Expected mission length: 120+ min (might be over or under)



Act 1 - Prelude to a Nightmare








            It is now clear that the signal we have uncovered was a ploy by The Templar, who wished to test the skill and determination of his enemy. While the original objectives of the mission couldn't be completed, Altian armed forces managed to rescue several officers captured by Freedom or insurgents during last weeks. The engagement has proven that The Templar and his forces will not be an easy enemy to beat. Regardless, while their threat remains serious, there is an even greater danger looming over the islands now.

            With the Russian ultimatum and absolute refusal of US forces to comply with it, war is now almost certain. NATO forces cooperate with Altian government and high command in an effort to put together a plan of defense for the archipelago, but time is short and resources are scarce. The presence of insurgents on the island is not making things easier either. As days pass and Russian and Gatekeeper forces circle the archipelago in a standoff with American task force, diplomats on both sides still attempt to avoid the escalation of the crisis. Their efforts bring no fruit however. Diplomacy failed, and so it seems war is inevitable. As the time set by Russian ultimatum draws ever closer, fear can be felt across the archipelago. Fear amongst the populace, and amongst the soldiers who will soon stand against the might of the bear.

            As sun sets on the final day of peace, a sudden large scale cyber-attack cripples the Altian defense net. Radars, communications and CICs across the archipelago are affected. While it is originally suspected that Freedom and insurgent forces are involved, it quickly became apparent they would be unable to conduct an electronic warfare operation of this magnitude. It appears that Gatekeeper's shiny tech is involved, which can only mean one thing: Altis was infiltrated by enemy forces and the cyber-attack is a preparation for imminent invasion when the ultimatum ends. With merely an hour left before the time set by the Russians, a group of Altian soldiers ventures out in a desperate attempt to restore communications before it is too late. The prelude has ended - nightmare is now upon us.

            The Altian doomsday clock is showing midnight...

This marks the ends of Act 1 of War for Altis

"Prelude to a nightmare"


"Today, at 00:01 local time, The Archipelago of Altis came under a rapid and violent attack by the armed forces of the Russian Federation. We will not stand for this unprovoked act of violence. We will not yield and we will defend our soil, our citizens and our resources with any means available to us. Our enemies, regardless of coming from abroad or within, will learn that people of Altis are people who are no strangers to hardships, for we have tamed this land, no strangers to fear, for we have courage unlike any you have seen... And no strangers to violence, for we have endured more than you ever will. "

- Altian Prime Minister transmitting from the government bunker


The enemy used underhanded tactics in order to get an advantage in the opening phase of the invasion. They have landed on our soil before the official start of the hostilities in order to paralyze our defense network and communications. A group of Altian soldiers supported by the Americans ventured out to destroy enemy equipment used to facilitate the cyber-attack. They fought in darkness, going up against an unknown threat and with no communications. Their courage is admirable and their heroic efforts will not be forgotten. For their actions they will all be awarded medal of honor. They have accomplished their mission and the enemy equipment was finally shut down about 15 minutes after midnight. While the invasion has already begun, the enemy did not have free reign they had hoped for and we managed to organize defenses sooner thatn they anticipated. The situation is still under assesment, but it seems that the Russian forces, supported in several instances by Gatekeeper, made landfall in several areas of the Islands. Stratis has fallen two hours after midnight, the island's garrison was hit hard during the intial suprise attack. Situation on Malden seems stable, though there is a strong Russian presence on the island. It seems Malden is a secondary objective for them. On Altis situation is not looking good, but we managed to contain the initial assault - for now at least. We must do what we can before they can bring in supplies and heavy equipment. Apparently Freedom and Insurgent forces were also a thorn in their side, as we have learned that Templar's forces repelled the landing of Russian forces in the northern part of the island. There is still fighting in the east, but the msot concering are the Russian forces that landed int he southern side of the island, both eastern and western sections. Additionally Kavala was assaulted by an airborne force during the first 15 minutes of the war and they managed to secure a foothold in the city. We must act fast to push them away, as they are separated from the main (southern) force.

Our NATO allies are of course supporting us. While this means that USA and Russia are now in a state of war, it seems that fighting is limited to the Altis archipelago, for now at least. Some call it a proxy war, others are just glad the nukes continue to collect dust in the silos.

We are at war now and the altian doomsday clock has hit midnight. But this is Altis and we have always prevailed. We will always prevail.







"People of Altis. You grief now and I grief with you. Once again, they try to take your liberty from you. As they always have and, as I am afraid, as they will continue to do. But fear not, for they are neither better nor than your own government what exploits you and limits your freedom. And I assure you, people of Altis, that these foreign opressors are just as much an enemy to me, to us, as those who opress you from within. You, people of Altis, are ones who can withstand a lot. But you can do much more than that. You can stand against it, stand for what you truly desire, for your freedom. Join us, and you shall be Free..."

- message broadcasted by The Templar two hours after invasion
