The main protagonists are trying to neutralize the increasing threat of terrorism. Most of the missions were created based on actual military operations that took place in the region. What’s interesting, the game runs on two different graphic engines. The single player mode was created on an improved but slightly outdated Unreal Engine 3, while the multiplayer mode uses the Frostbite engine, which was used, for example, in Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
