TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “The 10-Degree Latitude is the second video game introduced to the market by the army and has had many improvements, including a changed scenario and LAN and online playability,” Lieutenant Commander of the Army of Cultural and Public Relations Affairs Seyyed Mohammad Reza Vahedi said in the revealing.
He expressed hopefully with these enhancements our game can spread across to other nations.
Vahedi said that the first version of the game, ‘Battle in Gulf of Aden’ which was unveiled in 2012, was the bestselling game in Iran, pointing out Iran's superiority in the soft war against their opposition.
The ‘Battle in the Gulf of Aden’ video game which was released in June 2012 running on the powerful Unity Engine with enhanced graphics and audio displayed the Iranian Navy's powerful presence in international waters and their success in defeating pirates.
The player of the game took the role of an Iranian commando who should fight pirates in the Gulf of Aden destroying their hideouts in a bid to find and kill the buccaneers' ringleader.
Iran released its first three-dimensional video game, the Age of Heroes, in 2009, which was designed based on the stories narrated in the Persian epic poet Ferdowsi's magnum opus, Shahnameh.
