Ghost Recon 2 Goes Gold
Here's the story if you're interested:
On July 4th, 2007, a North Korean missile base is hacked and used to launch a Cruise missile against the USS Clarence E. Walsh in the Korea Strait. US Intelligence suspects that the North Koreans were not responsible for the attack, and the US decides to strictly defend against North Korea. While they mass troops to defend Seoul, the Americans also send Third Echelon agent Sam Fisher in North Korea to investigate. At the same time, the Ghosts are deployed behind enemy lines to carry out sabotage, reconnaissance and quick strikes against the NKA should the conflict explode. Officially, not a single US asset is in North Korea.
As the conflict rages, the Ghosts perform a series of successful missions, including the rescue of a dissident officer from a prison camp. During the course of these operations, the Ghosts learn that the architect of the escalation is Major-General Paik, who sees it as an opportunity to seize power and advance his ambitions.
On July 10th, thanks to Third Echelon agent Sam Fisher, a cease-fire is signed between the US and the DPRK. For the general public, the war is over, but the actions of Major-General Paik are troubling. Throughout the Fall, US Intelligence gathers evidence that Paik is not interested in the cease-fire. Instead, he is building a nuclear program. In November of 2007, Major-General Paik accelerates the program, hoping to launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike. He hopes to reverse what he sees as a cowardly ending to the July crisis, and to force his government to go to war again.
The Ghosts are once again sent to the DPRK, and must now stop the DPRK nuclear program in its tracks.
