Preview the Adventure
AgraTech is an international corporate conglomerate that counts both biotech and environmental businesses among its diverse profit centers. In conjunction with its environmental interests, the corporation operates an environmental research station on the continent of Antarctica. But this facility, known as Adelie 14, also has a secondary purpose that has never been revealed to the public. That purpose is of interest to various nations, including Russia, which has made a private arrangement with AgraTech.
Officials in the Ukraine have learned about AgraTech's activities and about Russia's involvement. They intend to expose the operation and put a stop to Russia's plans. To that end, they have hired some special agents -- the heroes -- to acquire proof of the covert activities at Adelie 14.
