Woven into the prologue of Red Faction II, Guerilla jettisons Earthly confines in favor of the Martian landscape where it all began. 50 years have passed since the Earth Defense Force (EDF) liberated the populace, only to fall victim to greed. Marshall Law, imprisonment, and death are the standard working conditions for the voiceless colonies of miners. Alec Mason couldn't have picked a worse time to change employers. Barely a day after stepping on the red planet, his brother is murdered and he is deemed a terrorist by the EDF. With no way out, his only option is to pick up the hammer and join Red Faction.
