San Francisco â€“ July 29, 2005 â€“ Ubisoft today announced the launch of the Americaâ€™s ArmyÂ®: Rise of a Soldierâ„¢ website, www.riseofasoldier.com, which will allow browsers catch a glimpse of the experience that awaits them when Americaâ€™s Army heads to consoles for the first time this October. The website reflects the amazing work done creating Americaâ€™s Army for consoles by the very talented development team at Secret Level in San Francisco.
Enter the world of the U.S. Army, the worldâ€™s premier land force, where honor and teamwork are the primary weapons against the enemies of freedom.
Built in partnership with the U.S. Army, this game offers the most true-to-life Army experience, allowing you to create a soldier and take him through the high-risk excitement of an Army career. Intense single-player missions and high-adrenaline multiplayer action build the skills of your soldier and advance him through his career.
â€¢ Unique Career mode: Unparalleled character customization allows you to create a soldier and take him throughout his career â€“ from recruit to Special Forces Team Leader.
â€“ Earn experience points in training and combat missions and use them to increase core skills.
â€“ Play as an integrated member of an eight-man fire team at first â€“ then progress in your career to become a Fire Team Leader issuing commands.
â€¢ The only official U.S. Army game on the console: Real Special Forces operatives consult game designers to ensure the highest level of realism in any military game in existence. Authentic weapons, equipment and combat situations come straight from the U.S. Army advisers.
â€¢ Play it your way: Americaâ€™s Army has no linear campaign design; players can choose their own career paths. You can focus on certain Army roles (sniper or grenadier, for example) or experience different roles in your goal to achieve Special Forces.
â€¢ Intense military action: Quick reflexes, smart tactics, and the use of teamwork are mandatory to succeed in Army missions, which plunge you into ultra-realistic combat scenarios.
