Earthrise is Masthead Studios massively multiplayer game set after Earth's Third World War. The only survivors are on the isolated island of Enterra where an assembly of leaders and scientists had placed a colossal, self-sufficient DNA database capable of storing the genetic information of every living thing on the planet. Somehow, this speck of land escaped the full brunt of the cataclysm, although the flora and fauna underwent significant mutations. Two factions are vying for control of the rebuilding society. The corporate government stringently controls everything it can, while the rebel group Noir has sworn to oust the authoritarian order.
