Lets discuss theories on what the story might be. First we should go over what we know. What we know so far:We live in a post-apocalyptic worldSome civilization (we don't know if it's all of humanity) lives inside a wall that protects them.Outside those walls is a world filled with dangerous creaturesWe are called Freelancers, who take on work for payment.So those are the basics. How did the world get like this? Maybe a virus wiped most of mankind out and normal creatures evolved into large, terrifying creatures. Or maybe a virus made the creatures mutate and forced mankind to retreat into the so called Hub / wall-protected area. The technology (exosuits, etc) is fairly advanced, so I'm assuming all this happened in the future. During the gameplay video we didn't see any standing standing structures from the old world, which is interesting. Anyone else have some thoughts/theories?
