The War of the Worlds
Inspired by HG Wells classic Sci-fi novel 'The War of the Worlds' our epic re-telling of the iconic tale of Martian invaders begins at the height of World War 2. With humanity in turmoil and its focus on the spread of Nazi power across the globe, the aliens who have long been observing our species pick their moment to invade.
Humanity is given very little warning and all able bodied men and women not already caught up on the front lines are ordered to report for basic weapons training. The odds look stacked against us, our resources and defenses have been severely weakened by years of War and the first reports show we will be facing a race which is far more
advanced than our own. The Nazi forces are continuing their onslaught despite pleas for a truce and the situation is looking very bleak for mankind
There is hope however. Unbeknownst to most of us, Aliens have long been sending ships to Earth in order to observe. One of these ships was shotdown over the Highlands of Scotland. Project Svalinn was undertaken and some of the worlds greatest minds have spent years reverse engineering the technology found aboard the craft
The player takes on the role of Sgt John Clarke, a highly celebrated soldier who has been severely wounded in Italy. Rushed back to the UK, you awake in the belly of Project Svalinn's HQ in London on the eve of invasion. Your consciousness has been transplanted into the Svalinn suit, giving you access to the same technology possessed by the invaders. Time is short, you must master the futuristic weaponry and become familiar with the capabilities of your new body but the first of the motherships have been seen above the outskirts of the city.
Set across multiple countries and city's, battling through tunnels, urban environments and open fields the player will experience a thrilling mix of traditional warfare and futuristic alien technology as he leads the defence of Earth....It is the eve of mankinds greatest war.
