Elaborate, varied battlefields offer a multitude of tactical options to ensure exciting, tense, and relentless action in five versus five online battles.

Background
It's five minutes into the future, and the world has crashed and burned.

Rising from the smoking wreckage of failed states, five corporations rose to reign supreme over a lawless disillusioned society. One by one national governments crumbled as they failed to stem the money and power wielded by these conglomerates; eventually they succumbed to their superior financial resources and cunning tactical operatives.

Corporations soon found their influence reaching beyond all international borders, now backed with the strength of the world powers’ militaries for hire. As the lines blurred further, corporations began hiring their own forces directly, finding that most missions could be better completed by a small, mobile, highly-trained and well-equipped squad.

The five multi-conglomerates are now the sole providers of the only semblance of stability in an anxious world that would prefer to keep its head down, purchase its luxury items, and live in a safe company town run by its employers. Each of these mega-corporations harvests, manufactures, markets and produces nearly everything, and each of them caters to a very specific target consumer - but there are always ranks of smaller corporations hungry for a piece of the pie, and looking to supplant one of the Fortune Five.

When a corporate client has a piece of aggressive acquisition or downsizing with extreme prejudice to perform, they keep their hands clean and, as per company policy, outsource to the experts: the mercenary bands and agencies that have sprung up in the wake of massive global demobilization. Staffed primarily by ex-members of the armed forces of every nation, some are little better than pirates, but most are professional outfits that emphasize top-of-the-line equipment and experienced, deadly employees. They are the finest mercenaries the planet has to offer: the elite.
