Reshape the battlefield—and the fate—of a broken nation in Fracture™
. In the 22nd century, the United States has been devastated by a catastrophic flood of the Mississippi River. It has torn the nation into two parts, and separate governments arise to control each half of the country. The Atlantic Alliance controls the area east of the river, and they put their restorative faith in the field of cybernetics. The Republic of Pacifica controls the western half, and they flourish by modifying their own genetic material to improve their citizenry. The Alliance finds this morally reprehensible. There is no compromise. There will be another Civil War.
Players take the role of Mason Briggs, an Atlantic Alliance soldier, who has the capability of terraforming land. With his advanced weapons, he can destroy and shape the land around him to his strategic advantage. But he must be on the watch for the genetically modified Pacifican forces, for they also have amazing and deadly abilities. It's the war of the future, and it's not pretty.
- Next-generation gameplay: Groundbreaking terrain deformation allows players to reshape the battlefield on the fly with futuristic weaponry, allowing for unprecedented power, freedom and control.
- Intriguing storyline: From the company that brought you Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and the gameMercenaries, now comes Mason Briggs, a demolitions expert and soldier of the Atlantic Alliance in Fracture. He is an action here for the new generation, a generation that is about to experience its country's second Civil War.
- Futuristic weaponry: Your weapons actually shape the territory around you, helping you to reach inaccessible places. Use the Tectonic Grenade to blast soil upwards, the Rocket Launcher to dig burrows, or the Vortex Grenade to create a swirling tornado of dust and debris to destroy your enemies.
- Gameplay from tomorrow's headlines: As stem cell research continues to proliferate, ideological differences over genetic enhancement place the player at the threshold of an epic battle of tomorrow between genetics versus cybernetics. Two powerful armies, with vastly differing tactics and advantages, square off, and the battlefield will change forever.
