STORYLINE
Syphon Filter: The Omega Strain is the next installment of the Syphon Filter storyline.
Outbreaks of a fatal, mysterious virus erupt in such different locations as Toronto, Belarus,
Uganda, and Brazil. How did it spread? Where did the virus come from? Chechnyan terrorists
threaten Moscow with a weapon of mass destruction. Where did they get it? What do they
want? The enigmatic Mara Aramov escapes from a high security prison and is seen in locations
all over the world. How did she escape? Who is she working for?

Gabe Logan suspects that each of these questions can be answered with another: Who is behind
the Syphon Filter conspiracy? Put in charge of a powerful new black-box Agency, Gabe uses all
of his resources in a desperate battle against the clock. He and his team track terrorists all over
the world including Quebec, Yemen, Belarus, Myanmar and Tokyo, as they struggle to discover
who mutated the original virus, and why. But ultimately, Gabe must battle with the dark side of
high-stakes espionage: how far will he push his team to solve the mystery behind Syphon Filter:
The Omega Strain. How far will you go, to help him?
