PROLOGUE OF THE GAME(just the prolog, we already have spoiled the zombies)

In the Year 20XX; A massive number of Nuclear weapons were dissapearing without a trace all over the world.
After a number of Investigations led by the UN’s Intelligence department,
It’s been Revealed that the culprits were a clandestine terrorist organization,
they name themselves EXILE, they used unknown methods for these operations.

Their success in stealing nuclear weapons has been hidden from public knowledge, due to the fears of mass panic by the UN, hence, it’s treated as a discrete matter with utmost secrecy.

Information on Exile Is limited, this is all we know about them:

  • They possess highly advanced military Technology
  • They have a large number of nuclear weapons to do as they please
  • They follow the leadership of Doctor Nikolai Azra (Aka. Asura), a former NASA astronaut and later DARPA chief. He dissapeared during one of his research travels to space.

He was seen as a genius by his peers in the development of military-use weapons and was rumored to have psychic powers, which is unconfirmed.

Intelligence has detected massive heat signatures on the Antarctic area, it is believed to be caused by Exile’s terrorists.

DARPA has agreed to send an elite squad equipped with the most recent tech, the INFILTRATOR suit and STRIKER Suit, both will be used for the first time in real battle along with the new combat military vehicle the NOMAD. Their objectives will be to find the Nuclear weapon’s location, and prevent their launch if needed. Use of lethal force as been authorized, kill their leader if possible.


And thats the prolog.
