About the IslandEdit
The island is made up of a series of 11 individual biomes including marine estuaries and wetlands, arboreal forests, snow-capped mountains, fjords and active volcanoes.
80 million years ago, the archipelago first broke away from the landmass that would eventually become New Zealand and Australia. Later its first inhabitants, known as The Kings of the Forest or The Forgotten, vanished long ago, leaving only relics of their ancient civilization. Beginning in the 16th century, the island was discovered by Europeans and they attempted to colonize it with sea forts and trading posts, but were eventually run off by the locals. In 1770, James Cook was the first to discover the South Pacific archipelago. In the 19th century, the Europeans came back in force, this time in search of gold, and established more permanent settlements. It would later become a strategic location during World War II, and then home to American airbases during the Cold War.
In 1953, the island was leased to the U.S. to sway Soviet influence in the area.
The local population was evacuated, and a military presence was maintained until 1996.
In the mid-1990s, Mads Schulz, a retired U.S. Marine who was stationed on one of those airbases, decided to start his own community, the Homesteaders, that broke free from society and oppose humanity’s dependence on industrialization.
Yet in 2008, CEO Jace Skell purchased the lease from the U.S. Government and converted the whole island into the headquarters of Skell Technology, with a vision of turning it into a hub for the design, research, development and production of artificial intelligence and drone technology. The construction started in 2009. By 2016, construction of the island was complete. The island consists of a city which is home to all employees of the tech company as "World 2.0". In 2020, drone production begins.
In 2024, Auroa was home to more than 30,000 souls. Internal security has been entrusted to the Private Military Company named Sentinel Corp.
After Skell Tech arrived on Auroa, the Homesteaders cohabited peacefully with the company until the archipelago was taken over by Cole D. Walker and his group of rogue Ghost Recon operators known as the Wolves in 2023. They then hired Sentinel to guard the island. Since then, the island has become a stronghold for Walker and the Wolves after Operation: Citadel. When he cut off all communications systems, the island was disconnected from the entire world.
