21 Player Avatar Players create an Avatar to represent themselves on the battlefield Avatar may be edited once created on the player's profile menu As players advance in rank on the multi-player ladder, more cosmetic and slight gameplay customization options are available to their avatar The Army Commanders use their avatar in the field to lead their army and provide a cinematic focal point for battles The Base Commander's Avatar is a last line of defense for the base, standing vigilant at it's core

22 Community driven story Single player mode will provide the background for why the war between the New and Old Empire began The war itself will be fought online through official servers Official servers will carry maps that represent contested territory between the two empires on the global map After a regular period of time, maps will change from contested to controlled by one race based on map statistics, and new contested maps will be added
