|Iranian game makers preparing “Attack on Tel Aviv”||
TEHRAN -- The computer game “Attack on Tel Aviv” will be the response of Iran’s National Foundation for Computer Games (NFCG) to the American game “Battlefield 3”.
“The game will feature Iran’s reaction toward depicting an American soldier on Tehran’s streets in ‘Battlefield 3’,” the head of NFCG, Behruz Minaii told the Persian service of Fars News Agency at 4th Dubai World Game Summit which was held from November 30 to December 1.
Iranian officials have objected to the plot of the American game that underpins the single-player campaign, which involves a U.S. military raid on Tehran targeting the leader of a fictitious terrorist group.
“We have submitted several letters of objection to the developers of the game but we have yet to receive a response,” he mentioned.
He said that they expressed their objections over the game to the officials of Epic Games who were among the sponsors of Dubai World Game Summit.
“However, their reaction was that it is only a game and we should take it easy, but with the game set in Tehran, it is simply not acceptable,” he mentioned.
“The United States is governed by the Zionist Regime so ‘Attack on Tel Aviv’ would make Americans angrier than a game about an attack on Washington,” he added.
He said that a group of Iranian game developers announced that they are ready to produce the game.
Battlefield 3 (commonly abbreviated BF3) is a first-person shooter video game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE and published by Electronic Arts. The game was released in North America on October 25, 2011 and in Europe on October 28.
In some scenes of the game, Americans are shown invading Iran in search of missing nuclear warheads in 2014.
