The second game, ''GroundControl 2 : Operation Exodus'', takes place around two hundred years later. The corporations are gone, the Order of the New Dawn is probably gone as well. In their place is the [[TheEmpire Terran Empire]] (the bad guys), the [[TheAlliance Northern Star Alliance]] (the good guys), and the Viron Nomads (the freaky aliens). The plot revolves around the Terran Empire trying to take over the the Northern Star Alliance's home world Morningstar Prime, and the Virons being used as a slave race. The gameplay has been changed to be more RTS-like with reinforcements being a standard part of gameplay. This mechanic is later reused in the SpiritualSuccessor ''WorldInConflict''.

* UnitsNotToScale: Both played straight and averted. The aversion is in the fact that all the units and buildings are perfectly on scale with one another, and with hills, cliffs, etc. The played-straight part comes in the fact that the flora and fauna on Krig 7-B are ''huge''. There are birds the size of aerodynes, giant trees larger than most buildings, and tall grasses that easily dwarf tanks in height. It is possible that the atmosphere on Krig 7-B is hyper-oxygenated, accounting for giant flora and fauna.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: You discover evidence that Vlaana has pulled a massive XanatosGambit in missions 21 and 22. What she was actually trying to achieve is never revealed, although you do appear to put a spanner in the works, judging by her last appearance in game.
