I'm going to be as interested in the future history fiction behind this game as the gameplay, so I want to speculate about the factions involved. Two of the 8 (or possibly 7) factions seem to have been confirmed in previews: American Reclamation Corporation Panasian Cooperative So it seems the factions are likely to be continental / major power sized sponsored. Judging by the launch trailer, Brazil(ia), France (possibly EU-alike) and Egypt (Arab?) will probably feature. So a first stab at a list of 8, covering the world: American Reclamation Corporation Panasian Cooperative Brazilia (Latin American-esque) France/EU (European Space Agency-esque) Egypt/Arab (from trailer) Russia Japan (different enough from a Pan-Asian faction that may include India and China) African (Nigerian based? Namibia, from Morgan Industries?) Let speculation commence!
