- "Six thousand years ago, a fierce warrior known as the Scorpion King led a great army on a campaign to unite the known world. Though they fought well, the Scorpion King and his army were defeated by the Sumerians and driven deep into Ahm Shere, the sacred desert. On death's door, the Scorpion King made a pact with the desert god Anubis. If Anubis would let him live to conquer his enemies, he would surrender to Anubis his immortal soul. The next year, the Scorpion King stormed northward with the Army of Anubis. No power on Earth could stop the supernatural warriors, and the Sumerians were crushed before them. But the Scorpion King's moment of victory was also his last. As the Army of Anubis was returned once again to oblivion, the soul of the Scorpion King was banished to the Underworld."
- "Though thousands of years have passed since then, history has a way of repeating itself. According to the calendar of the ancients, the year of the scorpion is once again upon us. Though my old friends Rick and Evy - and now their son Alex - think only to spend their days in pursuit of knowledge and treasure, they will soon find themselves on the path of danger once more. Stumbling through the ruins of the ancient past, they uncover an accursed treasure that leads them to their destined place in the ultimate battle between good and evil... for the mummy returns!"
- This and Karnak are the only levels to never share a character.
