Today Ubisoft and the U.S. Army announced that Red Storm Entertainment, in collaboration with the Army, will launch America's Army: True Soldiers, exclusively for the Xbox 360 in September 2007.
The multiplayer feature is a key feature of America's Army: True Soldiers with eight maps developed by Red Storm Entertainment and full Xbox LIVE online gaming service Clan support, so teams will be able to quickly jump online and compete. Players will immerse themselves within the true infantry experience of a modern Soldier via the graphical prowess of the Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Warfighter 2 game engine. As a Soldier in single-player mode, advance through your career and take on roles such as Rifleman, Grenadier, Automatic Rifleman and Sniper. Red Storm and the Army are working together to make sure that the America's Army: True Soldiers gameplay experience is an authentic Army experience.
The America's Army: True Soldiers game accurately portrays the values that guide Soldiers in the U.S. Army, by specifically incorporating gameplay based on mission accomplishment, teamwork, leadership, rules of engagement and respect for life and property. Just like in real combat, honor and respect must be earned, and in the game, the Play-Lead-Recruit feature allows players to earn respect as they move up through the ranks and become true leaders. Teammates can award points to other team members who play honorably and jump in when the mission is on the line.
The game will feature high-tech equipment, including a Blue Force Tracker that improves recognition of targets while increasing information to the player. Additional Intel will be gathered by the Raven UAV and displayed on their Blue Force Tracker. AI teammates can share Intel via in-game voice-over.
