14 months after the Blacklight being Alex Mercer saved the infected New York on his quest for redemption, Sgt. James Heller returns to the city, once his home, following his dismissal from a war in the Middle East. He discovers that his wife and daughter have been killed, sending him into a downward spiral of grief and rage. He heads out on a suicide mission into the heart of the Red Zone with the intention of dying in action and taking as many abominations as he can with him.
On one such mission into the Red Zone Heller's team is killed and he was confronted by Alex Mercer. A fight ensues between the two, leading Heller attacking Mercer multiple times only to be thrown back. Impressed by his his actions, Mercer infects Heller with his own strain of the Blacklight virus as he believed him to be the perfect lieutenant in spreading the virus beyond Manhattan. Heller awakens in one of Gentek's research facilities and manages to escape. He's then confronted by Mercer who manages to convince Heller that he was not responsible for the viral outbreak. Blackwatch and Gentek were using New York for testing bio-weapons. Mercer claims that he wouldn't be able to take down the two factions without help.
In order to help Mercer, Heller had to develop his abilities. Heller sets out to foil Blackwatch and Gentek's operation in anyway he could.
