A previous post from Activision explained Farah’s Urzikstan Liberation Force thus: “Labeled a terrorist organization by the Russian government for their long-standing resistance, Russian soldiers are ordered to make no distinction between the terror group Al-Qatala and the liberation fighters under Farah’s command.”
At the minute, it’s vague if Call of Duty: Modern Warfare‘s physical launch in Russia will certainly be any type of various to the launches anywhere else. The video game is releasing anywhere else, both electronically and also on disc, on Oct. 25.
