Here is the story line for the game.
World War Z
In 2017, a much feared, yet long kept secret manifests itself. Global scientists had long been warning the governments that many of the world’s oilfields were running dry. Much of North and South America, Europe, Russia, China, Africa and Australia see their wells production drop to zero almost overnight. The global economy destabilizes as the price of a barrel of oil skyrockets to thousands of dollars a barrel. The Middle East, one of the few remaining productive oilfields, becomes a political hotbed, and powerhouse. Yet, greed becomes the ultimate factor as Iran moves to strengthen its global status, invades a weaker Iraq, seizing the oilfields. A NATO backed Israel pushes back and a bloody, vicious war erupts. Wielding vast arsenals of conventional, biological, and nuclear weapons, both countries pound away at each other, and are routinely attacked themselves, by local terror cells. One of these cells launches a missile, which detonates in the air over the lines, releasing an aerosol over both armies. Soon, bizarre reports are coming in to all governments, reports of massacres, vicious atrocities where on body parts are left behind. Spy drones send back the first video of massive bands of the unknown attackers, Zombies! As they mow through the Israeli and Iranian armies, their numbers multiply exponentially. Fearing that the Zombies may spread throughout the world, American and China launch the last result, a massive nuclear strike! Not only do they vaporize the Zombie horde, but also contaminate one of the last productive oilfields in the world.
Three years later, the world continues to crumble as one by one countries run out of oil. With China and the US having the last remaining productive oilfields. However, US scientists now report that wells in the Gulf of Mexico are running dry. The US reacts quickly to the news, and utilizing its last strategic reserves of oil, launches an assault to take the Chinese oilfields. World War III has begun. Two massive armies square off, with the largest arsenals of weaponry ever seen. Yet without massive amounts of oil to fuel the machines of war, the battle deteriorates into a war of infantry. Massive lines of troops stretch for miles behind trenches, trees, and any cover they can find. As the battle grinds on, Chinese and US scientists rush to find a biological solution, as neither army can use nuclear weapons for fear of destroying the oil field. The battle rages and both generals, Coy “Doc” Shaffstall(the American general) and Chris “Boober” Foti(the Chinese general), are approached by a dark faction, offering a formula that may lead to the other armies destruction, or potentially their own!
Which army will you join, American or Chinese? What will be the course of the war? Who will achieve this new biological weapon, and what will it do?
