GTA Director’s ‘1979’ Gets CNN Write Up – New Details Revealed

Posted By | On 12th, Aug. 2011 Under Industry News, News

First revealed in a February interview with RT News, not a huge amount is really known about 1979. 1979: The Game is the brain child of Iranian born Navid Khonsari, former Cinematic Director for Rockstar, and is an ambitious open world title set at the height of Iran’s Islamic Revolution. A recent article posted on CNN goes into great detail about the game’s “baton pass” narrative which will have you playing as an American/Iranian translator and then a Student Protester. Gameplay will start as a straightforward third person shooter with a few language puzzles thrown in, you are a translator after all. When you take control of the protester though “the game changes, and now your mission is to get this small military group to Tehran, but nonviolently, clandestinely. You want the American hostages out of Iran because you want the country to focus on rebuilding itself, and you’ve heard all these rumors about a war with Iraq coming.”

The game, alas, is, according to Khonsari,”at least a year and a half away from release.”  The game’s core concept seems to be exploring the grey moral areas in real world situations; the title’s prospective tagline is “There are no good guys.”
