About This Game
Mercenaries 2: World In Flames is set in the year 2010. The story follows the player’s hunt for Guillermo Solano, a major political figure who hires the mercenary for a job, where he refuses to pay and tries to kill him.
After a coup, Solano becomes dictator of Venezuela, where he uses his position to seize national control of oil supplies, sparking an international incident and OPEC angst.
Along with Solano’s rebel forces, most of the Venezuelan Army fiercely supports the dictator’s cause. The other rebel forces, in opposition to Solano, have emerged under the name of EPLV (People’s Liberation Army of Venezuela).
They are soon joined in the fight for control of the oil by numerous factions, including the Universal Petroleum Company; the Rastafarian Pirates (the equivalent of the Russian Mafia from the first installment of Mercenaries); the People’s Liberation Army of China; and the AN (Alliance of Nations).
