- "No, too late. Bottom of the eighth, Chicago's ahead. Game's almost over. We, are outta time."
- ―Jordi Chin
At the very beginning, a cutscene shows Aiden Pearce and his mentor Damien Brenks attempting to hack into Merlaut hotel and steal a large sum of money. They are discovered and identified. An unknown man, who has discovered that Aiden and Damien were the hackers, orders a hitman named Maurice to kill Pearce, with his family as a potential target. A car containing Aiden and his niece and nephew (Jacks and Lena) is attacked by two men riding motorcycles- one of whom is Maurice. Maurice fires a shot from a pistol, blowing a tire. The car flips, and Lena dies.
11 months later, Aiden corners Maurice at a baseball game at May Stadium. Aiden brutally interrogates Maurice but to no avail. He leaves Maurice alive and meets up with Jordi Chin, a fixer who Aiden hired, who stabs a gang member in the stomach. He warns Aiden that it is the bottom of the eighth, and the game will end soon. He has called the cops and plans to distract them by staging a shootout to lead the cops away from them. Aiden manages to sneak out of the stadium, but only after causing a blackout in the stadium, thanks to a hacker known as BadBoy17. The cops attempt to evacuate the stadium while dealing with the blackout, and Aiden escapes in the confusion.
Jordi left Aiden an escape vehicle and the player can choose to use it. Aiden must escape the police search area and return to his hideout. He knows that simple torture will not work and believes that Maurice, eaten by the guilt from the inside, will reveal who ordered the hit.
