Advanced Warfare brings out the concept of Private Military Corporations into gaming. The game has a fictional PMC named Atlas Corporation that is being headed by Hollywood star, Kevin Spacey's character.
The game is set in a futuristic 2054, a world in which a terrorist group known as KVA has perpetuated attacks that have left America stripped off its Superpower status and leaving the Atlas to emerge as the dominant military force.
