Iranian Government Effectively Bans The Sale of ArmA 3 in the Country

September 20, 2012 -

Fans of Bohemia Interactive's popular simulation-based military shooter series ArmA in Iran who were hoping to get their hands on the company's next game, ArmA 3, are officially out of luck. Though it's not surprising news that Iran would not approve a game coming out of any region in the world that they deem a threat to their political, social, cultural and religious standards, it is nonetheless a small setback for fans and for Bohemia.

Publication Trend reported the news that the Iran's National Foundation of Computer Games and the government's Revolutionary Guard Corps strongly objected to the game - particularly over the its portrayal of Iranian forces as enemies of NATO. The game features a fictitious scenario in which NATO troops battle against Iranian insurgents.
