In the 21st century, a disaster of apocalyptic proportions destroys human civilization. Only a handful of people manage to escape it. On a giant spaceship, they flee to a distant planet that promises to be paradise. But the poor, the forgotten, and those without scruples are left behind. Coldnss and poverty reign on Earth for 700 years before humankind finally succeeds in creating a new civilization. Time has left its mark on the human race, and the circumstances of life have brought out certain skills: the ability to adapt, incredible physical strength and even supernatural powers. Thus equipped, rivaling factions of survivors are now fighting over power and resources. The few towns that exist are polluted by crime, corruption and mistrust.
Form alliances with other players, plot and scheme, snoop and spy, and fight for power. Train your skills to gain wealth and influence, or choose to live the life of a recluse in the vast and adventurous wastelands in the middle of nowhere.
Within the city, you travel by subway. In the rambling wastelands, you are able to use various kinds of transport. Wield your self-made weapons in a first person perspective against monsters, mutants, and your fellow players. Battle in specially constructed arenas without suffering damage to your skills and values. Experience a world that is constantly changing and expanding.
Whatever you may choose to do: Prepare to enter a whole new life in a world that is both ancient and completely new - in Neocron!
