Exclusion is set in the year 2013, in a fictional place in which 4 factions are fighting for control of the local bases and areas.
The year is 2013 and the world is slowly recovering from the terrorist attacks that almost caused a nuclear armageddon back in 2001. Unknown terrorists infiltrated the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and detonated a small number of bombs, those bombs triggered massive explosions in the remaining reactors of the plant. This caused massive leaks of toxic radiation which have spread throughout Europe and some parts of Asia within weeks of the explosion. Soon allegations of NATO causing the explosion started emerging, which almost caused a third war but was stopped in time before any armed conflict started.
The current state of the world is slowly returning to normal. But the attack of 2001 have left a mark on the world, Many strange things have been happening lately. Things that are hard to explain, things that shouldn’t even exist and things that defy all laws of nature. Those things come in form of various objects that is said to possess abilities beyond comprehension, others in the form of creatures yet unknown to the man. It is said that those creatures are a product of government experiment on various animals and even people. Those creatures are mostly seen in eastern Europe.
People have been hunting and selling them on the black market for a lot of money. So called “artifacts” have spread all around the world. Some of those artifact have displayed various effects and possible uses. The healing artifact also known as “Hand of God” has been used in treating cancer patients for quite some time and has successfully cured people from various physical ailments. Other artifacts give people abilities such as allowing them to breathe underwater, come in contact with high voltage without getting electrocuted and even survive falls from heights that would kill a man.
There are still many artifacts that are yet to be found. Recently there was a sighting of an artifact in the center of a town called Sivograd in Eastern Europe. But no one dares to go there due to high amounts of radiation. The town of Sivograd is described as a “chilling ghost town”. The scariest thing about it is the fact that everyone that was there in 2008 has died from an unknown cause. Autopsy reports say that the victims died from a sudden hearth attack, what is more baffling is the fact that radiation levels were relatively small and that the people that died had no medical issues and hearth problems prior to their death.
This unknown anomaly has intrigued many people. But no one knows that a small war for the artifact is slowly brewing….
The current date is 15th of October 2013.
A black military truck has been seen in the outskirts of Sivograd and a group of 5 men all in heavy military equipment with PBF gas masks have been scouting the area. Witness reports claim that they have a cicada logo on their left arms. These are without a doubt Cicada 3301 agents. Cicada 3301 is an enigmatic organization, their goals and ideals are unknown but there is a rumor that their leader is an A.I dubbed Mariana.
The second faction is a militant group of soldiers and war veterans, they call them selves “Free Soldiers” they fight for the profit and thrill. Their leader is Aleksandar Pantic. Anyone can join them as long as they have the guts and will.
The third factions is the second most infamous PMC in the world. Westside Security is a PMC like any other. Located in North America, they do the usual private military business; from armed or unarmed combat to combat support to security or security advisory services. This is their first job outside of America.
The forth and the final faction is Vostok Institute. They have been observing the anomaly from a distance, but now they decided that they must take action. Their goal is to reach the center of Sivograd and recover the artifact. For the past 10 years Vostok Institute of technology have been making various experimental weapons for the military. Records claim that they have made a lot of weapons: Rail rifles/guns, Gauss rifles, Radiation based weapons and most recently anomaly based weapons.
One of the scientists ventured alone into Sivograd looking for the anomaly, but he never came back. He carried a Rail gun called Protok...
The objective of the game is to reach the center of the map and grab the artifact, after that the team that holds the artifact must protect the carrier from other factions.
The carrier can't shoot from his weapons while holding the artifact due to its unstable nature.
The carrier will start glowing when holding the articat, this acts as a "marker" for other factions to focus their attacks and differentiate the carrier from other members of his team.
There are abandoned bases around the map which hold various loots and weapon caches in them.
The weapons that are located in those bases are not selectable from the class menu meaning they are rare and powerful.
Those weapons range from Crossbows to Sniper Rifles that fire electrical bolts and many more. Some bases won't have weapons in them but they do have ammunition and supplies.
We are currently looking for a coder that can help with the development and greatly speed up the progress of making the game.
Exclusion also features a class and loadout system
Assualt - Has a wide variety of assault rifles and explosive based weapons.
Support - Can drop an ammo box that refills ammo for teammates.
Medic - Can heal others and himself.
Sniper - Has a wide variety of sniper rifles and a pair of nightvision goggles.
Technitian - Can place a deployable cover that stops incoming bullets.
We have decided to move from Source engine to Unreal Engine 4 due to Source's limitations.
With Unreal Engine 4 we can implement a wide variety of game mechanics and a overall graphical update to the game.
