The Russian Military History Society will be in charge of the video game project, beginning with a title detailing the inception of Russian military aviation during World War I, THR reports.
"A video game has to have not only an entertainment value, but it also has to teach and be conducive to patriotic education," Arseny Mironov, an aid to the Russian Culture Minister, told Izvestiya, a Russian newspaper.
"The RMHS feels the "Russian warrior" has been portrayed wrongly in past games, namely Company of Heroes II. In Relic's RTS title, Russian soldiers are portrayed as "criminals," the RMHS says, and the title also isn't translated into Russian. The culture ministry said that foreign games like this can "discredit the Russian soldier."
