The TimeSplitters series Story mode spans 548 years from 1853 to 2401, and features 32 unique levels, set in 25 different locations across the world and outer space. TimeSplitters 2 has the largest time-span, reaching to both ends of the timeline, while TimeSplitters Future Perfect spans 477 years from 1924 to 2401.

The original TimeSplitters was engineered to span exactly 100 years from 1935 to 2035, with systematic gaps between each level. It should be noted that some of the futuristic levels in the game propose unrealistic technologies and inconsistencies with the later games; this does not necessarily mean they should be considered as non-canon, or that different dates should be used (suggested dates are mentioned below). The premise of the TimeSplitters series is the altering of human history via Time Travel, so that the futuristic levels (or all levels) of the original TimeSplitters may be depicting events within an altered timeline, which is later corrected.

There's been a lot of UFO activity in the Gamma sector - the Academy has traced their telemetry to Planet X.

The Ozor and Meezor Mox have been battling to gain control of the planet for some time now and we suspect that factions are constructing ships and launching them from a subterranean base.

Wing Commander Hank Nova's patrol has engaged the alien ships just inside the planet's atmosphere.

Perhaps it's time to take a trip down to the surface and see what you can find out.

This will be a tricky mission, but the fighting between the Mox can be used to your advantage. Remember the Ozor and Meezor hate each other more than they hate you!

Don't be afraid to fight for one side or the other as long as it helps you get closer to the base!

After the Machine Wars the mighty foundries and production lines finally fell silent...except for one!

UltraNet sources have revealed that the Dark Machinist Child has activated a power node network and seeks to build a robot army to exact his revenge.

Neutralize his factory before he can reawaken a dreadful conflict.

Once you have accessed the inner processing area, you should proceed immediately with destroying the individual energy nodes. These nodes are extremely robust, and cannot be damaged using conventional firearms.

However, the factory may still contain a small number of ElectroTools - portable generators that were used in the construction of the factory itself - which may be capable of overloading the nodes using a sustained beam of electricity.

Once the nodes have been disabled and the production lines finally silenced, your last objective should be to find the Dark Machinist Child and ensure he is stopped for good.
