Since its debut, the America’s Army game has been updated 23 times to feature new technology, new missions and new Army military occupational specialties that players can explore.

In December, the Army released America's Army: Special Forces (Coalition) which introduced the America’s Army Mission Editor. The Mission Editor enables America's Army players to modify existing levels and/or create new levels using any of the existing art, sound, particle effects and gameplay assets created by the development team. With this release, players are able to create missions to give back to the community they love, take their favorite map and enhanced it to match the way they’ve always wanted to play it, and highlight their map building expertise and leadership in the America’s Army community to a global audience.
The staff and developers of America’s Army would like to thank its players, community members and all its partners for their continued support. HOOAH!
