Following the devastation of the First Visitation, the confederate government of the nation grew increasingly paranoid concerning the return of whatever threat caused it, they named it the Second Visitation.
The player's dream at the beginning of the entire game is an omen of the Second Visitation.
The event itself happens shortly after the start of the game. When player arrives at the city of Nimlard, a television will report that the western part of the country just lost contract, after that the player will encounter more evidences about the event. Based on newspaper clippings regarding the 134th anniversary of Arkady Strugatsky's birthday, the event likely takes place roughly around 2059 measured by our timeline.
During the disaster, the government send troops to fight with intruders, but they soon failed, even with the help of nuclear weapon. Then, Capsules appear across the country, spewing gas in the air, infecting people and turning them into Zombies. However, a secret is revealed - not everyone in the First Visitation turned into a Zombie, but something else: Those who resist transformation seem to have elevated immune systems, intelligence, and strength.
What this new transformation means for the country and its current situation is unknown. But it seems like a secret countermeasure has been raised to resolve the second attack, and save the humanity at large. That's what you players are facing.
