Spacefront is a custom video game created by Daniel Smith. Spacefront continues no existing video game/novel/film, and instead comes straight from the mind of Daniel Smith. It does, however, use the basic traits of Tom Clancy's Future Soldier and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, in terms of a Russian ultranationalist force that violently takes power and takes the fight to space.
In the year 2089, a Russian man named Vladimir Markhov assembled an ultranationalist group whose purpose was to revert the Democratic Russia back into a Communist nation. In the starting years, the group was little more than a thorn in the Russian government's side. But in 2094, the group siezed the Russian president's palace, and Markhov personally killed the president. By 2096, Russia had been completely transformed into a Communist nation.
Of course, the United States and NATO wouldn't let this go untouched. Throughout the years, the U.S. and NATO closely watched the activity going on. They observed multiple space shuttle launches, each of them carrying sections of a gigantic space station that the Russians planned to use as the first step to an invasion of the United States (but at that time the U.S. didn't know what its intended use was for). In 2095, a U.S. Black Operations team was captured was Russian Spetsnaz, and the U.S. denied any connections with the team.
In 2096, Soviet Russia attacked a British oil ship as an act of war. Britian and the U.S. responded by sending in two units of soldiers. The U.S. unit arrived first. When the British unit arrived, they fired on the U.S. unit. In self-defense, the U.S. unit fired back. Detecting the chaos, Germany also sent in a squad of special forces soldiers. While flying over now-socialist France airspace, they were fired at by French anti-aircraft missiles and prompty shot down. Germany responded by deploying an invasion force consisting of 45,000 men. Japan, which had been isolated for years, unleashed chemical weapons within China. World War III has begun.
In the early months of World War III, NATO and SEATO were dissolved and Soviet Russia completed their space station, which housed dozens of nuclear missiles and electro-magnectic pulse missiles, as well as an invasion force of 2,000 men. Soviet Russia had also implanted nuclear arms within Cuba, which had sided with them. At any point, Soviet Russia could give the orders to launch the missiles. Tensions rose between the United States and Great Britian. Germany had overcome France. Japan had almost completely annihilated China and other Hmong contries in that area. To retain at least some loyalty, the U.S., Britian, Canada, Mexico, Ireland, Spain, Turkey, Czechoslovakia, and several other small European contries seaking shelter, signed the NFACW Pact (Nations for a Changed World).
In each mission of the campaign, the player will play as Jeremy "Roadkill" Westbrook, a sergeant first class in the United States Space Marines. Throughout the campaign, the player will fight alongside Kyle "Virus" Pierson, a captain, Michael "Scorch" Williams, a sergeant, and Andrew "Jayhawk" Six, a private. These four characters are protagonist characters. Other recurring protagonist characters include Michael "Burnout" Moore and Derek "Spike" Smith.
Destructible enviroments are introduced in Spacefront. In campaign mode, they are much more obtainable; when firing a rocket launcher at a brick building a large hole will appear in it. In multiplayer, however, they rarely occur. The only visible destructible enviroments are the ground and some wooden buildings.
The campaign consists of 10-15 missions.
- There are currently no known missions.
The multiplayer of Spacefront is similar to Call of Duty: Black Ops', as the player will be put on one of two teams (except on Free-For-All). There are many gamemodes, each of which have a different objective. Also, for each gamemode a different time limit and score limit is given. Abilities are also present, which allow special unique traits to be used by the player in-game. There are also Battle Points (BP), which are awarded after every match.
Ranks and ChallengesEdit
There are 50 ranks in Spacefront, each one of them requiring a certain amount of Battle Points to reach. For each rank, a different icon is given. There is also Prestige, which is basically restarting and reseting all the completed challenges. There are ten levels of Prestige, each one of them having a different icon.
Challenges can help the player in gaining rank quicker. There are five types of challenges: weapons, boot camp, operations, finishing moves, and elite. Each challenge awards a certain amount of Battle Points upon completion.
For each gamemode, including Free-For-All, the player will assigned a faction. Each faction has its own clothing appearance. Depeding on the gamemode, each faction will have a different amount of players. Each faction also has its own announcer who will occasionally announces the score and time left until the match ends.
- United States Marine Corps - The USMC will be a faction on all ground maps. Their clothing is tan and brown, and they have a backpack on their back.
- United States Marine Corps Space Marines - The USMCSP will be a faction on all space maps. Their clothing is a black and gray version of the USMC outfit.
