America's Army on the Move

U.S. Army Introduces New Roles and Missions to America's Army PC Game is the press release sent along by Uncle Sam to outline future plans for his America's Army game (interestingly, they no longer seem to be referring the shooter portion of the game as America's Army: Operations, and it's been quite some time since we can recall a reference to America's Army: Soldiers, the game's planned RPG component). The release offers details on plans to introduce new classes (including special forces operatives), new training, as well as cross platform support. Here are a couple of excerpts outlining these plans:

The U.S. Army today unveiled new roles and missions that it will incorporate into its highly successful America's Army PC game. These roles and missions, which debuted today at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, include Special Forces, Stryker Combat Brigade and Combat Medic missions.

With these mission packs the game will expand to include new roles presented in both single and multiplayer formats. Players will explore progressive individual and collective training events within the game. Once they successfully completed these events they will advance to multiplayer operations in small units. These new roles include skills ranging from Combat Medic to Special Forces Engineer Sergeant.

Building upon the Game's successful deployment, the Army has expanded support for America's Army to new platforms and operating systems. In June, America's Army is planned for Apple Macintosh. In July, the Army will release both client and server versions of America's Army for Linux. The Army has also established relationships and strategic plans (to) take America's Army to entirely new platforms.
