Auto Assault was a 3D MMO from NetDevil and NCSoft. Originally released in 2006, most of Auto Assault's gameplay took place in a vehicle, which served as one's avatar for most of the game, except for time spent in towns. Taking its inspiration from sources such as the Mad Max films and Greek mythology, the game's post-apocalyptic setting was the backdrop for a story that took place after an indirect attack by aliens that left Earth uninhabitable and forced humanity underground. Trapped by circumstances, this led to research in order to combat the problem. Players could choose to belong to one of three races - Humans, Mutants, or Biomeks. Each race viewed the others negatively in some form, while each race also got certain advantages and classes unique to them.
