In Mosul: The al Qaeda Connection, The U.S. Army’s efforts to flush out insurgents in Iraq yields a terrorist safe house connected to bin Laden ally, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi. Zarqawi, leader of the Zarqawi terror network, has either claimed responsibility or been blamed for most of the major attacks and kidnappings in Iraq in recent months, including the beheading of American Nick Berg. In this mission, player’s will command a 101st Airborne Division fire team as they move through hostile urban terrain and take down the terror cell.

Armed with advice from U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Dan Snyder and other background information from Kuma’s team of military experts, in Mosul: The al Qaeda Connection players must use proper squad tactics to clear rooms and secure buildings as they experience MOUT (Military Operations in Urban Terrain). The intense firefights require a combination of good discipline and fast reflexes as Mosul: The al Qaeda Connection displays first-hand the multi-faceted, split-decision events real-world soldiers experience every day.

“Our goal at KumaWar is to provide a unique window into real war news. We offer our subscribers information on key events from the war using an original news show, wire service videos, intel packs, maps and satellite images and advice from military staff advisors that they otherwise would not have access to,” said Kuma Reality Games CEO Keith Halper. “No other computer game online provides the type of authentic combat experiences within a game environment that we can.”

Every month, online subscribers can expect to receive at lease three new missions that further explore the explosive situation in Iraq, including downloadable game missions in Baghdad's Sadr City and more deadly clashes with al- Zarqawi militants. The KumaWar online game service will also portray the border region between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The KumaWar online game service is available for free download and game demo at <> or can be purchased for a $9.99 monthly subscription fee. As a salute to the men and women in uniform who have served their countries, Kuma Reality Games will donate $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.
