The government must accelerate their super soldier program. Their new Virtual Reality system is the perfect tool to train these soldiers for the coming war. There is a shortage of enlisted men and women that possess the “talent”. Inside the military isn’t enough. Everyone from athletes to professional gamers must be considered.
Lucius is one of those lucky few selected to participate in Codename: Freedom, a new game that promises to push Virtual Reality to the ultimate level.
Unknown to him, the Game Developers have no time to waste. With the pain dampeners turned off and an army ready to attack the new players as they enter Codename: Freedom, he will have to ask himself an unexpected question. Is his dream is worth suffering for? Will he quit, go mad, or find the motivation to fight when it becomes painfully clear that this is far from just another game?
