The first in game video from Black Sea Studios upcoming RTS WorldShift has dropped and it looks shifty. Ok so I couldn't come up with some snappy banter for that one, it's been a long day. Anyway the game looks like it is progressing quite well even though it doesn't look like any actual gameplay is included in this video. But no matter, they have plenty of time to wow us and win us over. So let's see if the Bulgarian developer can shift the world in their favor.

WorldShift is a next-generation, cyber-fantasy RTS game set in a dark
future of Earth, where today's civilization is only a fading mysterious
legend. With WorldShift, Black Sea Studios are again offering really
different, unexplored view on the RTS genre and a lot of deep,
addictive gameplay. 

The Video:

 Previous cinematic trailer:

 It's in German and talks about a major disaster in the near future, who will dominate the new world  men or mutants...coming 2008 for PC. I'm sure you gathered most of that anyway.

Here's the Deal: 

 In the 21st century, shortly after the colonization of our Solar System
had begun, a huge dark object appeared beyond the orbit of Pluto. The
object, called 'Shard Zero' by the scientists, possessed some kind of a
deadly aura, spreading mysterious 'plague' of cosmic scale around
itself, twisting and disrupting the very nature of space and life.
There was no time for reaction, and all attempts to study the anomaly
remained futile. When we finally realized the object is moving on a
collision course with our planet, it was too late. Shard Zero hit Earth
and that was the end of our civilization.

WorldShift is set
thousands of years later (yet that Broadway sign survived for the cinematic trailer), when our civilization is no more than a
fading myth. The remains of Shard Zero still are spreading its Plague,
twisting and re-shaping Earth and its nature, sometimes in the course
of centuries and sometimes in a matter of hours. Humans developed a new
culture and now live in 5 mega-cities, struggling every day for the
precious resources they need to survive. The rest of Earth is populated
by the Tribes, successors of early humans, that were affected by the
Plague.

A NEW TAKE ON STRATEGY
WorldShift is a next-gen
cyber-fantasy RTS game designed to be quick and very easy to learn and
play. It offers hectic, fierce encounters all around the Earth and a
fascinating story uncovering ancient secrets about the true nature of
the Shard and the Plague. But also, WorldShift introduces many features
new to the genre, like modifiable factions, unqiue cooperative
multiplayer gameplay, and more.

ITEMS, RELICS AND THE ABILITY GRID
In
WorldShift, there are no technology trees featuring hundreds of
upgrades; instead, WorldShift allows the players to discover and
acquire a vast number of items and powerful relics that they can use to
freely change their gameplay and preferred tactics and to surprise
their foes. The players will gather items as they fight their opponents
and as rewards for completing missions. But to discover the most
powerful relics, they must form teams with their most trusted friends
and embark on deadly missions where it is difficult to survive and
where the real challenges await.

GAME FEATURES
● Fast and furious multiplayer
● Thousands of items and powerful relics to collect
● Use items and relics to build your own tactics
● The best cooperative, player-vs-environment gameplay ever made in RTS game
● Random maps for infinite exploration
● Unique blend of post apocalyptic setting, hi-tech and primitive
● Epic, dangerous missions with great rewards
● 3 playable races


Now if it's really thousands of years there had better not be any remnants of society left. Take a look at what we have from thousands of years ago today, and that's without a major catastrophe. So they had better not screw this up.
