Project Blackout tasks players with joining one of the two factions trying to control the country of Korogese. After rising to become a global power at a meteoric rate, the massive corporations responsible for the country's success now seek to control the government and deprive the population of the right to bear arms. Aegis Inc., a powerful, highly trained, para-military group was formed by the corporations in order to create this utopian society. From the groups of civilian rebels arose the Corps, a skilled militia that holds to their rights as citizens and the upholders of the original Korogesian government. Players must take on the role of either an Aegis utopian or a civilian rebel as the struggle reaches a boiling point. Which side will stand victorious after the smoke clears? Only time will tell.
