: : : : : Arena Wars

Background

It's the year 2137. From a military training simulation a new kind of sport evolved: Arena Wars. The sport has attracted the greatest minds and the richest syndicates across the globe, each seeking to become legends in their own right, balancing strategy, speed and insidiousness.

From many champions will rise one true power. Only the best can win the tournament and become immortalised in the new world of Arena Wars
