Storyline

North Korea seems to be opening up to the outside world under the rule of Choi Kim. However, his son, Choi Song, a top commander of the North Korean army, leads a coup that has the leaders of North and South Korea be killed. North Korea descends into isolation, and it is revealed that it has exported nuclear material to outside terrorist groups. In retaliation, North Korea is overrun by outside forces and Song goes into hiding, but the threat is not yet over; Song has access to nuclear missiles and threatens to use them on the outside world. Each faction in the country has its own agenda: China seeks to annex North Korea, and South Korea has the same goal in mind. The Allied Nations (a parody of the United Nations) seeks to restore peace, while the Russian Mafia seeks to profit from the instability. All four factions are fighting the North Korean military. The player must work with each faction in order to find Song. Written by Sam
