Earth & Beyond Overview
Earth & Beyond was a sci-fi MMORPG that mixed elements of traditional RPGs and RTS with a storyline involving shifts in galactic loyalties. Players were set into a Milky Way galaxy where an uneasy peace barely held humankind’s three factions from another all out war. Players could command their own starships and engage in strategic combat and diplomacy with others, and their collective actions affected the game world. E&B holds the distinction of being the great Westwood Studios’ last game, and was canceled by EA in September 2004.
