Konami Announces Game Based on 2004 Fallujah Battle

In a somewhat unusual move for a top-tier video game publisher, Konami has announced a game based on the war in Iraq – while U.S. troops are still deployed there.

The Los Angeles Times reports that Six Days in Fallujah will be published in 2010. North Carolina-based Atomic Games is handling the development chores. The company is experienced with military game designs.

Of Six Days in Fallujah, Atomic Games President Peter Tamte told the L.A. Times:

For us, the challenge was how do you present the horrors of war in a game that is also entertaining, but also gives people insight into a historical situation in a way that only a video game can provide? Our goal is to give people that insight, of what it’s like to be a Marine during that event, what it’s like to be a civilian in the city and what it’s like to be an insurgent…

GP: Not many details seem to be available at this point. A Wikipedia entry which relies heavily on the May issue of GamePro indicates that the game will be available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. A multiplayer component appears to be included. It’s unclear at this time whether online games will require players to fight as insurgents against U.S. forces.

    uh, you 2.  I wasn’t thinking of GHOST Squad 2 as a light/rail shooter with light gun.  I was thinking of the game as a traditional FPS shooting game in the style of tactical-shooting game ala RAinbow Six.

    But then SEGA would need to make a special peripheral for both consoles, and how would a lightgun work on an HDTV anyway? They’d prolly put it on  Wii again… I’d get it. (I have the original, it’s fun for a quick ‘pick up and play’ arcade title.)

    Oh wow, now Konami is going "Call of Duty 4" by making a Iraq war game.  I hope Konami will put Solid Snake as a Easter Egg, or a cameo.  What’s next:

    Namco Bandai making a Ace Combat: Modern Warfare (heavily influenced by Call of Duty 4 and Tom Clancy’s HAWX)

    Sega making a GHOST Squad 2 for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC and gameplay being similar to Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon.

    Intelligent System and Nintendo making Advance War: Modern day tactical warfare. Which take place in the real world and is called the turn-based "Command & Conquer: Generals"
