The U.S. Army
announced that America's Army: Proving Grounds
, the next version of its official Army game, is now available in open beta for download via Steam. Players can register their Soldier name for the game at the America’s Army: Proving Ground website
and then jump into the Army action.
As with its predecessors, America's Army: Proving Grounds (AA: PG) showcases the Army by emphasizing Army Values, teamwork, training and completing the objectives through gameplay that reflects the Soldier's Creed.
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 player's 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.
