Description

As the name implies, 'Newerth' is the New Earth some long time in the future after man has managed to destroy all that has been created and are not in a time period of magical and technological conflict.

The game is a Real Time Strategy Shooter (RTSS) as the designers call it. One player acts as the commander and builds a base, controls workers, researches, gives orders, etc. The difference is that the battle units are all player controlled up to a maximum of 31 per team (64 players/server max).

The game itself is a battle between man and evolved beast lead by a sorceress. It is a completely different experience from any other game on the market but is similar to CounterStrike and Warcraft III mixed together. For the full story in a handy comic book format visit the website.

As a side note, the game has no monthly charge and is online only. The game comes in one disc or the player may download it and purchase a CD-Key online.
