Free official first person shooter game of the American ArmyExcellence Award
America’s Army (AA) is a free gaming project developed by the United States Army. America’s Army was conceived by Colonel Casey Wardynski, who envisioned “using computer game technology to provide the public a virtual Soldier experience that was engaging, informative and entertaining.”
The PC version 1.0, subtitled Recon, was released in 2002. Since then there have been several versions with the most recent being America’s Army 3. All versions have been developed on the Unreal Engine. The game is financed by the U.S. government and distributed by free download.
The effort proved successful with “more than 8 million registrations and 3 billion player rounds” as of March 2007. One teenager was quoted saying the game “provides great information. This would probably spark an interest. I don’t know how I would have found out so much some other way.”
