2027; The war on the machines has been raging for two decades, with no semblance of peace in sight. Every advancement made on either side is matched, both powers locked in a lethal war of attrition as the body count rises. There is no victor, yet humanity's numbers dwindle by the hour. The time has come to move on the coast.
A push must be made. Ground gained. A real victory unmatched by machine or man. For nearly half a decade, the ruins of Los Angeles have been tilled by the footfalls of artificial soldiers.
