Earth 2160 is intense, futuristic combat where your actions will help decide the fate of humanity. Only a few thousand humans managed to escape from Earth before its collapse in 2150. They spent the next few years terraforming on the red planet, breaking into three competing factions. In the year 2160 a strange new civilization awakens and a conspiracy is afoot. Choose, join a force or go it alone -- survive and thrive, or in death you'll effectively mark the end of the human race.
EARTH 2160 is the official sequel of the award winning, very popular and top selling EARTH series and continues the brand of Earth 2140 and Earth 2150. Only a few thousand humans managed to escape from the Earth before its collapse in 2150 A.D. They spent the next few years on the terra forming of the red planet, developing new technologies and building up new civilizations. Somehow each of the three fractions "Eurasian Dynasty", "United Civilized States" and "Lunar Corporation" did this independently and separately from each other - but in the year 2160 something strange happens in this new world. If ED, UCS and LC join forces or continue their old war against each other - is possibly now, up to the player.
Choose your faction wisely - Use the raw might and ancient wisdom of the Eurasian Dynasty, the cutting-edge science of the Lunar Corporation and the advanced tactics of the United Civilized States
