Controversial New Videogame Has You Defending Europe From an ISIS Invasion

Have you ever wanted to defend the world from ISIS, but don’t want to join up with a military and actually go fight them? There’s an app for that. 

If you’re on Steam and looking to kill some time, IS Defense drops on April 19th. This game was developed by Destructive Creations. In IS Defense, you play the role of a machine gunner who is defending Europe from an onslaught of terrorists.

The action and explosions make this look like a Michael Bay movie. It has a cinematic feel to it, it’s kind of like if you took one of those 3-4 minute set pieces from a CoD game but stretched it out to be a standalone title. There’s a skill tree where you can earn points to upgrade your weapons.

Here’s the teaser video to give you an idea of what to expect, if you decide to take fight some terror on the shores of Europe: 

Who is going to be checking this out, who is going to pass? Either way, the game is getting attention for its subject matter.

This is from the same team of devs who released ‘Hatred’ last summer, a twin-stick isometric shooter where you play as The Antagonist which is also available on Steam.
