The plot of the game takes place in a failed African state in the year 2008. A civil war prevails in the state. The two factions fighting against each other are UFLL and APR. The main objective of the player is to assassinate an arms dealer called ‘Jackal’ who has been taking advantage of the conflict and has been providing both the factions with arms. The playable characters vary in ethnicities and abilities. The game play is designed in such a way so as to be compatible with every player’s pace and choice. This results in a ‘sandbox mode’.
