Advent Rising is the first in an epic trilogy of action/adventure games, offering precise, refined play-dynamics with action-packed adventure and style, wrapped in a visually imaginative universe. A common legend pervades the galaxy -- that of a powerful, highly intelligent ancient race that will one day deliver the universe. They are known as "Humans"; Many religious and philosophical views have developed around these legends, but a group called the Seekers knows that Humans are real. They consider Humans an enemy, and under the guise of peaceful exploration they've travelled the cosmos destroying human colonies. Until now.
