One Fury is yours to honor. Bridge the heavens to enemy islands and annihilate the opposition. Capture and sacrifice their High Priests to gain Knowledge from your patron Fury. Harness the power of the elements...and rule the skies.
    It's really different out here.

    Power Through Sacrifice
    Play as Rain, Wind and Thunder. Capture and sacrifice enemy High Priests to gain favor with your patron Fury, and be granted the sacred Knowledge to increase your island's military strength--and rule the heavens.
