After humans have colonized the solar system, a mysterious shard from space arrives, killing or warping everything around it — until our civilization is all but wiped out. Thousands of years later, the only humans left on Earth survive in five mega-cities or roam the post-apocalyptic wasteland in combative tribes. Black Sea Studios' upcoming "next gen" real-time strategy game, Worldshift, features cooperative gameplay, thousands of powerful artifacts, customizable factions and a twisted scifi setting. Check out this gallery of mind-blowing screenshots and weird concept art.

There's no release date set (they're still in open beta), but you can check out the recently released demo of the game at the Worldshift official site. Images by: Black Sea Studios.
