The game pits red against blue, red being the Tanzirilo Independence Force and blue the United Great Force. Players compete across various gameplay modes such as Deathmatch, Destruction/Bomb Defusal, or other modes.

After being discovered by other SA soldiers, he manages an escape and lets the world know of their plan. A rebellion arises as a former group of SA soldiers form to create the Tanzirilo Independence Force, who are now fighting for control before the SA launches their nuclear missile in 2012.
