Newest Release Includes Three Multiplayer Maps
– Allows Players To Experience Real Military Tactical Scenarios
New York (June 7, 2004) – Kuma\War,
the revolutionary new online game service that allows players to
experience re-creations of real world military events weeks after
they occur via advanced gaming technology, has launched a pack of
three tactical exercises designed for multiplayer and created by
Kuma military advisor Staff Sergeant Dan Snyder and a team of award
winning multiplayer map designers.
Kuma\War’s latest release demonstrates basic military squad
tactics and scenarios including ambushes and challenges in different
types of terrain. Each of the three mission maps in the multiplayer
pack features detailed tactical commentary from Sergeant Snyder
to prepare players prior to embarking on each tactical situation.
The first map, Patrol Ambush re-creates a typical ambush situation
that U.S. troops might experience. Players are lured into
a ‘”kill-sack” (trap) and learn the tactics required
to survive. The other maps, Desert Town and Coastline focus on challenges
soldiers face due to varying terrain and climate. Players
learn squad-based tactics and how to adapt them to a wide range
of physical and man-made geographies.
“Sergeant Dan Snyder, formerly of the US Marine Modeling and
Simulation Management Office, was the creator of Marine Doom, and
has first-and knowledge of how the military uses game-like simulations,”
said Keith Halper, CEO, Kuma Reality Games. “Kuma\War brings
these tools out of military labs and puts them into the hands of
the American public.”
In the coming weeks, subscribers can expect to receive more missions
that further explore the explosive situation in Iraq leading up
to the June 30 hand-over of power, including missions in Fallujah
and in Baghdad’s Sadr City. Kuma will also respond to breaking
news events as they occur around the world.
Kuma\War is available online for free download and trial with no
credit card required at www.kumawar.com
or can be purchased for a $9.99 monthly subscription fee.
Kuma Reality Games is offering a free Kuma\War subscription to everyone
with a “.mil” email address until June 30th.
