I’m the first to admit that I have neither the technical skill nor the legal firepower, to protect myself against the potential lawsuits (for using the words Call, of and Duty as a game title), to create a trailer, That said as my very first blog I thought I would do a sought of transcript, like the ones for the levels in Call of Duty: Endgame, for From the Cold.
As always comments are welcome and I plan to add new posts and information about this and any other projects I am working about. Anyway enjoy the transcript and feel free to suggest weapons, vehicles and anything else you want to see in the game.

Finally a SAS operative is seen base jumping off a Durga antennae as an Mi-24 opens fire on the structure.
Codename Alistair - We remained hidden our missions so controversial at the time covered by the cloak and defended by the dagger. We did what no one else would and in doing so we created a monster
