From the announcement:
~26th century Earth —a hard place to live.
Two hundred years ago, the worlds’ rich and powerful left the planet in a mass Exodus. However, this grand plan didn’t include everyone, and society collapsed in their wake. Now, for the first time in centuries, those left behind take their first baby steps from the culling of previous generations. There’s finally hope to put an end to the death and destruction. Crops are starting to grow and populations are booming. Various factions vie for power and resources. There are valuable troves out in the Wilds for those willing to take the risks to search for them.
Welcome to the Wreck Age.
