The U.S. Army today released America's Army: Special Forces (Overmatch) v.2.8.2. This version includes two new multiplayer missions and a number of new features. The game can be downloaded from www.americasarmy.com.
Rummage - Rummage takes place in a small urban environment that lends itself to fast paced close quarters battle. In the mission, insurgents are returning to a small town that was formerly their base of operations. Intelligence reports that the insurgent force is returning to the area in order to retrieve vital supplies and materials that were left behind when the 10th Mountain Division first engaged the insurgents in this area. Retrieving these vital supplies will enable the insurgent forces to re-establish a base of operations from which to launch future attacks. Players must follow Rules of Engagement and use force only against positively identified enemies. In addition, they must take care not to harm civilian refugees or cause extensive damage to the local infrastructure.
SF Hospital SE - SF Hospital SE is a revised version of the game's SF Hospital map and is now much more immersive with the inclusion of dynamic new elements including modified objectives and civilian AI. The mission takes place following an ambush by enemy forces. A wounded resistance leader escaped to the local city hospital for treatment. In order to maintain continuity of resistance leadership, players must evacuate the friendly resistance leader to the medevac helicopter that is landing on the city hospital helipad. Enemy forces are trying to ambush the leader so AA team players must be careful to follow Rules of Engagement while protecting the leader and civilians.
Other features in the release include:
