But it was also responsible for the development of a different kind of weapon.
The new device was stealthy, instantaneous, and absolutely devastating.
Fortunately, it was also lost.
Until Now…

Designed by Nikola Tesla, arguably the greatest inventor of the Twentieth Century, the weapon is experimental, it is capable, and it has been missing for almost sixty years.

If Michael is to prevent a catastrophe, he’ll need to get to the device before the Conspiracy or risk upsetting the global balance of power forever. Of course, finding the Tesla Device is one thing, knowing whom he can trust with it is another matter entirely.

To survive, Michael will have to do both. If he doesn’t, what started as a bad day is about to become a disaster.
