The world has changed. A crippling energy crisis has forced gas prices past $7 a gallon and sent the American economy into a frightening tailspin. Terrorist factions have taken advantage of this severe instability, striking the nation regularly without warning. Fallout from this collapse has been devastating. The U.S. and the world are experiencing unprecedented disorder. Through this techno-thriller story constructed by military expert and author Dale Brown, this real-time strategy experience puts players squarely in control of counterterrorist forces to defend cities of the world. As commander of a newly formed anti-terror military unit known as the Talon Task Force, players will need to recruit combat units, develop technologies, manage finite resources, and deploy their forces against a cunning and ruthless terror network.
