We are now besieged from all sides... - APA Soldier
After the conclusion of the First GLA War, the United States had retreated into isolation. The GLA was defeated and had gone underground, and China replaced the US as the world's superpower as it strengthened its military power and sought closer relations with the European nations.
For ten years, China sat comfortably as the world's foremost geopolitical power. However relations with the European Union had been worsening, thus the Eurasian Unity League was eventually dissolved. In response the Asian-Pacific Alliance was formed with China and a united Korea at its helm. Despite this, the APA finds itself challenged on all fronts. The reformed European Union, now a high-tech, single-state entity with an increasingly expansionist agenda, continues to flex her muscles, while a series of increasingly bloody uprising have torn key APA and EU satellite nations asunder. Rumors point to the reconstituted Global Liberation Army as the instigator, but witnesses have described technology far beyond the reach of any normal terrorist organization. Concerned, the APA dispatches an elite force to infiltrate the latest, most volatile rebellion, one targeting an EU-backed dictator.
Their mission - learn the truth about the GLA, undermine the EU and restore peace to the globe.
