It starts with a ripple.
Urban Mammoth have released some teasers about the new faction for Urban war and some background fiction to accompany it with more to be released every week in the run up.
This adds more backgound to the world city of Iskandria. I have always thought that background is very important in game systems to deliver the right setting and mood.
The first chapter is here on their website
Chapter 11: Skies of Fire
2844.09.03 VST - The First New Man
I see the coming of those you believe will threaten your so-called existence, but you know not your nemesis. Just when you believe you have overcome your trials, then you will see and embrace your destruction. A tomb shall suffice, for those for whom all the galaxy was insufficient. I care not for your naive machinations, for they are as nothing compared to the vision of the future: our future, my future, the future of the New Man.
Iskander, Reflections (Holorec MCCCLIX bio, case a)
there is also sneaky 3D renders of the upcoming faction, So far i really like the sculpts, they have a very macedonian feel. i'm really looking forward to seeing them in the metal and im wondering what colour scheme they will go for.
The 3d sculpts are on their facebook page
