traits of a megalomaniac; lust for power, wealth and above all else, control. Saturating the world with his technological marvels, services and divisions, Zhang Li's empire has few competitors, most of which meet a nasty end with a hostile dataDyne takeover.

As with all empires, dataDyne's grip on the world could never be absolute. Daniel Carrington, founder of the Carrington Institute and world renowned entrepreneur, has managed to fend off the industrial might of dataDyne in his own pursuit of new technology and resources.

Carefully working to dislodge the hypercorps' global reputation, the Carrington Institute has time and again subtly given the world a taste of market freedom.

The year is 2020, and with a young daughter to raise and protect, ex-cop turned bounty hunter Jack Dark pays the bills through his Dark Bail Bonds outfit.

Only accepting jobs meeting his ethical standards, Jack, joined by his daughter Joanna and mission runner Chandra Sekhar head to the city of Hong Kong for a rescue mission - little do they know that their anonymous employer is Daniel Carrington himself, and that this simple mission will ultimately lead to a chain of events affecting their lives, loyalties and destinies.

The official word:

"Joanna Dark returns in the Xbox 360 exclusive Perfect Dark Zero, the prequel to the internationally award-winning and multi-million selling first-person shooter Perfect Dark from famed game developer Rare.

A secret war has begun between shadowy corporations bent on world domination. Joanna Dark and her father Jack are caught up in the fight for the future of the planet. A routine bounty hunting mission rips open a global conspiracy that will change Joanna's destiny - forever."
