It’s the 30th year of the Coal Revolution. When the blessings of science were turned toward war, demand for raw materials increased. Control over these resources has become the focus of conflict. Military forces now occupy towns to seize their production, turning them into machines of war. Brutal and fruitless battles erupt, sundering a once-proud nation.
Now all that remain are two factions: The Rags and The Coats. The Rags are what remains of the citizens of the land. They seek to control of these resources in order to reclaim their homes and rebuild. The Coats are the remnants of the army, who are trying to control these resources to build more weapons and conquer all who oppose them.
Steam Warfare is a class-based team deathmatch experience with an emphasis on teamwork. Classes with complimentary abilities allow a player to play to their strengths and favorite play style. Resources add a level of strategy to the map – collect them to build a superweapon and fortify your base, while denying them from your opponents. Each match ends when a team destroys their enemy’s base, either by building a super weapon through resource collection or by traveling into the depths of their enemy’s base and destroying it from within.
