The Army this week announced it is teaming up with video game publisher Ubisoft and Red Storm Entertainment to launch America's Army: True Soldiers, a game designed exclusively for Microsoft's Xbox 360 system.
The game supports a multiplayer feature, so teams will be able to compete online when it becomes available in September.
Users can also play as single soldiers, taking on individual roles such as rifleman, grenadier or sniper. By role-playing as a soldier, gamers try to learn Army values such as teamwork, leadership, rules of engagement, and respect for life and property.
Rated 'T' for teen, the game will sell for $59.99, like most other Xbox 360 games, said Jaime Borasi, a spokeswoman for Ubisoft.
Launched on July 4, 2002, the America's Army game series gives players a virtual test drive of what it's like to be a soldier, from basic training through desert battlefields. Releases designed for PCs are available at http://www.americasarmy.com.
