Background[edit | edit source]

The remains of Hadley Science Station now orbit the Moon. The station contains stockpiles of high-purity nuclear fuel that could sustain the conflict for years. Determined to cut the MMC's fuel supply, the ISA launches a mission to confiscate the supplies or destroy them.

In Flipside players fight on both sides of a broken disc of Moon rock, moving between the two through cracks and fractures in the level. As players move from one side to the other, up becomes down. Teams must control both sides to win.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The Flipside level contains an object called the "Piece of History". This object was first shown in a screenshot released on July 20 2009, the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landings. The Piece of History is a small free floating rock with an astronaut's footprint and a small commemorative plaque on one side.

The footprint is modelled after a famous image from the Apollo 11 mission, while the plaque is reproduced from the design used for a small metal plate attached to one of the legs of the Apollo 11 Eagle lander. Also in the film "Apollo 13 when the spacecraft is going behind the moon, one of the astronauts says "So long Earth, Catch you on the flipside"
