The game is set 500 years in the future, where the planet Earth people know has been ruined by centuries of war, neglect and abuse. The mankind left it behind and started colonizing the solar system, until they realized that the sun is dying.

Sol: Exodus includes a number of single-player missions that feature intense action. Players will pilot a multi-purpose tactical fighter with complement of weapons, battling their enemies across the solar system.
