They’re trying to get the female president to a safe place and being attacked. This looks like quite the scary future. Looks like some pretty sweet concrete busting ammo. (please get rid of the quick scoping in multiplayer). The level they’re showing off looks alot like Arkaden from MW3. An entire building just came down and the dust is everywhere. ..and now dude is climbing into a jet that the player is actually controlling.
