It’s the year 20XX; military conflict between the League of Nations and UNITA run rampant across the globe, prompting small scale wars to break out in various regions. In order to combat UNITA’s biochemical modification of humans, the League of Nations secretly developed the NRC: Insectoid Robots with frightening intelligence and a brimming consciousness, which sooner than not went rogue and became its own faction in this now-three-way war. The human world is now at stake, and a battle for survival and supremacy is being waged.
*M.A.R.S. is not the most F2P-friendly of games. It features time-limited rental (through earned or purchased game credits) for virtually every cosmetic, weapon and item in the game including those necessary for PVE, with a gacha (randomized) system for the majority of permanent unlocks. The grind required to advance characters and gears is long and tedious unless you pay. That said, the game offers much enjoyable content for free. Many players hate the freemium model but still enjoy the game to some extent.
