Skip forward a few thousand years into the future and Humans have developed a new culture, Black Sea tells us, "and now live in 5 mega-cities, struggling every day for the precious resources they need to survive. The rest of Earth is populated by the Tribes, successors of early humans that were affected by the plague."
WorldShift features three playable races, and the developer's shunned the traditional tech trees in favor of items and powerful relics that it explains players can use "to freely change their gameplay and preferred tactics and to surprise their foes."
"The players," it continues, "will gather items as they fight their opponents and as rewards for completing missions. But to discover the most powerful relics, they must form teams with their most trusted friends and embark on deadly missions where it is difficult to survive and where the real challenges await." Very dramatic.
