I know, the name of the game sounds weird, but it is exactly translated word by word. Honorable Duty Online is an upcoming shooter from China, but this is not just any game. It is developed in conjunction with the People’s Liberation Army, which for your info, is the military arm of China’s government. The game started out as a project for military personnel to hone their shooting skills, and since then it was announced Giant Interactive will be publishing the commercialized version.
Developed using actual war experience and tactics provided by military personnel, Honorable Duty Online is the one and only MMOFPS which will have the People’s Liberation Army as the core team. Similar to most shooters, there will be various PvP modes available, including story mode PvE ones going against hostile units, most probably terrorists.
The game is said to be going public so as to heighten the younger generation’s interests in the People’s Liberation Army. With that said, don’t expect Honorable Duty Online to hit the English market. I will be really, really surprised if it does.
