Take A Close Look At The US Army’s Dismounted Soldier Training System

The US Army’s Dismounted Soldier Training System sounds like one of the greatest shooters you’ll never play. Unless, that it, you’re willing to commit to a 4 or 8 year contract. That’s because the ‘game‘ is, or rather will be, exactly what it says on the box. Still in-development by Intelligent Decisions, the game is the result of a 57 million dollar grant from the Military to create a combat simulator more realistic than anything previously seen. If it works as promised, Dismounted Soldier Training System will feature realistic vehicles and stunningly accurate environmental elements including weather.

Dismounted Soldier Training System is built on CryEngine 3 (CryEngine is also used to make the Far Cry series). Two new videos have made their way online, both demonstrating that learning to be a soldier is a hell of a lot nerdier than in the days of Full Metal jacket*.

Here’s the in-engine cinematic video:

And here’s a video showing off the technology behind the game.

Does not look very diffrent from most of the FPS games i’v seen around.

And im fairly sure they copy pasted some of the gameplay from CoD4 (specificly the AC130 or whatever its called).

Nope, they didn’t, open games like ArmA II feature fully working AC130′s. This game/sim is probably similar to the ArmA series.

I read somewhere they were using ARMA 2 for military training, could be wrong though. This looks very similar.

Wow, SO REAL. It’s like I’m actually in a war zone shooting at kids with bombs strapped to their chest and one of my friends crawling to get to safety with his legs blown off.

It would be great if they made this available for consumers/recruitment purposes… Btw, CryEngine (1) was FarCry, but FC2 was not. Crysis 2 used CryEngine 3.
