Kuma War Hits News Stands

Kuma War Hits News Stands

Kuma Reality Gameshas launched its first reality-based game, "KumaWar." Created using real-world missions from breaking news events, the subscription-based online service is a tactical, squad-based game that brings top stories from the war on terror directly to the consumer's PC.

KumaWar delivers real-world news events in a way never-before-seen in the world of video or computer games. Just weeks after a military event occurs somewhere around the world, KumaWar will create a re-enactment of the conflict, using advanced 3D gaming tools, and deliver the mission to a subscriber's computer. At launch, KumaWar will give players a boots on the ground experience of recent military missions, such as Uday and Qusay Hussein's Last Stand in Mosul, Iraq; Operation Anaconda in Afghanistan; and an amazing recreation of a large-scale bank robbery thwarted by American troops in Samarra, Iraq, November 2003.

Downloaded via a broadband connection, in addition to new missions, subscribers will receive automatic updates and intelligence information on a weekly basis to assist them in battle. KumaWar will launch with five missions, and then add additional assignments in the weeks to follow, such as part two of the Samarra Bank Heist and the Korean Spy Sub Incident: ROK The Enemy Within.

Prior to embarking on each mission, players are given intelligence gathered from around the world, in the form of a video news show, technical specifications for the weapons used, a chronology of the battle, and even a satellite photo of the battlefield. Expert military analysis is also provided to the player, to give a strategic and tactical perspective of the historical event. Sources for the intelligence include the Associated Press, declassified Department of Defense documents and a decorated team of military advisors.

As a salute to the men and women in uniform who have served their countries, Kuma will also proudly donate USD 1 of all paid subscriptions to The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, which was created to assist the families of the nation's fallen heroes killed in duty.

In further support of military personnel, during its launch promotion, Kuma Reality Games is offering a free subscription to everyone with a .mil email address.
