Not too far in the future... The global natural resources are on the brink of depletion. As our economies and our way of life tumble into chaos, the superpowers clash to gain control...

Tomorrow's Weapons, Today - As depicted in F.O.W., the U.S./E.U. and Russia/China have combined their military research and budgets, and the result is over 60 next-gen vehicles and weapons inspired by military designs for the near future. This includes remote controlled drones, gun cams, and next-generation counter-measures systems, all of which are player-controllable.
Customisation - The customisation system allows players to grow their soldier to fit their play style by choosing a weapons loadout, as well as a technical specialisation (role). As the game progresses each role will upgrade, providing advanced equipment and abilities. The system is a mix of RPG-like depth but with the accessibility of a fast-paced FPS.
Frontline Combat System - The main game mechanic featured in F.O.W. in both single player and multiplayer is the ability to join the forces on the frontline. This front expands across large portions of a mission and will require a strategy to achieve the contextual objectives in order to move this front forward. Not only does this system keep the battle centric and players in the midst of the action, it gives a unique sense of advancement as your Division is rewarded with territory for their victories.
Choose Your Path to Victory - Within the front, players can take advantage of a sandbox of destructible elements and various weapons of war to create their own unique paths and strategies. Instead of failing and re-playing the same sequence of events, players can 'chip-away' with varied approaches, allowing diverse missions with high replay value.
Huge Multiplayer Online Battles - Challenge up to 64 players online at any one time. Use high-tech combat systems to collect and relay recon, targeting, and threat information then share this between team mates using squad specific chat.
