Characters and Story:

Twisted Metal: Black OnlineTM does not include a storyline. The game is car combat in it's purest form. However the gameplay does not differ from the original Twisted Metal: BlackTM version. The story was about a mysterious man named Calypso that breaks out a group of deranged and cursed individuals from an insane asylum so they can compete in his car combat tournament. All of the characters have a ghastly history as to why they're in the asylum and many of their horrific lives intertwine in some fashion or another. Basically, all the characters have gone through hell and have scores to settle.
