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.

"While technological advances continue to open doors for exciting new gaming experiences, storyline remains the one element most critical in allowing the gamer to feel like an essential part of the game's outcome," said Ken Gold, Vice President of Marketing for Majesco. "The tremendous literary vision of Orson Scott Card coupled with GlyphX Games' masterful approach to graphics and game play mechanics, ensure that Advent Rising will captivate the mind and emotions of the player, while pushing the bounderies of gaming to a unprecedented new level."

"What I found most interesting about collaborating with Majesco and GlyphX on the Advent Rising project was their sincere desire to create a game in which the story served as the springboard for all the other elements," added Orson Scott Card. "Creating an engrossing story is paramount in establishing credibility with players and allows them to connect with what's happening on screen."

Players assume the role of Gideon Wyeth, a remnant of the last human outpost, on the brink of discovering the incredible powers that lay dormant within him. It is these powers the Seekers are so desperate to suppress.

Developed by GlyphX Games, Advent Rising is a third-person, intergalactic action/adventure of truly epic proportions, akin to a fast-paced action movie where the player is swept up in an ever-evolving series of sequences and events. Built on Epic Games' Unreal Warfare Engine, Advent Rising offers precise, refined play-dynamics with action-packed adventure and style, wrapped in a visually imaginative universe.
