The sequel to Techland’s 2003’ sci-fi tactical shooter will take players once more into the world of ruthless corporation wars and tactical missions on the battlefields of the future. Implants, ultra-modern military equipment, weapons of the future, exoskeleton power armors, tactical walkers, powerful mechs and vast, MMORPG-like battlefields make Chrome 2 into one of the hottest future releases.

Welcome to the Virtual Recruitment “2B Agreement” program of Matsuka & Loeb Corporation.

You are dead.

Per the rules and regulations of the Free-Market Consciousness Recovery Act, a titanium core containing your consciousness and memory has been reclaimed and can be implanted into a new body.
