November 15, 2007 - Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, and the U.S. Army announced that America's Army®: True Soldiers, exclusively for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft is now available in retail stores nationwide at the manufacturers suggested retail price of $59.99 - the game is rated "T" for Teen.
America's Army: True Soldiers takes full advantage of the multiplayer experience featuring 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 Advanced Warfighter® 2 game engine. As a Soldier in single-player mode, players will advance through their 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 U.S. Army Soldiers 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 honor points to other team members who play honorably and jump in when the mission is on the line. As players accumulate honor points, they earn America's Army reward coins that can be redeemed for prizes in the America's Army "Live the Experience" contest that offers unique prizes such as becoming a Golden Knight, a game developer, or a Soldier for a day (http://truesoldiers.americasarmy.com)
America's Army: True Soldiers is going to be a huge multiplayer hit on Xbox LIVE and a compelling feature is how the single-player experience integrates seamlessly into the multiplayer aspect of the game. Single-player accomplishments and skills earned in categories such as Valor, Marksmanship, Stealth and Conditioning, will be upgradeable and then immediately utilized on Xbox LIVE to dominate online.
