Sydney was a metropolitan city that is the current capital of Australia and the Oceanic District. Before the Human-Android War the city was one of the biggest and had reached it's all-time high population with over 5.5 million people, housing multiple suburbs and outlying burrows.

Human-Android WarEdit

On 26 June, 2015, the Android Covenant began it's genocidal campaign against the human race by attacking major cities all over the world. Sydney became a massive battlefield like many other major cities, with the Australian Defence Force trying to fight off the invading androids, Operation: HAMMERDOWN was put into immediate effect, with the objective to evacuate the senate and the Prime Minister John Bishop to a safe location. However the androids moved quick in taking out all the leaders and possible leaders of Australia, this included the Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, Governor General, all of the cabinet and high ranking military officials.

A day after the initial attack, Sydney had fallen, the remaining Australian forces had either been pushed or fallen back into the surrounding areas. However within the underground of the city there were a low number of civilians who lived in the shadows hiding from the androids, some chose to try and fight them once they had see they began to turn Sydney into one of their newest hubs, but all attempts by civilians had failed.

On 4th July 2015, the androids had turned Sydney into the first major Hub, a extremely dangerous zone for humans. Despite Sydney becoming a hub there were a very low number of humans still living in the area that androids had not discovered.

As a HubEdit

With Sydney now used as a main Communications and Facilitation hub for the Oceanic District, it was mostly untouched by humans or resistance members alike. Sometime during 2016 to 2035, the environment changed, with the entire area of the Northern Beaches, including Sydney and it's outlying burrows, became an almost urban desert. In some cases, Androids would avoid patrolling and defence of the hub itself due to the constant dust storms and high winds.

In 2035, Blackstone lead the first one-man assault against the main hub itself. Infiltrating and destroying the communications array, the city was then open to a full on assault by the Preachers. Leading them alongside Blackstone was Command Sergeant Delta, a former Australian special forces commando. The city was eventually taken back, and put under Preacher jurisdiction.


Once the Human-Android War came to an end, the newly elected Governor General Delta and the remaining Australian people had begun to rebuild and repopulate the city and bring it to it's former glory in Blackstone's honor.
