It was released worldwide in February 2011. Emperor Scolar Visari is assassinated by 3d total dynamic characters pdf forces, triggering a full-scale attack by the Helghan First Army.
Overwhelmed, ISA commanders order a full withdrawal, leaving hundreds of their own soldiers to die on Helghan. With the Helghast now driven to seek revenge for Visari’s death, the survivors must join forces to find a way home. After failing to save Visari’s life, Sgt. Tomas Sevchenko and Rico Velasquez regroup with Captain Jason Narville outside the imperial palace. Admiral Orlock, commander of the First Army, is pressured by Jorhan Stahl, the chairman of arms manufacturer Stahl Arms, to either ensure the total destruction of the ISA or turn over control of the army to him. Meanwhile, Rico receives a transmission from Jammer, a sniper whose platoon has been cut off by the Helghast. Against Narville’s orders, he goes to assist them.
The rest of the force attempts to link up with the fleet, but enemy interference leads to several ships being shot down, forcing the remainder to leave without Narville’s men. Six months later, Stahl calls for a vote in the Helghan Imperial Senate to remove Orlock for incompetence, but his request is denied. Furious, Stahl ends his company’s cooperation with the First Army and organizes his personal guard to hunt down the ISA, who have set up a base in a remote jungle near one of their destroyed cruisers. While working to restore the base’s communication uplink, the soldiers learn that the UCN has agreed to a ceasefire with the Helghast, effectively abandoning them. The transmission is intercepted by Stahl’s men, who subsequently attack the camp and kill everyone aside from Tomas and Narville, who are taken captive. Rico and Jammer’s platoon, now calling themselves the Raiders, ambush the convoy and free Tomas.
They carry out several attacks against Helghan facilities in the area, eventually reaching the main campus of Stahl Arms. Learning that Stahl plans to publicly execute Narville, Tomas and Rico don Helghast uniforms and rescue him and his fellow prisoners. Accessing the company’s mainframe, they discover that Stahl has built his own armada armed with weapons powered by irradiated Petrusite, powerful enough to tear living organisms apart. Believing himself to be Visari’s rightful successor, Stahl intends to win the favor of Helghan by conquering Earth itself. Fed up with Stahl’s arrogance, the senate grants Orlock the title of Autarch, giving him Visari’s throne instead. Stahl is ordered to surrender his ships to the First Army’s fleet above Helghan so they may be used to attack Earth.
