EDIT: Im readin the article right now and this part is very interesting to me
"Let me describe a mission at the abandoned military warehouses as an example. So, starting points is: The level has the old abandoned military warehouses with the Freedom faction settled there. This is the central base of Freedom, which is well protected and heavily guarded. Duty faction is the main enemy of Freedom, but it's members have found the base and prepare an assault. The Duty squad is hiding not far away from the store ready for the attack. The player appears on the level with a rather simple task - find RG-6 (a weapon). Searching for RG-6 will bring the player both to the Duty faction detachment and to Freedom's base. The player will have a choice to make: - accept the offer from Duty and storm the Freedom's base together with the group - tell Freedom's leader about the imminent assault and participate in Freedom's attack on Duty's squads - set both factions on to fight and try to eliminate both of them There is a wide selection of the following actions to make and of ways to carry out the task."
