Before the Storm is the thirteenth and penultimate mission of World in Conflict.
The Russians have fortified several islands in Puget Sound with anti-ship missile batteries. The islands need to be retaken and the batteries captured intact so that they can be used against the Chinese if they should get as far as the sound. Your objective is to capture Sandfish Island.
The mission is staged on Sandfish Island, located in Puget Sound. The strategic objective of the mission is to launch an amphibious assault, capture a pair of anti-ship missile launchers, and secure a vital Russian camp.
The player has a variety of units up his sleeve, including helicopters, infantry and light vehicles, in addition to paratroopers that can be deployed with tactical aid.
Before the Storm begins with Parker tasked to neutralise anti-air fortifications around three command points on a beach, so as to allow aerial deployment of units. Following from this, the newly-promoted captain is directed to eliminate the existing enemy defences around the anti-ship launchers, and secure the positions. Finally, while keeping these positions intact, Captain Parker is tasked with blowing out the Soviet occupation at the main camp and subsequently secure it. The player will have to coordinate their forces, to capture the main Russian Camp and protect their fortified anti-ship command points simultaneously, since the Soviets will counter-attack the two positions and call on light artillery barrages to neutralise US forces in the command points.
Parker has a number of Secondary Objectives to complete, such as clearing the AA emplacements within an allotted timeframe, decimating three squads of Spetsnaz teams concealed in the forests, and eliminating the AA vehicles on the north-side of the island.
