Reddit thread:

Jump in the boots of a mercenary sent to an African country where the civil war breaks out. Your target is a notorious arms dealer that supplies both sides of the conflict. As the player arrives at the hotel, they pass out due to malaria. Waking up, you find your target standing over you, reading the mission briefing. The player is too weak to eliminate the arms dealer due to malaria-induced weakness. The Protagonist is left for dead by their target as shooting begins outside the hotel. Get out there, find the target and eliminate him.
