Russia, 2028. The construction of a major international gas pipeline on the border of the Leningradskaya and Murmanskay regions near Finland led to the creation of the “Norvinsk” Special Economic Zone. However, a multinational organization “Terra`s Group”, which is believed to have links to an illegal operation in Tarkov two years ago and several local officials, has begun to provoke an open military conflict between United Nations forces and the internal forces of the Russian Federation MVD in the region. With such political tensions, no one is ready to admit the existence of the conflict, and everyone responds to private military contractors: BEAR (Battle Encounter Assault Regiment), which is known to be unofficially supported by Russia to subjugate the foreign company, and USEC (United Security), hired by Terra`s group to act as a peacekeeping force but claimed by Russian special forces, Liquidate evidence and witnesses related to their covert operation. Thus began the Treaty Wars, a secret and intense battle in this small region of Norvinsk. The game is available on Facebook, Congregation and VK. It has several game modes such as Deathmatch, Team Elimination, Target Designation and Tactical Conquest.

This created a new account, but kept all the players` progress in the Kongregate version of Contract Wars. This option will no longer be available from 2021. The Contract Wars client is pure Windows software. It is identical to the browser version except that it has a client-side anticheat.
