  • Atlas submits a lengthy report to the U.S. Department of Defense on the security risks of nuclear power facilities being a tactical hazard.

June 15thEdit

  • Jonathan Irons accepts his new seat as the first CEO of a private corporation to be admitted to the United Nations Security Council, only to announce the existence of Manticore. Irons effectively declares war on the governments of the world, claiming that governments and politicians have done nothing to solve the world's problems. In particular, Irons personally targets the United States, stating that their failed attempts at installing democracy across the world for the last century have only led to more conflicts, rather than resolution.
  • Sentinel members Mitchell and Gideon engage enemy Atlas personnel on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, California in pursuit of a target van believed to pose a direct threat to the nearby U.S. Navy's Third Fleet.
    • Although secured by Sentinel forces, the van is revealed to contain several drones that affix to the cables and self-destruct, causing the Golden Gate Bridge to collapse onto the carrier underneath it and trap it in the San Francisco Bay.
  • Mitchell, Gideon, Cormack, and Knox successfully prevent Atlas from destroying the U.S. Third Fleet.


January 8thEdit

  • Following the assault on San Francisco, Irons and Atlas finds themselves in a state of war with virtually every single nation in the world.
  • Sentinel members Mitchell, Ilona, Cormack, Gideon, and Knox, along with the U.S. 37th Airborne, assault the Atlas headquarters and the city of New Baghdad in an attempt to capture Irons.
    • The attack fails, as Atlas deploys spores of Manticore on the battlefield, immediately killing anyone whose DNA is not programmed into the Atlas database. Knox is one such casualty; however, Mitchell, Ilona, and Gideon are spared from the effects as they were previously Atlas operatives. Cormack is also spared as he and his squad were outside the radius of ground zero.
  • After their escape from the prison camp, Mitchell and Gideon, coordinated by Ilona, secure two A.S.T. exos and assault the Atlas Command Center in New Baghdad to halt the launch of Manticore against the United States and the world.
    • Mitchell and Gideon successfully stop the Manticore launch and shift focus to capturing Jonathan Irons. However, Irons remotely disables Mitchell and Gideon's exos and flees.
      • Mitchell is able to manually detach himself from his exo and chase down after Irons before tackling him over the edge of Atlas HQ. Mitchell then severs his prosthetic arm, thereby dropping Irons to his death in the process.
