It's 2156, and the world has been destroyed by both nuclear and bio-chemical means. Your story takes place in one of the few habitable places left in the world, the Grand Canyon. As a clone with an uncertain past, your job is survival in a world now built on destruction, betrayal and fragile factional alliances.
Explore, harvest and stake your claim to over 1,000 square kilometers of harsh and mysterious terrain. The classless advancement and non-linear gameplay allows you to play the character you want.

Between the sheer mass of movies, TV shows, and videogames depicting variations on the post-apocalypse, after a while they all start to blend together. You'll see small communities binding together, wild outcasts or mutants causing troubles for decent folk, and remnants of the formerly all-powerful government upsetting the delicate balance of post-civilized existence. Thankfully, despite its familiarity, the genre can be as engaging as ever. In Fallen Earth's case, Reloaded Productions has crafted an MMO that can be as immersive as any other post-apocalypse game, even if the empty wasteland is filled with dozens of players at any given time.
Fallen Earth is set in the year 2156, nearly a hundred years after the Shiva virus and nuclear warfare wipe out 99% of humanity. Within Hoover Dam, a military force has made use of advanced technologies to create expendable clones for the purpose of rebuilding society and forced organ harvesting. During an attack from the outcast "Children of the Apocalypse" or CHOTA, the cloned player manages to free themselves to be respawned in the open world, where they can set about making their fortune.
Fallen Earth's environment is based on a real-world topographical map of the Grand Canyon, giving players 1000 square kilometers to explore and fight in. The player can fast travel with vehicles ranging from horses, motorcycles, and ATV's, lending a strong sense of size to the blasted landscape. Six factions have divided up the territory in the wake of Hoover Dam's fall, which the player can align themselves with to gain skill and faction benefits. Each faction will have friendly or hostile relationships with the others, including an archenemy that the group is completely opposed to. The design allows for more complexity than the two super-factions provide by most MMOs, while lending additional depth to the game's backstory. PVP players gain additional benefits from the system through Territory Control mode, which allows factions to fight to control certain open-world territories in real-time.
Whether the player aligns themselves with a faction or remains neutral, Fallen Earth provides a wealth of options for character development. The game features a classless system that allows players to advance common skills, specialized tradeskills, and special mutation paths. Before maxing out, players will gain enough points to fill 4-5 character stats 4-5 skills/mutations, allowing characters to focus skills without being restricted to a particular class format. Player choice even extends to resource development, as players have the option to loot corpses for supplies or obtain the bulk of their inventory from a robust crafting system.
Whether gathering supplies, enjoying the scenery, or fighting it out in the wasteland, shooter and post-apocalypse fans alike should find lots to do in Fallen Earth.
