Premise

Brave New World is the geopolitical story of the near future, when major national powers have formed into SuperNations and large corporations run rampant.

With global crises on the rise, from humanitarian disasters to the ethical dilemmas of technological advancement, these SuperNations vie for power, resources, and the ultimate role in the histories - to be the first to colonise Mars.

With complex and competing political agendas, teams work with (and against) one another to keep the future of humanity safe and prosperous.
