In an alternate future, the cold war ends differently resulting in a 3rd world war. With the world in a continued war mentality - new walking tanks called 'Hounds' are created. Three countries face off in a new way each trying to maintain their own sovereignty. The game puts you in control of six different role type hounds (Soldier, Sniper, Defender, Scout, Heavy Gunner, and Tactics Commander). Play through missions where you use each different role type and gain parts to build your own hounds. Then take the battle online where you can make your own squads and join the online campaign to see which of the three countries will reign supreme.
On August 7, 2009 SEGA announced that it would close the servers on January 6, 2010. At that time, all online components for Chromehounds were no longer accessible and the game was only available for play in Offline modes.
