2020. First contact with the alien Ceph. A team of nanosuited soldiers led by Major Barnes, codename Prophet, were sent in to the Lingshan Islands. Few survived. But the alien menace was held back.
2023. The Ceph took New York. A dying Prophet passed on his nanosuit to a Marine named Alcatraz. Once again the suit’s powerful technology saved the day.
Now death has returned to the ruins of New York. Enclosed by the massive Liberty Dome, controlled by the powerful and corrupt company CELL, the city is a battleground. CELL troopers, resistance fighters and deadly Ceph stalk the streets. And hidden in the city is a secret that will destroy the world.
