  • Rogue aliens launch a surprise attack on Earth, destroying cities, destroying world governments and unleashing a deadly virus.

  • Earth is pulled out of its orbit, sending it on a collision course with the sun and triggering massive hurricanes, sandstorms and a deadly heatwave.

  • For the first time in human history, a volcanic hyper eruption blows through the surface of the Earth. Explosive shock waves tear apart buildings, molten rock slam into cities, and a deafening sound circles the globe. A bad day for Planet Earth gets worse as volcanic gas blocks out sunlight, food chains collapse, and epic famine threatens the very future of mankind.
