The Pentagon is currently developing a new war game that will pit the United States against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a group that is trying to take control of large swaths of Iraq and the Levant.
The Pentagon says the game will show the capabilities of the U.S. military, and that it will be “faster, cheaper, and more realistic than ever before.”
The Pentagon said that the game, which is being developed by a contractor, will use existing video game platforms such as PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and will also be “accessible and easy to use for anyone with a broadband connection.”
The game, according to Pentagon officials, will be a simulation of how military aircraft, including F-15E and F-16 fighters, would perform in real combat, but the real-world scenario will be different.
“The game will also use new, cutting-edge technology to help ensure that all the capabilities and challenges of a real-life combat environment are represented in the game,” the Pentagon said in a statement.
The military says that the simulation will “provide a realistic simulation of a U. S. combat mission that will allow the military to better understand how the forces of ISIL can respond to real-time and real-space threats and challenges.”
The U.N. says that it is currently studying how the game might be used in conjunction with a new U.K. government-funded initiative called Future War Games.
“Future War Games aims to help the U,N.
and other international organizations prepare for a post-conflict world by giving them an insight into the impact of military conflicts on the environment and human populations,” the Future War Game Project said in an advisory to the U and N. “We hope that Future WarGames will help improve the resilience of local and global environments as well as the resilience and resilience of nations.”
It is not clear how the new war simulation will work, and how much of the simulation’s content will be released publicly.
A spokesperson for the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) told Ars that Future Warrior is currently under a “pre-production phase” and that DARPA is “working with a number of partners to continue development.”
DARPA has been working on a version of Future Warrior for years.
“During the pre-production period, we will develop and test a full game for the military and non-military audiences,” the spokesperson said.
“It is currently undergoing a number, and some of the systems are already operational.”
The Future Warrior project is not the only military-themed project underway at DARPA.
DARPA’s Next Generation Warfare Program is developing a simulation called The Battle of the Bulge, which will be published this year.
The game is set in the fictional city of Bulge during World War II.
DARPM’s Next Gen program is tasked with developing a variety of “smart weapons” that can be deployed and deployed at will.
In January, the Defense Advanced Technology Projects Agency announced that it would be developing a military game called War of the Worlds, in which players will have to play as a fictional version of a fictional World War I-era British submarine fleet in an attempt to defeat the fictional enemy.
“War of the World” will be the first in a series of military simulations being developed in the next three years.
