The Air Force is partnering with MITRE, a nonprofit national security company, to host an esports tournament it hopes will help better train members for combat.

The game will mix elements of first-person shooters, strategy and puzzle games, according the nonprofit, with players being forced to confront a wide range of attacks from land, air, sea, space or even cyberattacks – sometimes all at once. Players will have to work together to prioritize which area to defend while still keeping the airfield running for combat sorties.

The game is designed to help the Air Force gather data that could help keep real life airbases safe and supplied and save the lives of those tasked with defending them.
