Bringing Realism to Combat Gaming
Combat gaming has been a popular genre among gamers for decades. From classic titles like Doom, Quake, and Counter-Strike to modern ones like Call of Duty and Battlefield, gamers have always been drawn to the fast-paced, shoot-em-up gameplay that these games offer. However, despite the advancements in graphics and game mechanics, many of these games still lack the realism that real combat situations offer. That’s where ‘With Them: Frontlines’ comes in. This game, developed by ORE System in Austin, TX, USA, aims to revolutionize combat gaming by bringing realism to the forefront.
The game is based on real military veterans and their experiences, providing players with a realistic and immersive combat experience. The aim of the game is not just to entertain but also to raise awareness about veteran mental health and reduce the high suicide rate among veterans of the video game generation. By utilizing technology, particularly video games, ‘With Them: Frontlines’ showcases the stories of veterans who have shared their experiences, and encourages others to do the same. This initiative aims to promote a more informed conversation with healthcare providers and enhance the gameplay experience.
One of the standout features of ‘With Them: Frontlines’ is its ability to sync with an application that connects to wearables and smartphones to collect data to share with healthcare providers. This facilitates a more direct discussion between patient and provider, and the information collected can be used as a part of the initial screening process to establish baselines for treated patients and evaluated throughout applied therapeutics to gauge the response to other therapies. This integration of technology and gameplay not only enhances the gaming experience but also has a real-world impact on the lives of veterans.
Immersive FPS Experience with Real Military Veterans
The multiplayer first-person shooter portion of the game provides a gameplay experience similar to Call of Duty (CoD) but features real military veterans as playable characters. This adds a level of authenticity to the game that is missing from most other combat games. The veterans’ experiences have been incorporated into the game, and each playable character has their own unique story and abilities. This not only adds to the realism of the gameplay but also provides the players with a glimpse into the lives of these brave men and women who have served their country.
The single-player campaign provides a first-person experience of what a real military veteran experienced in their own words. Through storytelling and first-hand accounts by real military veterans, a fully immersive game environment, and storyline is created. This integrates audio, video, and represented gameplay to recreate the event for the player. The game also features a playable mini-documentary to allow the player to “be there” and understand what each featured veteran experienced.
‘With Them: Frontlines’ is not just a game, but an experience that provides players with a unique perspective on combat and the lives of those who have served their country. The integration of real-life experiences with gameplay creates an immersive experience that is not only entertaining but also impactful. By playing ‘With Them: Frontlines’, gamers not only get to experience a realistic combat environment, but they also get to support a worthy cause and make a real difference in the lives of veterans.
‘With Them: Frontlines’ is not just a game, but a revolution in combat gaming. By bringing realism and authenticity to the forefront, the game offers a unique experience that is both entertaining and impactful.
