When a real-life city is featured in a video game,the first thing people look out for are the landmarks. Here are some screenshots I took from the trailer of some recognizable structures. Comment/link if you identify some more.
1. Burj Al Arab & Palm Island
It's the first thing shown in the trailer; the iconic 7-star hotel and the man-made island.
2. Emirates Towers
Emirates Towers, also known as the Twin Towers.
3. Construction Site
One of the most ubiquitous sights in Dubai.
4. Jameel Building
Haven't heard of it, but evidently onesixthree has. Click on the image for his screenshot of the building which means beautiful in Arabic and is situated in the Dubai Marina region.
Emirates Towers can be seen.
6. And at last, Burj Khalifa !
The trailer shows a U.S soldier walking along a road leading to Burj Dubai and guess what's hanging off the lampposts ? Human bodies. And as if that wasn't bad enough, you'll be shooting helicopters and you guessed it : it crashes into the Burj.
