America’s Army: Proving Grounds (AA:PG) is now available in open beta for download! Bringing the best features of the previous versions to a new America’s Army environment, AA: PG stresses small unit tactical maneuvers and training that reflects the current day Army. The America’s Army Comics series has unveiled the storyline that influences the plot for the game’s missions and maps and gives you a better understanding of your assignment and the challenges you will face.
In the game, you can take part in fast-paced Battle Drill Exercises (BDX) for small engagements of 6 players vs. 6 players. These maps focus on the basic movements and maneuvers, allowing you to learn how the enemy might react and adjust your strategies for future engagements Then move on to Forward Line Operation (FLO) training for 12 vs. 12 players. These larger mission-based exercises require you to use several skills learned in your Battle Drills to achieve success. Use new weapons such as M9 and Remington 870 MCS shotgun and M14EBR-RI sniper rifle, which join AA favorites such as the M4/M4A1 and the M249 light machine gun. Other new features include situational awareness, weapon suppression, supported fire system, a hardcore mode, self aid and new versions of AA fan favorite maps including Hospital and Bridge!
