Kuma\War Launches Iran Hostage Rescue

Newest Mission Coincides With The 25th Anniversary Of The
Historic Iran Hostage Crisis

New York (April 30, 2004) – To coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Iran Hostage Crisis, Kuma\War, an online game service featuring accurate re-creations of real-world events,has launched its newest mission, Iran Hostage Rescue, based upon the April 24, 1980 failed attempt to rescue 53 American hostages held in Tehran.

Built from the U.S. military’s actual mission plan, players command a squad of Delta Force operators, the most deadly and well-trained special forces outfit in the world. While the historical mission ended in tragedy in the Iranian Desert, Kuma\War re-creates the Iran hostage night rescue mission as it was intended to occur; players will secretly enter Tehran, storm the U.S. embassy, rescue the hostages and bring them home -- any way they can.

In accurately reconstructing the 1980 mission, Kuma\War utilized contemporary images, official documents, and personal accounts, including interviews with Antonio Mendez, former CIA officer and author of Spy Dust. Mr. Mendez received the CIA Intelligence Star for Valor in 1980 for secretly exfiltrating from Tehran 6 Americans hidden in the Canadian embassy. An interview with Mr. Mendez is featured in the video news show that accompanies the Kuma\War Iran Hostage Rescue mission.

In the coming weeks, subscribers can expect a second Iran Hostage Crisis mission which further explores the doomed rescue, and another intense Fallujah mission: Fallujah Abizaid Attack, which re-creates the February assassination attempt made on General John P. Abizaid, commander of all U.S. forces in the Middle East.
