This new single-player campaign highlights two storylines. One is set between the 1970s through to 1980s, and the other part is in 2025. Alex Mason reappears as a Cold War hero who fights in place of the United States government; look out for missions in Central America, Afghanistan during the Soviet invasion and Angola. This game’s antagonist is Raul Mendez, a Nicaraguan narco-terrorist frontrunner of “Cordis Die,” a pressure group renowned as the champions of victims of economic inequality. Also, expect a 2025 narrative by Frank. The 2025 segment will feature Mason’s son David. A cyber-attack will cripple the Chinese Stock Exchange, and China will ban the export of rare elements. In turn, this leads to a new Cold War between China and the United States.
In 2015 war is declared in robotics, cyber warfare with unmanned vehicles, and other futuristic equipment. Mendez attempts to bring the two powers to a full-blown war by taking advantage of this stand-off to incite conflicts. The brawl is expected to go down in Los Angeles, Singapore, Socotra, and Yemen.*
