You hear rather than see the others around you shift, following your orders. You flinched as you felt a huge blast of heat next to you, the creature Alessa had been firing at exploding into a mess of molten flesh and organs.
You rip your blade free and dive forward, rolling as you hit the ground. You hear the whine of the twin's jumppacks as they rocketed overhead, one of them, Coral, pitching a sphere larger than your fist into the hole. The ground below you shuddered violently, rock and debris flying this way and that as the explosion tore the hole apart.
The centepedes were still coming, their armored bodies riddled with cracks from the shockwave.
You shook your head, jumping at your next target, your blade sinking deeply into its flesh. The daemon screamed, lashing down at you as you summoned your power. It was too late though, your power frying it from the inside out, even as it retaliated.
Your victory was short lived however as another centipede skittered up next to you with astounding speed, lashing forward for the kill, its jaws dripping with foaming poison.
You rip your blade free to defend yourself when something huge, something black, barreled into the side of the daemon, tackling it and rolling some distance away.
A loud crunch drew your attention as another black mass hurtled into another daemon, more of them appearing every second.
The Legion of the Damned.
As much as you would like to relax, there will be time for such pleasantries later. More hive daemons and centipedes were swarming in, easily outnumbering your forces. To make matters worse, chitinous appendages had begun erupting from the ground nearby, demolishing structures as they rapidly spread.
