The year is 2109 and humans are on the brink of extinction. Ten years ago they unearthed three obelisks from Mars and set loose upon the Earth the tide of Black, the hunger of the Never Living. One of the last bastions of humanity is the Mars colony built atop the very ruins that those relics were found within. Humans struggle against the teeming, unliving masses, the might of The Never Living and each other. Aries-II is a place where the heroes have fallen and only time will answer the question, 'will humanity survive?'. Will you be the last hope of humanity, or will you be another conduit of dark energy flowing from the Unliving Gods?
