Cortez and Corporal Hart, soldiers from 2401 who traveled to different eras to fight the TimeSplitters. Future Perfect placed a heavier emphasis on a linear story, cinematic cutscenes and character-based humor, and follows Cortez as he teams up with characters against the TimeSplitters and a new, human antagonist, mad scientist Jacob Crow.

During the course of the game, Eike travels to several time periods as far back as medieval times, gradually uncovering the connection behind the attempts on his life, the mysterious being who saves him and his own past. The game features several possible endings, depending on the player's actions and choices that alter the timeline.

The director of the project, Dr. Aiden Krone, takes the Alpha Suit and travels into the past. Once there he alters the timeline, placing himself as the ruler of the Krone Magistrate that controls a dystopic world.
