Americas Army: Proving Grounds To Launch This Summer
Huntsville, AL (August 14, 2013) -- The U.S. Army today announced that Americas Army: Proving Grounds, the next version of its official Army game, will launch on August 29, 2013 on Steam. The new Americas Army: Proving Ground website (http://aapg.americasarmy.com) features the games first trailer, as well as a registration form for players to reserve their Soldier name for the game.
As with its predecessors, Americas Army: Proving Grounds (AA: PG) showcases the Army by emphasizing Army Values, teamwork, training and completing the objectives through gameplay that reflects the Soldiers Creed. Bringing the best features of the previous versions to a new Americas Army environment, AA: PG stresses small unit tactical maneuvers and training that echoes true-to-life Army scenarios. AA: PG reflects the current day Army by focusing on these smaller self-contained, full spectrum units that can carry out a variety of objectives during missions.
In the game, players will experience the type of positional tactical training that U.S. Soldiers encounter at a real Army MOUT (military operations on urban terrain) site. Set in a fictional country, The Republic of the Ostregals, players are in the role of an 11B Infantryman practicing combat maneuvers at JTC Griffin, a fabricated training environment created by Conex modular containers and found materials. This training is crucial to the players success as part of a Long Range Combined Arms Recon (LRCA-R) unit, a full spectrum capable team that embarks on special operations missions behind enemy lines.
AA: PG features several training exercises designed to sharpen small unit maneuver skills. Battledrill Exercises (BDX) are small engagements of 6 players vs. 6 players. These fast-paced maps focus on the basic movements and maneuvers, allowing players to learn how the enemy might react and adjust their strategies for future engagements. The game also features Forward Line Operation (FLO) training for 12 vs. 12 players. These larger mission-based exercises require players to use several skills learned in their Battledrills to achieve success.
We built Americas Army: Proving Grounds to appeal to novice as well as experienced Americas Army players, said Marsha Berry, Project Manager for Americas Army. For AA fans we are bringing back some of the much loved maps from AA2 and also introducing a new map style thats smaller and more focused, allowing players to be much more thoughtful and strategic in their gameplay. For new AA players, the intuitive style of gameplay will allow players to gain experience and confidence much easier. Our emphasis on teamwork will allow new players to succeed, and allow experienced players a new level of depth in how they wish to strategize with their clans and train for competition.
Setting the stage for AA: PG is the Americas Army Comics series (http://comics.americasarmy.com/) that lets readers further explore the Americas Army storyline and delve deep into character plots of Soldiers lives when deployed or at home. The comics are available through the Americas Army website and Americas Army Comics App (iTunes and Google Play) as well as through IDW on websites and for mobile devices through the IDW and comiXology apps, Apple iBooks, and on the Nook and Kindle among others.
The comics tell the saga of American forces deployed to Czervenia, a tiny foreign nation, in the middle of a chaotic conflict. From a seemingly insignificant nation of Czervenia, President-General Adzic and his army set upon a campaign of annihilation against the neighboring Republic of the Ostregals, setting in motion a mysterious plan that could change the course of world power forever. America's Army must create new experimental combat teams, forged together in secret Proving Grounds, and uncover the General's insidious plot before time runs out. The story furthers the plot for the games missions and maps and gives the player a better understanding of their assignment and the challenges they face. Released today, AA Comic Issue #8 Proving Grounds presents fans with the latest events which will lead directly into players missions when the game launches on August 29th.

This has got to be the lamest trailer for a multi-million dollar piece of army propaganda that was ever made. Taxpayer money in the double-digit million range, and all they can come up with are self-erecting prefab container buildings?

There's not enough sequestration going on (yeah... off to PWEC...)

I didn't care for the trailer either. I think their game developer could have presented something better. I hope the game is good though. I played the first one for awhile but never got into the second one.

well out this week... it's free, I will try it... loved the original, then hated it when they messed with the formula.

of course, after watching other videos on their channel, my hopes aint high... no gameplay videos (weird) but map fly throughs that look like CoD maps... I'm afraid to be disappointed.

I've been part of the Beta and I can tell you, it is the worst junk I've played in a long time. Poor gunplay, doesn't feel very tactical and it just feels cheap for lack of a better word. Also something in the pacing makes it seem like a weird competitive shooter.

The old AA 2.x is still the king.

I think no one know the main purpose of the government behind that policies.I think the legal situation of the country is becoming bad.Even that general public don't get any thing that the government say before the election.
