"Like previous entries you’ll play a selection of different characters as the narrative unfolds..."
The story takes place in present day where a terrorist organisation has stolen a cache of chemical weapons. They unleash a deadly attack in London and this sets off a series of missions where you’ll attempt to find out who is behind the violent strike and bring those perpetrators to justice. Like previous entries you’ll play a selection of different characters as the narrative unfolds, and along the way, be guided by the familiar Captain John Price -- a fan favourite from the Call of Duty franchise.
