Report to: Colonel Simić, Military Ops Head for Mirny-13
Mirny-13 is a game mode many of you were asking to return, and we’re pleased to announce it will be coming back. Our current plan is for this episode to be the final chapter in the trilogy, but who knows what the future holds for the town of Mirny.
The event will feature new enemies and bosses. As in previous years, they will be mobile, agile, and hostile, exhibiting cunning and a menacing presence. We look forward to an exciting resolution to our characters’ story arc, but one can never be certain. The Immortal has surprised us before, and it may happen again.
The situation in Mirny-13 is dire.
The planned withdrawal of military personnel and equipment from Mirny was performed on schedule, leaving only the science team in the area. Five days later, our scouts registered an energy spike in the ruins of the city: someone or something activated Magnus, spawning a new interdimensional rift. Within minutes, there was a sharp increase in hostile activity in the area, with multiple sightings of new types of anomalies and Mirium-infused armored vehicles. Mirium itself became more agitated, producing rapidly growing crystalline structures. This could be related to personnel in the field reporting severe levels of psychological stress—which they attributed to perceived mental pressure from an external source.
The Command needed not only observations, but also an explanation for what was happening. We believed we could get some from Hope, the head of the science team. Ever since this whole mess started, we tried to establish radio comms with her, but failed. We couldn’t immediately locate her in Mirny, either. Then came new reports—of a young woman walking among enemy tanks unharmed. The machines were obviously aware of her presence, as they reacted to her and modified their behavior after she approached them. The descriptions and photos of the woman matched those of Hope.
Having realized that our best Mirium expert had committed an act of treason, the Command dispatched a special team to arrest Hope. This detachment was led by Captain Martin Novak, a Mirny-13 veteran. Novak’s squad was last seen entering the rift. Communication with them was lost shortly after and hasn’t been re-established as of now.
The special circumstances we’re in require that we deploy our elite units—including your team. You must locate Novak’s squad and assist them in their mission—or take the mission over if the first objective isn’t met. We can assume that you will encounter new threats in the multiple layers of the anomalous area.
Keep your eyes peeled and remain level-headed no matter what. Good luck out there, Commander. You and your squad will need it.
