Black Ops II starts in 2025. At that time, China and the United States are in a cold war after China stops the export of rare earth elements. Military is now full of robotics, cyberwarfare, unmanned vehicles and other modern technology. People think that this unmanned technology could just be hacked. Players take the role of a military CIA commander David Mason, who is the son of the main protagonist from the previous game, Alex Mason. A massive and unstoppable cyber attack is about to be launched by Raul Menendez, using a rare earth element called Celerium. Mason and his squad are desperately trying to capture Menendez and learn of his goals, and they succeed in that, only to find out that he had planned to be captured all along, to launch the cyber attack directly from the CIA military base. Throughout a massive New York City destruction, Mason is able to stop Menendez, killing him, or capturing him for good, depending on the player's choice.
