First Mission In The Series, Freedom's Heroes: Rangers Lead The Way Pays
Tribute To U.S. Army Rangers
New York (September 1, 2004) - Kuma\War, the revolutionary online game that blends news coverage with interactive game technology to deliver
powerful re-creations of real events weeks after they occur, has launched its first mission in the new Freedom's Heroes series to pay
tribute to U.S. Army Rangers who continue to fight to protect our nation's freedoms.
Re-creating stories of individuals who have been honored for their heroism, the first mission to launch in the series, Freedom's Heroes:
Rangers Lead the Way, demonstrates the difficult job that U.S. Army Rangers face daily. These elite teams have been operating in small units
and often behind enemy lines along the Eastern Afghanistan, Pakistani border since the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom.
In this mission, you are with the US Army's 75th Ranger Regiment operating near Spera, Afghanistan when well-armed unyielding Taliban and
al Qaeda fighters ambush your convoy. You must repel the attack and then move into the mountains to take the fight to the enemy, all while
dealing with severe terrain and restrictive light conditions.
In addition to the playable mission, Kuma also provides a video news show that provides expert military analysis, historical context and an
in depth look at the U.S. Rangers.
"We developed the Freedom's Heroes Series to highlight the exemplary actions of the brave men and women who have chosen to serve their
country," said Keith Halper, CEO Kuma Reality Games. "By enabling players to step into the boots of these heroic men and women, we hope
they gain a better understanding of the skills and sacrifice of American soldiers."
Every month, subscribers can expect to receive at least three new missions further exploring the tense situation in Iraq. Upcoming Kuma\War missions include stories honoring individual war heroes in the Freedomís Heroes Missions series and the ongoing hunt for al Qaeda leaders in the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan.
