GearStorm is set in the year 2185 when humans and their constant wars have devastated the earth and turned it into a wasteland. In a desperate moment, they released the Phage, a biological weapon that can turn any human into a mindless violent creature. The Plage keeps spreading further and further until no one and nothing can stop it anymore.
Having no other choice, the remainings retreat into bunkers, fortresses, and walled cities to survive. At this point, there seems to be no hope left for people on Earth anymore, unless they can find another planet to live. Actually, there is one tiny chance. NASA has found a world that has the necessities for humans to survive using their space telescope. But the planet is light-years away from Earth so probes with the intelligent of the smartest people on Earth are sent there to build a base and protect the fate of humanity. You are one of those probes.
