In case you didn’t know, Attack Online 2 is the number one 3D FPS in Cambodia! Find out what all the hype is about right here.
Looking at the esports lineup for the 2023 SEA Games, you’ll see Attack Online 2 among the list of familiar titles. But, if the game sounds unfamiliar to you, don’t worry. The game has been growing wholly within Cambodia among local gamers, which is why it’s one of the disciplines in this year’s Southeast Asian Games.
With that in mind, let’s shed a little more light on this niche title.
Attack Online 2 (shortened to AK2) actually didn’t even start out with that name.
Originally known as Mission Against Terror, Kingsoft was its developer and it launched on July 8, 2011, in North America and Europe. The game is a fast-paced first-person shooter which plays similarly to that of Call of Duty games.
Later on, it was released to other countries under different names such as Xshot in Thailand, and Mission Against Terror 2 in Malaysia and Singapore. But, among all its editions, the Cambodian version saw the most success.
Now, the rest is history.
Attack Online 2 in 2023
More than 10 years later, the game is still going strong in Cambodia. The game gets frequent updates and even has a very competitive scene in the country.
It’s clear that Cambodian gamers still love the game even now, and because of its popularity in the country, the community expects big things from their representatives in the 2023 SEA Games.
As for whether it’s really a sequel to a previous game? Your guess is as good as ours.
