There's something different! You can't quite put your trigger finger on it. Your old pals are looking rather peaked, maybe even sickly. What the heck possessed them to climb into those coffins? Hmmm. Ah, well. Nothing a bit of supplementary lead won't cure... lead to the head, and put 'em to bed. Night-night, fellow Chosen. Poisonous dreams.
"Walk through the door doors, and walk forwad toward the Life Seed. You'll now have to face down the undead Chosen. There's plenty of items laying around to help you out, but you might want to save the Willpower power-up until after you kill all three of them. That way you can start the next level with an extra advantage. When you defeat all three, a hole will open up in the center of the Arena. Grab the Willpower if you haven't already used it, and jump in to end the level."--Baytor's Guide
Caleb explores the outside of a large circular amphitheater/temple, searching for a way in. After pulling some levers, a door finally opens. He enters a battle arena where three coffins stand upright in the center. The coffins open, revealing the Undead Chosen. The emerge and float above the arena. In three harmonized voices, they speak.
ANCIENT ONE: INSECT, WE ARE THE ANCIENT ONE. BOW DOWN BEFORE US.
ANCIENT ONE: YOU ARE ALL THAT STANDS BETWEEN US AND THE DOMINION? PATHETIC.
CALEB: Oh, you're gonna hurt my feelings.
ANCIENT ONE: ALL THAT IS WILL NO LONGER BE. ALL THAT WAS HAS NEVER BEEN. ALL THAT WAS TO COME... UH, UM, UH...
ANCIENT ONE: ALL THAT WAS TO COME WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
CALEB: Enough talk, let's fight.
The Undead Chosen descend. Caleb fights them one after the other. First Ishmael, who has the Orb, along with the magic ability to heal. Then Ophelia, armed with a Tesla Cannon and Sniper Rifle. Finally, Gabriella, armed with a Napalm Launcher and Vulcan Cannon.
After they are defeated, a hole in the center of the arena opens up. Caleb descends into a cavern.
