“Yes, a tragedy, Yes it will help to attract attention, is it enough to create a game?” — asks one commenter.
A similar opinion is voiced users and other resources, where was posted the announcement. “It is impossible for this game to do. On 11 September the game did,” talk in the comments on the portal RiotPixels.
“They had no reason to use the name “Kursk” tragedy on the submarine — not the plot, which is often used in games. The only reason to give a reference to this tragedy — the desire to prelaminates,” said the visitor portal PCGamer.
