WorldShift combines traditional real-time strategy gameplay with RPG-style multiplayer boss raids as gamers controls one of three factions in a desperate struggle to take control of Earth's dwindling resources. In the 21st century a giant, plague-carrying asteroid dubbed "Shard Zero" crashed into Earth, decimating the planet. WorldShift is set thousand of years later, when all of humanity resides in five mega-cities, plague-addled mutants roam the wilderness, and hostile aliens have invaded. All three factions are vying for the precious resource Xenolite, and the single-player campaign takes players through an 18-mission campaign that unravels the secrets of Shard Zero and the plague it unleashed. WorldShift does away with traditional technology trees, instead offering gamers a variety of items and relics that allow for on-the-fly alterations of each playable race. Many of the upgrades become available after defeating enemies and completing missions, but the most powerful relics can only be acquired by teaming-up with a friend to take on the game's most harrowing adventures. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
