Here's a snippet from the introductory chapter, to give a taste of the feel of the game's setting:
For five thousand years, the secret society known as Covenant prepared for the apocalypse. Insinuating itself into every government, bureaucracy and religion. Preparing for a day it knew would come. Armageddon.
On January 1st 2000, they awaited the sign that would herald the end of the world. It didn't arrive. Soon the society that had manipulated governments, built ideologies and overthrown religions was in turmoil. It split into a whirlwind of warring factions and conflicting opinions. Why had prophecies failed, where before they had succeeded? Who was to blame? What does the future really hold?
