Discuss Fracture and interact with other fans at http://community.fracturegame.com.
Fracture takes place in the year 2161. A series of ecological and seismological disasters have radically altered the planet's landscape, and a classic ideological clash between the genetically altered Pacificans and the cybernetically enhanced Atlantic Alliance has brought the world to the brink of war. Players find themselves right in the middle of the genetic vs. cybernetic conflict as Jet Brody, a highly trained weapons expert fighting for the Alliance.
Fracture features truly next-generation gameplay with the use of "groundbreaking" terrain deformation engine technology. Players are able to literally reshape the battlefield as they see fit using advanced, futuristic weaponry that provides unprecedented power, freedom and control. Use Tectonic Grenades to jolt the ground skywards to access otherwise unreachable areas; take out hidden enemies with strategic use of the Torpedo Gun; or, blast out a crater to provide cover with the Entrencher during particularly intense encounters.
Fracture will be available October 2008 for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION3. More information about the game can be found at the official Fracture site, www.fracturegame.com.
