After the attack of Category III Kaiju, Knifehead, in 2020 prompts the Pan Pacific Defence Corps. to begin funding anti-kaiju walls around the world, the Jaeger Programme becomes a means to defend the public while the walls are under construction. Raleigh Becket, the surviving pilot of Gipsy Danger, takes a step away from the cockpit, choosing to head the programme’s Alaska branch under the orders of Marshal Stacker Pentecost.
Pentecost is informed that, once the walls are finished being built, the Jaeger Programme will be discontinued. When Mutavore, a Category IV Kaiju, breaks through the nearly completed Sydney Wall in less than an hour, it is jaeger Striker Eureka that protects the city. The PPDC realises that, with a wall being broken down so quickly, the jaegers are indeed what the world needs. Though they continue to fund the walls, and most of the money is moved back to the Jaeger Programme.
New Shatterdomes are built around the world, new Jaegers assembled, and old ones are restored. The top teams in the world — Striker Eureka, Cherno Alpha, and Crimson Typhoon — are transferred to the Hong Kong shatterdome, where they attempt to close the breach while also defending the coast from any immediate dangers. Raleigh Becket is also transferred to Hong Kong, where he has been propositioned to step back into the cockpit for the first time since his brother’s death.
With the threat of kaiju attacks becoming more frequent, the Jaeger Programme is running full-force once more. Though it may seem like it’s working now, no one knows what the world is in store for just yet.
