The explosive, action-packed prequel to EA's mega-selling video game, BATTLEFIELD 4.It's 3am and 20 below zero on the Chinese-North Korean border. Shanghai-based CIA operative Laszlo Kovic's mission is going straight to hell. Tasked with exfiltrating a North Korean nuclear scientist, he unwittingly leads a team of Marines into a deadly ambush. Bruised, battered and frostbitten, he returns to Shanghai seeking answers. Was he set up or did someone leak the mission? Within hours people are trying to kill him and China's own spies are after him. Against orders, Kovic assembles a crack team from Shanghai's underworld - a master hacker, a cat burglar and a former special-forces sniper. His quest takes him to the heart of a deadly conspiracy involving a sinister American-born Chinese gangster and one of the country's most revered leaders. As Shanghai descends into chaos, can he stop the plot before East and West erupt into a global war?
