first reported yesterday, today marks the release of America’s Army: Special Forces, a new version of the recruiting tool/computer game produced by the U.S. Army. The game is now available from links on the America’s Army Web site, both as an updater for existing 1.9 users and also as a full version download.
Also known as America’s Army 2.0, the game puts players in the role of an army recruit who goes through basic and advanced training to become a member of a special forces team. Once your training is complete, you can participate with other AA:SF players. This is no ordinary first-person shooter, however — each mission is designed to emulate precisely what real-world soldiers train to do, and the online game finding service employs a ladder ranking system that will penalize you if you goof off or shoot your comrades.

the download page
on the America’s Army Web site only listed Happy Puppy as a download resource both for the update and for the full version download. Past versions of the game was also mirrored by MacGamefiles.com and other resources. The official site noted that other mirrors were expected to come online, however, so make sure to check with the site frequently to see if you can find it elsewhere.
