Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is set in 2054, when a terrorist organization, the KVA, initiates the first global terrorist attack in history. They simultaneously destroy the nuclear reactions of developed countries, including the United States. This results in many governments’s infrastructures being devastated and thus they being incapacitated from fighting back against KVA. As a result, PMC’s (Private Military Corporations) become the dominant armed forces for countless nations. Players will control Jack Mitchell, voiced by Troy Baker, a former U.S. Marine who lost his left arm during a battle in Korea. He joins Atlas, the world’s most powerful private military company. Another character, Jonathan Irons, voiced by Kevin Spacey, is the CEO of Atlas, fights a war against America’s ineffectiveness as the promoter of democracy.
