Into the Depths of Hell
Into the Depths of Hell is a FreeSpace 2 campaign that follows the route of the GTD Eternity and its attempt to return to GTVA-controlled space.
You begin as a pilot in the SOC wing named 'The Angry Angels'. You fly through various missions, fending off the Shivans and protecting various ships. However, as the destroyer is en route to Capella, the scout team comes across two Vasudan warships claiming that the Capella-Vega jump node has some sort of 'subspace barrier' that is blocking subspace travel between the nodes. So begins the story of the Exile Fleet.
Along the way, they will meet the NTF, the remains of the Hammer of Light and even a new species. As a player, you will take part in the destruction of a new Shivan superdestroyer, Shivan installations and even bombers with beam turrets. You will fight within subspace, back in the Nebula and even within the material ring of a black hole...
A must-have campaign featuring a long, drawn-out story. Each mission is imaginative and adds to the overall surreal atmosphere. Features a great many mods. Chapters 1 - 4 currently released, with Chapter 5 partway released.
ITDOH is, from a standpoint of pure playing, not the best campaign ever made. It does have a VERY good story, however, and for pure pyrotechnics it's tough to beat; while rarely succumbing to BoE Syndrome, ITDOH is pretty good about making sure you're watching the explosions even in a normal mission.
