AA3: Every Detail Counts
America’s Army 3 is a game like no other, because of its detailed level of authenticity. Designed, developed, and deployed by the U.S. Army, AA3 will feature realistic training and exciting missions that will test your skills as a virtual member of the world’s most elite land force.
Created on the Unreal 3 engine, AA3 will introduce new MOSs and feature new ways to preplan missions and specialized training that unlocks new abilities, new weapons, and new technologies.
AA3 will also highlight realistic aspects of Army life by featuring Soldier environments such as barracks, Army posts, and deployed environments. The game will allow you to progress through a true-to-life Army career, resulting in a more customized player experience. In addition, AA3 will offer players new insights into Army life while making the game easier to download, install, and play. Only the Army can bring you the most comprehensive and realistic first-person action, military-based game ever created.

Introducing the America’s Army Mentor Program (AAMP)
In what we believe to be an innovation in gaming, we have recruited some of the most skilled players from the America’s Army community to act as mentors for new players joining the game. Inspired by the teamwork and training integral to success in the Army, mentors will offer tips to new players, including basic “map survival skills,” affording players the best chance for success while operating as part of a team. In addition, mentors will be available outside of scheduled sessions to assist players who require additional instruction. Sessions will be conducted on official U.S. Army servers and concentrate on specific maps in which all players, both new and old, are welcome to participate.
Complementing the existing technical support available, both on America’s Army IRC (AAIRC) and the Forums, the AAMP will enhance the level of support provided to players and ensure that all members of the AA Community have the most enjoyable experience possible.
Keep an eye on the New Players Forum, and be one of the first to sign up and train with the best of the best.
