Following the fall of the Titans, Zeus' grandmother, the earth mother Gaia, is angry. Angry at her grandson and his new order of gods. Zeus betrayed her, sending her children, the Cyclopes and the Hundred handed, to Tartarus. Now she finds that there is no place for her in Zeus’ new regime and she seethes, forgotten and alone.
In revenge, she gives birth to a new breed of god: The Earthborn. Hideous creatures, gargantuan in size and nigh-on invincible. Amongst the hordes is Typhon, a creature more terrible and powerful than any other. A creature even greater than the King of the Gods.
With his creation, Gaia foresees Zeus’ doom. Zeus has no choice but to call on old allies, the Titans Prometheus and Metis, whom he once called companions and friends. Together they must face the Earthborn or the gods and humans alike will be wiped from the face of the Earth. A new world order is rising, prepared to destroy all who have come before.
