Imagine Risk, evolved to support 200,000 players on one map. BattleCell is an Earth-based multiplayer strategy game. Its unique land-conquest gameplay balances new and established players in competitive and cooperative engagements. The massive real-time map couples PvE and PvP play with live player interaction within a single persistent world.
Every action matters. Players choose their path to success by balancing their diplomatic, economic and military powers.
Technology has marched mercilessly toward omniscience and omnipotence, but not on the shoulders any government. A few large multi-national corporations pursued the finer points of power: nanotech, energy and algorithms.
In the last few decades, these few corporations have consolidated the world’s military might through economic manipulation and technological prowess. They have become the all-powerful Section 6. Among its many dubious facets, Section 6 operates a number of secret research laboratories throughout the world, whose purpose is to ensure the group's unassailable control.
You have become an agent for Section 6, the conglomerate responsible for creating the Lazarus weapons system. These days, Section 6 agents are the law. Governments are weak, inconsequential.
Recently, one of the Lazarus prototypes escaped confinement. It is now spreading in the wild. You’ve been ordered to eradicate the sentient Lazarus Kappa prototype by any means necessary. Seize any land that suits your fancy, inhabitants included. Infiltrate and sabotage any competitor, perceived or otherwise. Section 6 has granted you near-infinite discretion to do as you see fit.
Build a military engine and wage war on anyone who blocks your path, wherever it may lead. Accrue an arsenal of weapons, forces and resources; compete in sandboxed arena games and the global battlefield theater. Get some nukes. Spread the love.
