Within the Cosmos is a single-player first-person sci-fi RPG. The year is 2278, and humanity is on the verge of extinction. You were sent there to preserve the human race, as they are fighting a war they will not win. You are one of 500 people who work for UESA (United Earth Space Agency) who were put in cryogenic sleep and sent to the planet 'Berith II'. A planet that is tucked away in the Adallio star system, a system that is hidden, and far from the war. However, once you arrive, you and your crew come under attack by an unknown enemy, and it is up to you to figure out who is behind the attack, and why. Explore multiple hand-crafted planets in the Adallio star system. As you try to unwrap the mystery that has befallen you and your crew mates, you will make choices which will affect the way the story develops; along with how your companions and others perceive you, and end game scenarios. Shoot through enemies using a wide variety of weapons, approach peacefully to try and extract information through dialogue, or take the stealth approach and sneak behind them. There are always choices, and multiple approaches. Obtain modules which will allow you to enhance your spacesuit in various ways; giving you multiple new abilities you can use in and out of battle. Battle through objective-based waves of enemies in a completely separate game mode 'SWARM'.
