2023 – After the wars between enemy nations had gradually come to an end at the beginning of the 21 century, somebody had to make sure the supply of senseless violence didn't stop altogether. The solution: Hive Rise! The TV show that features bored millionaires, car tinkerers and retired generals competing in a paramilitary arms race.

On the huge battlefield somewhere in the desert sand the enemy camps lie neatly lined up. From there the teams march out with highly specialized mercenaries and the latest military equipment to give each other hell.
