Currently in closed beta, Arctic Combat appears to be set in the Middle East, despite its title. That's not all that looks fishy about this free-to-play military shooter. One of its maps, "Sand Storm," is almost a direct copy of de_dust2 from Counter-Strike. See for yourself in that video above.

PC Gamer notes that some corridor dimensions and crate emplacements are different, but the overall layout, including the choke points, remain the same. The rest of the game, well, looks like a straight ripoff of Call of Duty, not that that's a real crime or anything. Arctic Combat is made by Webzen, which is based in South Korea.
