In preparation for the MODDB awards, we’ve been gathering lots of new media ready for everybody to view. One of the things that I’ve always had difficulty was explaining the setting and back-story of the mod. Usually when I try to quickly formulate a synopsis on the spot, it makes the mod sound not very exciting. So because of this, the first round of media for The Rising is going to be an “Intro” trailer explaining what’s going on. I hope that once everybody knows what is happening story-wise, they’ll appreciate the upcoming media assets more.
Also, don't forget to vote for us. Remember during this voting period you can vote for as many mods as you want.
Just as mankind is on the brink of extinction from a deadly pandemic, Extraterrestrials establish contact and offer a "cure" (an organism from their home planet). Although the majority of the population is afflicted by the raging virus and have no other option, a small minority immune to the virus resist the organism. Due to Mans inability to coexist, a social division emerges masking the presence of this hostile organism.
