Regardless of his decision, the future remains uncertain, the intertwined fates of two galaxies hanging by a thread. In the shadows, a malevolent being works that thread like a spider, weaving a twisted web that could mean the end of everything.
It is here where it all begins.
Where history is made.
Witness the cradle of war.
