The United States Army isn’t the only military outfit that has a video game; the Chinese People’s Liberation Army has apparently helped develop a similar first-person shooter alongside Chinese game development studio Wuxi Giant Interactive Group.
In development for nearly two years, the military simulation follows the daily grind of a typical CPLA soldier. The scenario takes players through the paces, learning various military tactics and culminates in a large-scale military battle. The game is called Mission of Honor and offers several modes including basic training, solo missions and team-based combat.
We assume the goal of Mission of Honor is similar to that of America’s Army: as a recruitment and early training tool for young males in their late teens.
The game will be released soon, though how it will be distributed is still a mystery.
