Video Game: Nuclear Winter

Nuclear Winter is a 2002 Half-Life: Opposing Force mod by Loki's Missions.

In 2017 AD, the Eastern Alliance launched an attack of cloaked nuclear missiles upon North America. After doing so, their forces arrive on American shores to occupy all that remains.

Sure enough, the US military refused to give up without a fight, resulting in a battle that raged on for months. This is where you come in, Corporal Adrian Shephard of the United States Marine Corps.

Although the mod requires Opposing Force at first, its second (and current) version only requires a Steam version of Half-Life.

Available online.
