The United States.
The country’s still in a state of shock after President Sheridan’s assassination.
You wake up, amnesiac and wounded, on a deserted East Coast beach. The only clues to your identity are the number XIII tattooed near your collarbone and the key to a safety deposit box.
Though your memory has let you down, you find you have the reflexes of a highly-trained professional combatant.
You set off in search of your past, discovering the part you played in the killing of the President of the United States and tracing the biggest conspiracy ever known in the history of the country back to its source.
Discover the identities of The XX, an organization that aims to overthrow democracy in the USA. Sometime after its creation, The XX began to recruit other like-minded and politically powerful individuals and took control of SPADS (Special Assault and Destruction Squads) turning them into mercenaries under the employ of The Mongoose.
XIII is a first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Paris and published by Ubisoft. Loosely based on the first five volumes of the 1984 Belgian graphic novel series XIII, the protagonist Jason Fly (XIII) is a confused and amnesic man who searches for his identity throughout a comic book-style, cel-shaded world. Found stranded on a beach by a lifeguard, Fly is accused of having killed the President of the United States. The accusation later transpires as mistaken, as Fly finds himself facing a gang of 20 conspirators ("The XX") who aim to overthrow the government.
The game was well received by the public and critics, but its sales were not as high as expected by Ubisoft, which resulted in the cancellation of future sequels. The game ends on a cliffhanger, but the story continues through the comics.
