Celestial hunter Orion has fallen from his place in the stars. Bow in hand, players guide him through a desolate, ruin-strewn Earth, collecting the scattered stars of his constellation and gaining new combat and movement abilities along the way. The game’s 3D, open-world design encourages exploration, but watch out for the beings of darkness lurking across the land.
ÆON is based on real Greek mythology. According to myth, during Orion’s time hunting with the goddess Artemis, he boasted that he could kill every living thing on Earth, leading Gaia (Mother Earth) to send an enormous scorpion (the constellation Scorpio) to kill him, after which he was placed in the stars. The villain in ÆON, Erebus, is one of the first five beings in existence according to Greek myth, and is considered the personification of darkness, born of chaos.
