Using the work of disgraced Agency scientist Dr. Baltazar Czernenko, the Agency are able to create biologically augmented supersoldiers known as Agents. These Agents were designed to eliminate each gang boss in Pacific City to dismantle gang influence on the streets.
When the Agent dismantles each gang in the city, the Agency Director congratulates them for their efforts and reveals that the Agency have been secretly outfitting the gangs in order to instill fear in Pacific City's denizens. With the Agency publicly vowing to make the city crime-free, then Pacific City's citizens would willingly submit to the Agency taking total control of the city.

After several blackout attacks occur worldwide, the Agency have taken the fight to the TerraNova Corporation on the island of New Providence.
