In the far reaches of space, factions of humanity battle over a rare and
dangerous resource known as Rift Energy. Colonies of humans called Rifters have
been exploring the “Frontier” of planets, but find their way of life
threatened by the Outcast, a ruthless species of humans who have mutated into
psychotic monsters due to exposure to this very same Rift Energy. Caught in the
middle is Emmett Graves, a hired gunslinger ostracized from society because of
his own exposure to Rift Energy, leaving him partially mutated, but still able
to retain his humanity. Graves is drawn back to his home settlement to face a
mysterious outlaw and his war band of Outcast warriors.
Starhawk provides fast paced third-person shooter action set in this lawless
frontier of space, allowing players to instantly alter the battlefield by
calling down offensive and defensive structures in real-time from an orbiting
drop ship, all while blasting away at enemies in the middle of huge
single-player or multi-player firefights.
