-The Story-

By the year 29,475 A.D. humanity has colonized many of the worlds in the Milky Way, both to accommodate the growing need for natural resources and the expanding number of people. Rubi-Ka is a small planet on the farthest frontiers of the Galaxy. A red and barren desert world, plagued by sandstorms and heavy winds, only made habitable by the terraforming process of the intergalactic hyper-corporation Omni-Tek.

What makes this planet precious is Notum, a substance used for powering the all-important nanotechnology - the reason why Omni-Tek has colonized the planet. Omni-Tek is very protective of this mining planet and fiercely safeguard their investment with an iron grip.
After creating your character, you enter the amazing world of Rubi-Ka as a new citizen and colonist where you must then decide where your alliance lies. Whether you sympathise with the rebel clans fighting to over throw the totalitarian regime or with the corporate behemoth Omni-Tek who's total world domination is growing by the day…or simply enjoy life as a neutral spectator going where fame and fortune might take you…your future and the future of Rubi-Ka is in your hands.

The Anarchy Online gameis a sophisticated, dynamic online world, where thousands of players can log on at the same time, roam around by themselves or in groups, shaping and creating their individual gaming experiences. Exploration, adventure, stealth and of course adrenaline pumping combat all add to the intensity of this deep and involving story line.
