At Ubisoft Berlin, I had the pleasure and honor to work on the Special Operation "Puerta del Edén".

"Puerta del Edén" takes place in what was once a gorgeous valley on the fictional island of Yara. Now, the valley has been deforested and destroyed, and turned into a Kingdom by Colonel Sanz and her cult followers.
They're threatening to poison Yara's water supply with the weaponized poison called PG240-X.

The player(s) need to seek out the poison, keep it from heating up in the sun, and return it to the entrance of the park, where taxi driver Lola picks them up.
