I thought it be good to do a forum thread since a few of you have asked in game what is with AA's overmatch gametype in the upcoming (and seriously delayed) 2.7 patch to America's Army.
This year will mark the last two patches, 2.7 and 2.8, for the current edition of America's Army and 2.7 will finaly add a Co-Op gametype to offer players an alternative to fighting against other humans. I do not know as of yet if honor points will be awarded to players who go this path by completion of the objectives as a team, but if so then this is a welcomed change to the mix. If the AI in the co op side is anything like AA's Rise of a Soldier title for the Xbox, then it should be a bit of cheap free fun.
The page will cover the new weapons systems for the US forces, one of the new mission locations, and offers a flash video (sorry for those who hate flash :P) showing off the new materials.
This is a SITrep over the AI coverage over the 2.7 package and also details the transition from the Unreal Tech Engine 2.0 to the 3.0 build to create the next America's Army squel.
