The game is set in the future, when humanity, united in a Federation, begins to colonize subsequent planetary systems in search of natural resources and living space. Soon, the Federation's authorities, unprepared for the expansion, limit their actions to distributing the terraforming concessions among rivaling Exploring Corporations. Consecutive planets of the borderspace fall into the relentless rule of the mighty syndicates. The new worlds, devoid of the Federation's supervision, become a dreamland for criminal activity on a yet unseen scale.

The humanity inevitably drifts towards anarchy. The situation is made even worse by the increasing number of cases of successful attacks on high representatives of the Federation's authorities, by terrorists organisation members aided with a yet unknown stimulus. The synthetic enzymes based substance increases stamina, releases aggression and improves motorics. The results of the investigation indicate that the substance might have come from the laboratories of one of the terraforming corporations.

The gamer acts as an operative of future's special forces unit - SpecForce. Established to fight crisis situations that threaten the Federation's peace, equipped with the latest combat gear, the unit is the Federation's elite rapid reaction force.

SpecForce's multiplayer mode boasts a diverse collection of game play types. Players can now strap themselves into a futuristic Power Armor, and use its multiple systems to introduce new tactical elements to the game.

Aside from a wide selection of weapons and equipment, players also have the option to man a diverse collection of multiple vehicles. Some of these include pursuit and two-seater off road vehicles, Armored Personnel Carriers (APCs) and combat mech-like Walkers.

SpecForce hosts 4 unique multiplayer modes: Death Match, Team Death Match, Team Domination and Capture The Flag, each supporting up to 32 players. The game is bundled with an easy-to-use map editor.

Techland's latest title is best described as a SciFi shooter, in which the player is drafted into an elite spec-ops unit in the future. Equipped with the latest tech tools and weapons, working alone, or as an integral part of his unit, he must face terrorist factions that threaten man kind. The arena - a vast landscape of both futuristic urban environments, and an uncharted territory dominated by nature. All SpecForce multiplayer maps have been created in association with popular on-line games clans.

The exact premiere date remains unspecified, but SpecForce is expected to ship in the late second quarter of 2005.
