The epic Interploar War of the 62nd century has reached a cease-fire. Once-warring Terra Novan superpowers have now joined forces against the threat of full-scale enemy invasion. Only the most elite Gear Force will be able to undermine the opposition's plans. Lead your war machine behind enemy lines in stealth raids and reconnaissance missions in a death-defying drive to defend your world's imperiled independence. Only your Special Ops Squad stands a fighting chance.
Your unit is to be transported to planet Caprice, the strategically important "Gate World" that connects all of mankind's interstellar settlements, and serves as the enemy's base for launching invasions against Terra Nova. You will advance behind enemy lines, to gain intelligence on the nature of the enemy's armies, weaponry and plans for future attacks against our home planet.
