Written to run parallel to the storyline of the Advent Trilogy, Advent Shadow takes players on an all-new, high-intensity portable experience designed specifically for the PSP.
Advent Shadow chronicles the gripping story of Marin Steel, a mercenary pilot thrust into a saga of intergalactic proportions. We first encounter Marin in the midst of extracting herself from a "hostile negotiation." Things quickly go from bad to worse as Marin's negotiations are interrupted by a planetary invasion—an invasion led by monstrous aliens bent on human genocide. In her efforts to escape the dying world, she is thrown together with young Gideon Wyeth, the unlikely hero of Advent Rising , the first game released from the Advent Trilogy. Together they find themselves swept up in a massive struggle against dire forces bent on the destruction of humanity. Not until Marin begins to discover the latent power dormant within her can she become that which these dark beings fear the most . . .
The Advent Trilogy Storyline:
In Advent Rising, a common legend pervades the galaxy—that of a powerful, highly intelligent ancient race that will one day deliver the universe. They are known simply as Humans.
Some claim them to be the messiah, believing they will one day come to deliver the universe into harmony. Some simply see them as a symbol for eternal hope. Others see them as purely fantastical creatures existing only in the imaginations and storybooks of the young.
The Seekers, however, know that Humans truly do exist and see them as an enemy that must be destroyed. Under the guise of benevolent explorers they comb the universe and eradicate any Human colonies they find. Until now.
Prepare to learn what it means to be truly Human.
