Global Agenda is set during the 22nd century, in the wake of the World War III, which wiped two-third of the human population off the face of the Earth. The new world government, the Commonwealth, siezed power in 2079 and has since become one of the worst tyrannies in recorded history. Most of the Commonwealth forces are completely automated defense drones, and technology has become profoundly advanced over the course of the 21st and early 22nd centuries.
Because of the extensive use of nuclear weaponry during World War III, most of the world remains completely uninhabitable. The areas which are clean and inhabitable are fiercely contested by organizations known as agencies.
Gameplay EditThe game is very similar to other team-based multiplayer games, such as Valve's Team Fortress 2. The classes in the game have their own unique role in the team, complete with their own arsenals, strengths, and weaknesses. Like other RPGs, players level up by gaining XP in missions. Higher levels enable players to purchase better items and to improve their character's performance in missions by specializing in specified skills.
Players usually participate in co-operational teams, ranging from 4-10 players per team. Depending on the mission, the teams will compete against a variety of artificially intelligent NPCs (see PvE and Defense Raids), opposing players (see PvP and Arena), or against other agencies in a persistent, player-driven world (AvA). A fifth mission type, known as Warzone, has since been abandoned by Hi-Rez and will not be implemented.
There are also a few single-player and open-world segments in the game, which progress the storyline of your indvidual character. The PvE missions list also allows the player to select "Solo" mode, a single player version of the standard PvE co-op modes with less enemies and easier bosses.
Character Creation Edit
Main article: Character Creation
Players are allowed to create their own characters and refine their appearence with considerable detail. Players are required to create at least one character, but may utilize pre-set models or the random character generator. While creating your character, you also select your class and gender. Players may have up to eight characters saved on a single account.
Sandstorm was the first expansion added to the game, free of charge, during Summer 2010. It was released in two phases and incorporated several new features and a variety of new weaponry into the game. Additional expansion packs are expected to be released in the future for purchase.
