The Future Belongs To Us sees a world that where the citizens have been stripped of all their rights and joined under a corrupt and abusive world government.
The scenarios in this new framework that gamers will have to explore are only limited by the imagination of the clever GM. With a world filled with a corrupt government, cruel gangs, pseudo-prophets, shadowy organizations and freedom fighters the possibilities of this vast world have no end.
