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.
