Welcome to the distant planet Lyrius

Though a vastly different game type and featuring a brand new game engine designed and developed from the ground up, Line Of Defense primarily takes place on the distant planet called Lyrius located in the Sirius starsystem. Once used for bio and Weapons based research, this planet was tech rich and home to one of Galactic Command’s (GALCOM) primary research installations.

The Sirius star system itself is home to two space sectors with a total of three planets and two moons. Connected via jump anomalies is the Barnard's Star system, also home to three planets and two moons in two space sectors.

Of the ten planets and moons in both star systems, only the Lyrius planet has thus far been colonized and thus habitable. On it are four continents each spanning roughly 16x16km. Each continent was chosen for its unique characteristics, topology and due to being located on different Climate zones.

As part of their colonization and research, GALCOM forces constructed a primary colony on each of the four Continents. A military starbase was built on each of the four continents, with one being constructed within the walls of an abandoned city.

As the years went by and the planet’s Resources were depleted, GALCOM’s focus shifted to other planets. It didn’t take long before the Insurgents, a Terran group that is in direct opposition to GALCOM forces, showed up. They took over the bases and city, then all but killed every single GALCOM military personnel left on the planet. Shortly after, they started to wage war on GALCOM forces in other parts of the star system using Lyrius as their base of operations.

That’s when GALCOM finally decided to commit military forces to the planet in a bid to exterminate the Insurgents.

Play as either a GALCOM military marine or an Insurgent soldier. The primary objective is to gain control of each of the four Planetary Bases, four Space Stations and a Derelict Carrier – all of which you can do combat inside. You do this by waging war as an Infantry Marine (first or third person), on land or Naval Vehicles and Aircraft. You will take over bases by either destroying or Hacking into and disabling their defense systems, thus making them vulnerable. You will do this 24-7 and 365 days a year on the Lyrius planet or in the space region above it – and all within a 100% persistent universe.
The Terran Opposing Forces
Each side has four classes which can be customized depending on player preference. There are currently no fixed classes.
