AMBUSH! America’s Army Proving Grounds Beta Launches On Steam Today

 

Coming completely unannounced, America’s Army, a completely free to play title that’s been in ever evolving development since the original Unreal Engine 2, has put up America’s Army: Proving Grounds as a beta on Steam today. With this comes the single paragraph blurb that reads exactly:

 

Bringing the best features of the previous versions to a new America’s Army environment, America’s Army: Proving Grounds 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.

 

This doesn’t make the game sound exciting in the least, but the first line is what grabs my attention. To me that reads, “We know AA3 sucked so we’re completely redoing AA2 except on Unreal Engine 3!” I mean, when sf_hospital was comparable to de_dust in popularity and fun, that’s saying something, and America’s Army 2.0 was one of the top online shooters of its era. The fact that it was 100% free to play (there weren’t even microtransactions or upgrades, it was literally 100% free) was just the icing on the cake. Here’s hoping Proving Grounds can recapture some of that long missed magic since AA3 completely dropped the ball.

    The words in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility
    but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look
    great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon.

    check out hard core mode, minimal hud, fast fluid movement, more lethal (run and gun gets you out of the round quickly), you gotta really check your fire or risk shooting a teammate, much more realistic and reminiscent of the classic tactical fps
