‘Rogue Spear’ to train military to tackle terrorists

Ubi Soft Entertainment is licensing technology used to create counterterrorist simulation game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear to help train soldiers.

The Department of Defense plans to use the game engine —- the programming that powers the game’s logic —- to train troops to fight terrorists in urban terrain. It will be modified to use maps and scenarios requested by the U.S. Army, and will teach strategy and tactics, as opposed to weapons training, Ubi Soft says.
