third great epoch of war was over. Scattered remains of Yuri forces
resisted defeat by the conglomerate of Soviet-Allied forces for so
long, before being expunged or taken prisoner.
But before that finally took place, the death toll for what has become
dubbed the Yuri War numbered in the billions, as Yuri turned comrades
against one another, and all sides suffered horrendous losses at the
hands of both friend and foe. All three sides were in a bloody stalemate,
as despite their great advantage in numbers, the Allied and Soviet
troops were easily susceptible to Yuri's subversion, enabling him
to keep control of the strongholds he owned with little difficulty.
In a drastic attempt to reduce the losses to the Great Alliance of
East and West, one man once again tried to take up the rein of peacemaker,
using his technology…
Professor Einstein, captivated by the prospect of further enhancing
the robot technologies that both the Allies and Soviets employed,
and funded massively by the United States Government, as well as key
countries in the Allied Forces, Einstein unwittingly launched the
beginnings of another horrible conflict that would rest upon his shoulders
for the rest of his life. He created a robotic network of interconnected
machines of war based on reverse-engineered models Soviet, Allied,
and Yuri robots, as well as countless designs of his own, their primary
function: To destroy Yuri.
These robots soon began to dominate the battlefields, for Yuri's mind
controlling and bio-chemical tricks had no effect upon these inorganic
killing creations. It seemed to be the perfect system. He controlled
all of the operations of his host of robots from the safety of his
laboratory. He developed an advanced A.I. to help him organize the
activities of his horde of machines as they became more intelligent,
and they soon began to function autonomously, without need of Einstein's
commands to pursue the task they were set.
Things were going perfectly. The robots maintained a level of precision
unimaginable by the inferior, mortal humans. However, there was one
flaw in Einstein's system.
After the destruction of Yuri, Einstein programmed the robots to maintain
order and peace. But something was wrong. The robots, for some reason,
began to defy commands-apparently because of some communications error,
Einstein thought. But this problem was far more profound than originally
perceived... the robots soon began to turn against their human masters,
and fight under their own banner, that of Einstein's AI, NEXUS.
When Einstein queried it as to its disobedience, NEXUS responded:
"While humans exist, there will always be war. I was created to bring
peace to the world, and that is what I will do."
War is afoot. The world is in a state of emergency, order in ruins.
The Soviet Union has collapsed, its infrastructure left fractured
by the Yuri War, and also by Yuri decadents who still lurked in the
underworld, bringing mistrust and hatred in their wake…civil war erupted,
and from the ashes emerged the Freedom League, a fanatical bunch of
united followers, equipped with technology they've scrounged and botched
together, as well as unflagging devotion to their cause.
The Allies have retreated into bubbles, and forced Einstein to upgrade
their technology and make them the most powerful elite task force
in the history of the world, in order to try to contain the new threat…
The threat of the robot AI, NEXUS, whose numberless hordes grow as
his production lines churn out drone after drone to wage the Machine
War, to purge the world of all humanity and bring peace…a peace that
it knows cannot exist while humans still breathe.
Who now will prevail?
