France may not see eye to eye with the US's current foreign policy, but France-based publisher Ubisoft apparently sees no reason not to propagate America's Army. Ubisoft today announced it would be bringing America's Army: True Soldier to the Xbox 360 this September. True Soldier marks the second console iteration of the US Army's recruitment-minded tool since Ubisoft struck a deal to publish the wargame back in 2004.
In a fitting move, Ubisoft has tapped military-minded Red Storm Entertainment to develop True Soldier. Red Storm's recent credits include Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Portable. Red Storm and the US Army are hoping to create an authentic, real-world experience in True Soldier, and the Ubisoft-owned developer will be bringing over its GRAW2 engine to help see that happen.
True Soldier will feature both single-player and multiplayer modes. Players can expect to assume the role of a rifleman, grenadier, automatic rifleman, and sniper as they progress their careers in the single-player campaign.
True Soldier's multiplayer mode will feature eight maps, as well as clan support over Xbox Live. In an attempt to add realism, the multiplayer game will also include a respect mechanic, and players can award teammates points for noteworthy gameplay. Also, skills earned in the single-player campaign, such as valor, marksmanship, stealth, and conditioning, will be integrated into the multiplayer portion of the game.
America's Army: True Soldier has been rated T for Teen. No price has yet been announced.
