In 2060, humanity is on the cusp of the second technological revolution. Earth has become a tangled web of information, energy and transportation networks watched from orbit by thousands of electric eyes. Sprawling cities, vast spaceports, and immense military complexes are dominated by tanks, choppers and variety of other machines that rule land, sea and sky. While corporations still pull the strings that control the world, their grip is starting to weaken.
A revolution in the energy sector, combined with the accessibility of automated machines have created a world abundant in energy, where unmanned battle machines can fight the wars of man. Now mechs, super soldiers outfitted with top-of-the-line exoskeletons, and AI verging on sentience dominate global warzones.
Who and what do they fight for? Megacorporations are the new world order; the governments of yesteryear cower in their shadow, fighting for relevance. The accrual of more resources and proxy wars ravage countries. Handfuls of mercenary PMCs, with their robotic armies, are dispatched to far-off lands to do the bidding of their shady employers.
These battles fuse man and machines in a seemingly endless hybrid war, where total destruction is the only constant. But if there’s a war to be fought, there’s money to be made and power to be seized. In this environment, the victors are the outfit with biggest machines and, more importantly, the operators that command them.
