An extraplanar threat looms over our unsuspecting planet. Against the invasion, we have united as EMERGENT: a team of strategists, activists, and researchers fighting to stay ahead of the alien menace.
Together we can Save This World.
EMERGENT is a cooperative online role-playing and strategy game where you work together with players across America to protect the Earth from aliens.

CHOOSE YOUR DIVISION
Xeno-Entity Response Operations. A coalition of pragmatic veterans, UFO believers, and conspiracy diehards. Vindicated by the arrival of the enemy, they serve as EMERGENT's core military.
An impossible ragtag of hackers, criminals, and paranormal geeks, Tangent is a force the enemy can neither understand nor expect. Tangent personnel are stylish, bombastic, and unpredictable, matching alien cunning with sheer human guile.
THE NIGHT EMBASSY
With their planet in the grip of cosmic terror, Earth's own monsters have broken their ancient secrecy. These doomed creatures stagger and bleed through cursed lives, but possess generations of experience with the invaders.
SELECT YOUR UNIT
Every EMERGENT Commander has control of a single Unit in the global campaign to save the Earth. You'll choose a Unit from the pool available to your Division and use that Unit to carry out direct assaults, rescue operations, covert reconnaissance, and more -- all alongside the other Commanders who help defend your Region.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR COMMANDER
As you execute operations, your Commander will gain valuable knowledge and develop their skillset. Commander specialties apply in the field no matter the Unit they control. Combine your Commander's unique skills and talents with your Unit's abilities to build your legend.
THE GLOBAL GAMEBOARD
EMERGENT is a multiplayer online roleplaying wargame, designed to simulate a two-year campaign against an occult invasion. Together, we'll tell the story of a desperate few, fighting to save the Earth from a sinister enemy. As an EMERGENT recruit, you'll join a community of players who share a single gameboard. Your creative pursuits, roleplay encounters, and tactical decisions all orbit the gameboard and help Earth stand strong against the enemy. Each month, you'll receive new opportunities to bolster your Unit, your Region, and the war effort overall.
MONTHLY OBJECTIVES CAN INCLUDE:
- Roleplay prompts for text, in-person, or remote play.
- A live-action roleplay scenario for one or more players.
- A chance to vote on an in-game decision point.
- An assignment to complete a creative project, like an after-action report or an eyewitness sketch.
- A volunteer opportunity -- helping real-Earth always helps game-Earth.
- A text-adventure game, with consequences that shape your character's story.
Complete these missions, and command your Unit on your Region's battle map, to make your stand in the war for humanity.
Our reality is under siege, Commander.
