Trailer & DLC

Hi everyone,

I wanted to let everyone know that we're continuing to add content and updates for the fans of Advent Rising.

The store page on Steam will include a pre-launch trailer that we found in the archives for everyone to enjoy and to get excited once more about the franchise's potential.

Within the next couple of days, you'll receive notification that we've also added two DLC packs, covering both the soundtrack for the game as well as the comic book series (six issues).

Both will be free of charge for anyone that currently owns or will purchase the game in the future. They'll also be available for purchase separately from the game.

We have a lot of exciting things in store and I can't wait to share it with everyone.

Intro and update

Hi Everyone,

My name is Ryan and I’m an Associate Producer here at Majesco. I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself and share some news with the community.

We first launched Advent Rising in 2005 and to this day we’re constantly amazed and humbled by the dedication and love shown to the game by fans. Even here at Majesco, Advent Rising holds a special place in our hearts. While we don’t have any new titles to announce at this time, I’m pleased and excited to announce that we have various updates planned for the original game, starting with an update to make the experience more enjoyable on modern systems.

We’ll have more details on the first update very soon. Until then, we’d love to hear from the community, what would you like to see from these updates and Majesco moving forward?

“...has a lot to offer in terms of gameplay, story, and sound...it brings original ideas and a good dose of personality to a genre that often focuses too much on just shooting people in the face.”

About This Game

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.
Some claim they are the messiah. Others believe they exist only in the imaginations of the young. The Seekers, however, know Humans exist and believe they are an enemy that must be destroyed. Under the guise of benevolent explorers, Seekers comb the universe and eradicate any Human colonies they find. Until now.
Working with award-winning science fiction author Orson Scott Card, GlyphX Games has created a gripping storyline that will thrust gamers into an incredible intergalactic saga.
The Advent of Humanity Begins...
