The year is 1999. The government has unveiled the technology that for fifty years had been kept secret since the crash at Roswell, New Mexico. In another fifty years, man will live in a world that is completely automated and populated by robotic assistance. Without warning, the
technology that man created will turn against him...

Some years later, a civilization is rebuilt by the humans surviving the brutal Mech Wars that threatened to exterminate them. As Lt Commander Joseph Hicks, you have been groomed for battle since birth. A decorated hero in the Mech Wars, you continue to serve the United Resistance Front, stationed at the Riker Containment Facility. Recently, a number of aliens have been captured, raising many questions amongst the scientific community here. Why were these aliens coming to Earth? What secrets were the URF commanders hiding?

It's more like a sequel :) 13 big levels, greatly updated gfx. Overall, I'd say it leaves Battle For Earth in the dust. A standalone version will be released, as well as an update so that people with BFE can just update their game to include the MP. I will also be concurrently releasing BFE 1.2 which has a great number of graphical improvements as well.

For a preview go to
