America's Army: Proving Grounds, the latest multiplayer PC shooter produced by the United States Army, is now in open beta. You can download the game through Steam and start playing now.

Proving Grounds centers around a war in the fictional Republic of the Ostregals. The players are infantrymen practicing their urban combat manuevers at a training facility called JTC Griffin. This training will teach them to be members of a Long Ranged Combined Arms - Recon unit. The storyline behind the game is chronicled through a comic book series on America's Army's website.

Players will learn small unit tactics through 6-on-6 Battledrill Exercises. They'll then use these skills in 12v12 battles called Forward Line Operations. The maps for these battles include "Hospital" and "Bridge," favorites from previous America's Army titles. During the firefighters, players will wield a number of real-world weapons including the Remington 870 MCS and M1EBR-RI.

Like other games in the AA series, Proving Grounds aims to provide a realistic shooter experience. It doesn't take much to die so you have to work with your team in order to stay alive. A hardcore mode will provide advanced players with an added challenge. Still, it sounds like the developers have tried to make the game accessible to a wide range of players.

“We took a back to basics approach that highlights a move, shoot, communicate system within a fun gaming experience that echoes teamwork-based Army training,” said Marsha Berry, project manager for the game. “Just like in the Army, America’s Army: Proving Grounds focuses on creating elite, well trained Soldiers that will complete the missions as a fine-tuned team beginning with smaller, focused exercises and advancing up to larger, more complex exercises.”
