The year is 2084 and humanity is dying. Fourteen years have passed since humanity's homeworld, Earth, simply vanished from space. Now, the remaining survivors are fighting over what resources are left and mankind is facing extinction.

Three factions vie for control of the solar system, the Martian-based Islamic Federation, which possesses a monopoly on all food production, the Corporate Dominion far in the Jovian moons and the Socialist Star Republic, right between them, in the asteroid belt.

After a nuclear weapon is detonated in a Martian colony and the Federation threatens with an embargo on food supplies, mercenaries are hired to investigate the truth of what happened and more importantly, find out who possesses nuclear arsenals.

However, things are not always what they seem to be and this journey will lead them to a better understanding of mankind's role in the universe and a shocking discovery about humanity's true history and ultimate destiny.

Yes, it will be open-world and exploration will play a big part in the game. There will be three main areas to explore, each on a different planet and there will be three different cities, each with its own culture and architectural style.

No. They are, essentially, what happens when you have an army without a country, or civilian population.

More or less. The SSR consists of the US and Russian space fleets (US and Russia were allies in World War 3). When Earth disappeared, all these soldiers were left with one massive fleet and no country to defend, or civilian government to control them. What followed was martial law, which eventually set itself in and you can imagine what followed next.
