Fallen Nation: Downfall
The end has come.
Ash and eight other survivors find themselves in a new world completely different from the lie they have lived their whole lives. On a fight for survival, and the truth, Ash begins to uncover the vast mystery behind the city, and the Sovereign Supreme's plan at work through it all. Trust dissolves among companions, and tensions grow to the breaking point as lies are slowly chipped away, revealing the unfathomable truth beneath.
The lives of everyone Ash cares about, and the entire world, are at stake. The end is fast approaching, and the final plays of the game will determine the future of humanity.
