DescriptionAs 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.
