America's Army: Proving Grounds
Work In Progress
America's Army: Proving Grounds is the sequel to America's Army 3, released in 2013. It is set in the same fictional East European region as America's Army 3, with the background being that the player is an 11B Infantryman practicing combat maneuvers at Joint Training Center Griffin located in the region for future operations.
The game is multiplayer-only and more streamlined to emphasizes small unit tactical maneuvers, but still realistic overall. Like the first game, players always see themselves as the US Army, and see their opponents as the OPFOR faction. Weapons in the OPFOR armory can only be picked up from dead enemies and are otherwise unavailable. While US Army weapons and optics are closely modeled after real equipment, OPFOR weapons and optics are stylized portrayals of real weapons and optics.
