Challenge... solving the mystery behind the terrorist attack. When an explosion at Sarif caused by anti-augmentation terrorists nearly kills him, Adam is tasked with using his new enhancements to bring his company’s enemies to justice. However, he soon discovers even larger global conspiracies surrounding augmentations, free will, and the very fate and future of humanity itself.
