Advent Rising is a 3rd person, action/adventure game presented in a stunning cinematic format that delivers an unprecedented variety of addictive game play experiences. Built on the Unreal Warfare Engine, it offers precise, refined play-dynamics with action-packed adventure and style, wrapped in a visually imaginative universe. Advent Rising is akin to a fast-paced action movie where the player is swept up in a continuously evolving series of sequences and events.

In Advent, a common legend pervades the galaxy—that of a powerful, ancient race that will one day unite the universe. Millions of cultures from vastly distant worlds revere and hallow these mythological beings, these humans.

The Seekers alone do not share these legends, for they know the truth—humans exist. Threatened by the potential power of these humans, the Seekers are doing all they can to eradicate them. Under the guise of benevolent explorers they spread methodically throughout the galaxy, destroying any human society they unearth. As Gideon Wyeth, a remnant of the last human outpost, you are about to discover the incredible powers that lay dormant within you—the powers the Seekers are so desperate to suppress.
