Nerdluster Writes: Oblivion is set in a not to far flung science fiction future of 2077 where humanity has been struggling to survive after doing battle with an invading alien force. 60 years ago the Scavengers or "Scavs" entered our atmosphere after destroying our moon. In the days following the loss of our eternal satellite earthquakes, tsunamis and flooding claimed a significant portion of Earth's population. We fought back with our most powerful weapons and eventually won the war. Unfortunately with the loss of our moon and the nuclear battle with the Scavs our planet was permanently damaged.
