The colony was first established in 2045. Thanks to its rich natural resources, it was a great place to trade and settle. Later, when resources began to shrink, the colony became an assemblage of slums.
Sometime following the Titan Station Incident in 2511, Isaac Clarke and Ellie Langford came to live in the Earthrise Apartments in the city. In 2514, the colony came under siege by the Circle, a militarized faction of the Church of Unitology. The Circle managed to destroy the Marker Shroud building housing the Luna Marker located in the heart of the city and massacred most of the New Horizons Security Force. It's activation triggered a Necromorph outbreak that spread across the colony. Isaac fought his way through the colony's former inhabitants and Unitologist extremists to escape on the USM Eudora. The colony was possibly overran and destroyed in the outbreak.
