Idyllic Greek Island Protests Inclusion in Violent Video Game

The Greek Island of Limnos, home to Hephaestus' forge and some spectacular beaches, is protesting their inclusion in upcoming shooter Arma 3.

The local government says that their island is a "place of peace and creation" and that they don't want it turned into a "scene for violence and battle."

Some of the footage in the upcoming game shows the island's power plant, a hotel and a town in the distance. Another member of the local municipal council raises concerns that their proximity to the Turkish mainland could also raise national security issues.

Don't worry Limnos, chances are this game won't blow your cover.
