New York (August 3, 2004) - Kuma\War, the revolutionary game online that allows players to experience real events from the war weeks after they occur releases its 17th online game mission, Baghdad Mahdi Army Assault. Based on an actual U.S. Army event on the night of June 29, 2004, this game online pits the 1st Cavalry Division against al- Sadr militants.
It is nighttime, the day after the transfer of sovereignty to the new Iraqi government. In Sadr City a U.S. Army patrol searches the darkness with the imaging systems of its Bradley Fighting Vehicles. But heavily armed Mahdi Army insurgents are waiting for their opportunity to strike and, like the real 1st Cavalry patrol, players must use the Bradley’s full capabilities to repel the attack and defeat the enemy in this Kuma\War game online.
As in all Kuma\War missions, detailed information from national news sources and unclassified Department of Defense files give an in depth look at these real world events and provides historical context.
"Kuma's war coverage provides a powerful lens with which to view the war and make informed judgments about it," said Keith Halper, CEO Kuma Reality Games. "It includes extensive background intel, interviews with military experts and the unique 'boots on the ground' experience that only Kuma can deliver. Our viewers ‘get’ the war at a deeper level."
Every month, subscribers can expect to receive at least three new missions further exploring the explosive situation in Iraq and elsewhere in the war on terror. Upcoming Kuma\War games online include deadly clashes with al Zarqawi militants in Northern Iraq and the ongoing hunt for al Qaeda leaders in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
The Kuma\War service is available for free download and players can demo the game online at www.kumawar.com or purchase a subscription for only $9.99 monthly.
