THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY
From the shadow of Jupiter, Taskforce Bravo approaches Io. Spaceships release a bombardment of nuclear warheads triggering a response of plasma bolts from the planetary defenses. Landing craft carrying the 124th Special Forces battalion make their final descent. Dust rises, hatches blow, and a thousand marines break out. Flying at one hundred kilometres per hour, these soldiers skim the surface firing laser and particle weapons as they approach the hardened defenses surrounding the European colony complex. Solar Marine is a science fiction game simulating ground combat in the future. Players are given troops armed with various weapons that may be developed in the future and fight on the various landscapes in the Solar System.
