Default America's Army 3

17 June 2009 America's Army 3 drops and is availible for pre-load through Steam.

I've been playing America's Army off and on for about 6 years and 3 looks like it's going to another killer shooter and best of all it's free, but if your American you might feel compelled to join. Lucky for us Canucks we shouldn't have that problem and can play this tax payer funded FPS guilt free.

It would probably include an RCMP campaign fledged with Pacific Mall raids.

Well I have played the beta and it is decent. Great that it is free because I wouldn't buy it. But since it is free I may play the full version from time to time. The graphics are pretty good for a free game.

Haha....Welcome to the reality of military life these days, if you mean the classes on "How to not get Killed" and "Point weapon that way, and this is how you pull the trigger."

Or my favorite, rollover drills.

They have a funny little humvee-looking machine for that that....well, it rolls over.

Funny I'm the opposite I actually found the training portions of the game pretty fun. I'm looking forward to the game, heck it's the right price, and it is a competive shooter.

training in v3 is actually enjoyable. A few minor quirks you need to learn as you go through it but a much more enjoyable experience thus far
