Operation Flashpoint: Resistance casts you as Victor Troska, an experienced ex-Special Forces militia soldier. Having turned his back on his military past, Troska has settled into respectable civilian life on an island just a short distance from the original game's three islands. However, your situation changes when the Soviet force invades the island group and destroy your idyllic dreams. Now you can explore the various areas on the island or an additional island complete with industrial-style buildings and original landscape scenery. This expansion to Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis also delivers new weapons and vehicles as well as a series of original multiplayer missions on the new island.
