Huxley is the first massively multiplayer online game to combine the twitch-based fast-action gameplay of a first person shooter (FPS) with the cerebral character development of an MMO to deliver an intense and exciting online entertainment experience of a complete MMOFPS. Players will be drawn into the genre-bending game play, riveting cinematic graphics and intricate setting of Huxley, where they will choose between two races, Sapiens or Alternatives and struggle to obtain a powerful energy source while fighting endless battles against the Hybrids, a mysterious third group born of the two races.
In the not-so-distant future, a huge swarm of Nuclearite clouds passing through our solar system shatters the Earth's moon. Lunar fragments mingled with the radioactive Nuclearites and showered Earth with debris, catapulting the World into the greatest cataclysm in history. In this post-apocalyptic world human beings have mutated and divided into Sapiens, Alternatives and Hybrids. The Sapiens and Alternatives both battle for control of the Earth's resources as the Hybrids, a mysterious third race, fight for their very survival. Do you have what it takes to obliterate and dominate the competition? Choose your side, create your character, grab a weapon and get the enemy in your cross-hairs in Huxley!
