Story line

The year is 2011 and somewhere in an unnamed country in the Middle East, a revolution rose, led by Khaled Al-Asad, resulting in the execution of the President of the country, Yasir Al-Fulani. And in the meantime in Russia, ultranationalists and the government engage themselves in a civil war. The ultranationalists, who seek to restore Russia to its soviet-era glory, are led by a Imran Zakhaev. Call of Duty 4 follows an almost movie-like plot where the story is unraveled from behind the eyes of several characters including Sgt. Paul Jackson, Marines 1st Force Reconnaissance Co and Sgt. 'Soap' MacTavish, British 22nd SAS Regiment. The story starts off as Sgt. MacTavish joins the squad of Capt. John Price, leader of the Bravo Team.
