The family of late Angolan rebel leader Jonas Savimbi are suing the makers of Call of Duty over his depiction in the best-selling video game, according to a BBC report.
Three of Savimbi’s children accuse Activision Blizzard of defamation by representing him as a “barbarian”.
They are seeking €1m ($1.1m; £0.75m) in damages. Activision said the depiction was “rather favourable”.
Savimbi founded the Unita movement, waging a long civil war with the Angolan government.
Angola became a Cold War battleground, with Unita backed by the US and the apartheid government in South Africa, while Angola’s ruling party was supported by the Soviet Union and Cuba.
The rebel leader was eventually killed in clashes with state forces in 2002.
