Shattered Skies raises open-world sandbox looter-shooter style games to the next level. Step into a massive experience set in a world where all hell has broken loose.
A comet impact has shattered the moon into countless pieces which were pulled down by earth's gravity along with fragments of the comet itself, resulting in thousands of meteoric impacts.
Areas that meteor shards landed have brought strange crystal growth formations all over the world and remaining humans are just now discovering how to harness this great crystal energy, granted they can survive the monsters lurking in a dense fog near the crystals.
We keep it simple — one time purchase. No microtransactions, no season passes. We want you to enjoy the game without feeling pressured to buy boosts or items to stay competitive. Items, cosmetics and character advancement in Shattered Skies can only be obtained by earning it through good old fashioned gameplay.
Player integrity is a huge part of the game and cheats simply make it no fun. Shattered Skies uses a state-of-the-art Anticheat system developed specifically for the needs of our player base because we know dealing with cheaters is one of the most important parts of running a stable MMO.

Step into one of the Faction Controlled Dominion Outposts – highly secured research bases tucked away from the dangers of high populated areas. While you’re inside an Outpost you can access your Global Vault – a persistent Storage Chest for you to permanently store your items. Inside the outposts you cannot use your weapons and this is considered a non-combat area.
Players are encouraged to trade with others, interact with Merchants Guild vendor NPCs, gear up, relax with your friends or find groups to go exploring the world of Shattered Skies.
If you need a place to quickly access your Global Vault outside the safety of an Outpost, use one of many Hideouts – small bases controlled by the Brotherhood of Chaos faction. These Hideouts are more conveniently located around the map but do not offer the no-combat safety of Dominion Outposts. They can be fortified with barricades and must be controlled by force to ensure safe banking.
