Humanity has moved on after the Benson Disaster. In the decades following the loss of the space station along with almost its entire crew a new kind of life has been forged out even further into the Veil Nebula aboard a new type of habitat: The Barringer. But a connection back to Jake Dixon, the man who sacrificed everything to stop a nameless horror reaching Earth, now pulls back those few survivors and an all-new crew to face fresh monsters and familiar terror.
From Earth to the cold vacuum of space light years away, from the fragile artificial environment of space stations to the frozen terror of a dead planet… brace yourself. Mankind believes it has tamed the organism freed from the dark years ago. Survivors believe they have seen the last of that horror and those that died stopping it. What they don’t know is that they’re in John Carpenter’s universe and all bets are off.
The tendrils are back! The heroics are bigger! The monsters are nastier! And the ride is far from over as the VORTEX reopens.
