Game Description

In this epic, 3rd-person sci-fi adventure inspired by author Orson Scott Card, you'll travel the galaxy amidst Seekers, Aurelians, and Humans. The first in a trilogy of games, Advent Rising offers up a powerful array of weapons including pistols, blasters, rifles, rocket launchers, and alien-created weapon like microwave guns. Additional superhuman powers like energy blasts, levitation, and energy shields develop as the game progresses, keeping things even more interesting. Visually astounding, Advent Rising was based on the Unreal warfare engine integrated with the Karma physics engine. Downloadable content will be available. The soundtrack features the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Los Angeles Orchestra.
