In 1962, the Cuban Missile Crisis began, which was when Soviet Russia secretely started to build missile silos within Cuba that housed intermediate-range ballistic missiles. Tensions rose between the United States of America, Soviet Russia, and Cuba. America's forces were ready to invade Cuba and bomb Soviet Russia once the order was given. Soviet Russia, knowing that an invasion was probable, was also at the ready. Unwilling to accept peace agreements and council sessions, Soviet Russia armed its nuclear missiles. When a Central Intelligence Agency team was sent in to survey the missile silos and captured, the Soviet president, Nikita Khrushchev, lost his nerves. John F. Kennedy, the American president, warned the nation of an impending attack. Two weeks after the whole crisis began, in October, Khrushchev gave the okay to launch the missiles at America, even knowing that the U.S. would retaliate. The missiles hit targets in Washington, D.C., New York, and other primary capitols. The U.S. responded by deploying an invasion team into Cuba and launching their nuclear missiles at Soviet Russia. Britain, Germany, Korea, Australia, Israel, China, and several other nations launched missiles at various targets as well. Within three days, the whole world was left scarred and battered by radiation, destruction, and mass death. Out of more than 3 billion people on the Earth, only about 800,000,000 remained.
The year is now 1986, and a small band of survivors is wandering the American and Canadian wastelands. Their mission: locate survivors, food, water, shelter, and vehicles, and flee to what has been rumored to be a safe-haven; Greenland.
The campaign consists of 10-15 missions.
- No missions are currently known.
The multiplayer of Apocalypse is similar to that of Call of Duty: Black Ops', as it uses Killstreaks. However, Perks have renamed as "Abilities" and CoD Points have been removed. XP does remain.
Ranks and Challenges
There are 50 ranks in Apocalypse, each one of them requiring a certain amount of XP to reach. For each rank, a different icon is given. There is also Prestige, which is basically restarting and reseting all the completed challenges. There are ten levels of Prestige, each one of them having a different icon.
Challenges can help the player in gaining rank quicker. There are five types of challenges: weapons, boot camp, operations, finishing moves, and elite. Each challenge awards a certain amount of XP upon completion.
