From the Manufacturer
Scrapland has an extremely unique free-form style of play that capitalizes on the success of games like GTA3, yet takes the action one step further. --Executive Producer American McGee
SCRAPLAND is a third-person action-adventure game set in a stunningly beautiful and futuristic world occupied by an amazing array of robotic characters. The play experience is driven by a solidly engaging, sometimes humorous adventure narrative. The game mechanic combines proven GTA3 style emergent action with an immersive storyline, diversity of player actions, and complete freedom of movement through the world. Throughout the game the player can: transform into any of 15 character types inheriting unique abilities, build and pilot ships with hundreds of permutations, engage in explosive combat, participate in life-on-the-line races, and freely explore a truly dynamic and living world.
A spectacular science fiction world: Scrapland presents the player with one of the most highly detailed and visually stunning video game worlds ever seen. From the luminous skyscrapers of Downtown to the treacherous caverns of the Scrapyard, this is world that begs to be explored.
Combat and racing with customizable gunships: Steal, borrow, build, and fly any and every type of space ship you can imagine. Literally hundreds of different varieties of ships are at your disposal in the world of Scrapland. Outfit your ship with the most powerful engines, most devastating weapons, and then test it in life-or-death combat against other pilots.
Dynamic character switching: Scrapland offers unparalleled freedom to play however, and as whomever, you wish. Instantly and seamlessly switch between over a dozen character types, automatically inheriting new abilities. Gain unfettered access to off-limit areas, deceive foes, and employ unique powers at the click of a button.
Multiplayer mayhem: Few games deliver such a spectacular single player experience and integrate hardcore multiplayer mayhem like Scrapland. Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and other multiplayer modes allow you to import ships built in single player to online arenas.
