Pacific Rim Timeline
REMEMBER THE PAST TO PROTECT THE FUTURE - Jaeger pilots have stood between us and the apocalypse for 21 years. Look back at our history to honor the heroes who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the survival of humanity.
AUGUST 10TH, 2013 - THE ATTACK THAT CHANGED THE WORLDHumanity awakes to a new evolution as Trespasser, the first known Kaiju, makes landfall in San Francisco. After a 6-day assault the Kaiju Wars had begun, and we too would have to evolve to survive the monsters at our door.
SEPTEMBER 6TH, 2014 – A NEW DAWN FOR HUMANITYWe stand tall. 21 ‘warrior states’ of the Pacific Rim form an international coalition: the Pan Pacific Defense Corps, a global force watching the oceans for transdimensional attack.
SEPTEMBER 15TH, 2014 - TO FIGHT MONSTERS, WE BECAME MONSTERSAs all existing defensive arsenals fail, we need new thinking and new thinkers. The first prototype mech goes into active development, and the Jaeger program is born.
APRIL 23, 2015 - BRAWLER YUKON MAKES HISTORYAfter a year of unsuccessful tests, Brawler Yukon destroys the Kaiju codenamed Karloff in Vancouver. The first successful Jaeger kill of a Kaiju in the field, it is a historic moment that ushers in a defense revolution around the world.
2021-2025 - HUMAN DOWNFALLIn 2021, we learned that each new Kaiju had learned and adapted from its slain predecessors, attacking with deadlier force than ever before. Many brave Jaeger pilots fall as the exponential threat of the Breach continues to rise.
JANUARY 12TH, 2025 - REMEMBER PENTECOST- As the fleet is decimated and civilians run for their lives, PPDC Marshal Stacker Pentecost recruits ‘the Resistance’: a hail mary team ready to mount one last stand against the Kaiju. Powered by human courage, the last Jaegers standing succeed in destroying the breach, thanks to the brave sacrifice of Marshal Pentecost himself.
2035 - THE JAEGER UPRISINGIt’s been ten years since The Battle of the Breach and the oceans are still, but restless. Vindicated by the victory at the Breach, the Jaeger program has evolved into the most powerful global defense force in human history. The PPDC now calls upon the best and brightest to rise up and become the next generation of heroes. When the Kaiju threat returns, we will be ready.
