The Front, a time-traveling open-world survival game where you fight against a tyrannical empire, will launch in Early Access on October 11. The Front takes place in a post-apocalyptic world littered with various mutants and rival factions. Players will battle against brutal imperial forces, thugs, and rebels while unveiling a struggle that will determine the fate of humanity. Team up with friends to explore ruins, sweep away monster colonies, build bases, set up trap towers for defense, upgrade technology to craft weapons and equipment, and pilot a wide range of ground and air vehicles, from tanks to planes, to defend your home against the Empire!

In a post-apocalyptic world, survival is key. Build bases that are unrestricted by terrain and your creative imagination. Create and implement tower defense-like traps to fend off monsters and enemy soldiers impeding on your shelter. Become self-sufficient by planting your own set of crops and cooking them to feed yourself with dozens of delicious recipes. The world is also filled with friendly faces that can be recruited to help you not only in battle but allow you to use their crafting tables to further improve your bases capabilities.
