An example of every faction in the game.


The use of Factions is to sort the vast amount of units into categories that match other units with their cosmetics, weapons, and abilities. They are mostly themed around cultures and eras in early human history. They also serve as a way to theme sections of the Introduction campaign. Each faction has 7 units. (Except the Secret which has 39 and the legacy faction which has 16)

There are currently 14 factions officially in the Full Version. All Factions have maps to go with the theme of the faction and for the faction's campaign levels.

Current Factions (14)

There are currently 14 factions that players have access to in the Full Version.

Scrapped Factions (5)

These factions have been scrapped, with no apparent news or relevancy to the final game at this time.

Removed Factions (3)

These factions have been removed from the game entirely. The fate of these factions as a whole are not known. There has been no recorded mention of them by Landfall on these factions making a potential return.


  • Era and Faction are most commonly used to mean the same thing in TABS, although Faction is the official name. It could also be said that an "Era" is a generation of people, whilst a "Faction" is another term for a tribe or group of people.
  • In the Pre-Alpha, there were no factions. This is because there were only 20 units that were in the game at that time to be put into factions.
