China's army develops 'online war game'
After setting up its own cyber-warfare team, China's military has now developed its first online war game aimed at improving combat skills and battle awareness, state press said Wednesday.
"Glorious Mission" is a first-person shooter game that sends players on solo or team missions armed with high-tech weapons, the China Daily reported.
Weapons used in the game are part of the actual arsenal of China's People's Liberation Army, it added. The final version of the game, which took nearly three years to develop and test, was launched on June 20.
"I think it is possible the game will be made open online for Chinese military fans to download and play," an unnamed PLA press officer was quoted as saying.
