    Tell me if this sounds familiar; 8v8, no respawn and map specific game modes focused on tactical teamwork.

    America's Army is still in closed beta but should be going public soon. It's totally free to play since your government paid for its development.

    Yes it's first person but put that aside and this game is perfect for SOCOM fans. There are eight maps with four modes. Each map is designed with one mode in mind, you can't play anything but escort on hospitial for example. Gameplay is fucking solid. Unlike other tactical shooters (hi siege), you're not locked into one playstyle. Go slow and methodical, rush and blow up a route, toss your nades then camp or do whatever. Like SOCOM learn the map and do you girl. The biggest difference is when someone dies. You get 1 chance to revive them with minimal health. This really is an awesome addition to gameplay and adds a ton more to the game. As far as gun fights, you can hip fire pretty fucking accurate so get your strafe on. You can also turn on someone if they're aiming chest level. Gawdddddd it's so good.

    Here is some gameplay down below. Skip around in the video and watch a little bit. Tell me you don't see an awesome game here. Best thing is the devs are hella open to feedback. Right now they're working on getting dedicated servers for launch. The gameplay below is peer to peer.

    Definitely looking forward to this, everything you said sounds badass (minus FPS - but I can deal with that). If it's free why not!? R6 is fun, but there is something about it, it just doesn't keep pulling me in. Socom set my standards so high, I will forever be itching for the SOCRACK... I am sure everyone here relates to that.

    Siege never did it for me as a SOCOM replacement. Cool game idea but just sitting behind fuck holes camping wasn't my idea for long term fun.

    Assuming AA stays popular once it releases I can see myself playing for a longggggg time. The biggest negative right now are a lack of private servers. No clan wars :( fuckkkkkk. Even in the small beta testing going on the matches where you're against a full party are so intense.

    If you want to leave feedback for the game visit http://reddit.com/r/AmericasArmyPS4 we got the community manager replying daily and taking in suggestions/bugs. They really really seem committed to building a great experience so far.

    The game is complete trash on PS4, awful lag and terrible framerate drops to almost 0. It's a much better game on PC.

    I'm guessing you're out of the loop. Sony dropped the ball and released the closed beta to the public. Anyone could download it that Tuesday morning, they pulled it from the store later that night. Best part is Sony also released the wrong build LOL. So what you were playing up until July 4th was totally fucked. The recent patch has fixed frame and lag issues. Even better news. Servers are still running on peer to peer. In the coming days they're switching over to dedicated servers, that'll fix the rest of the issues that are ongoing. Check my video, this is last night. Near flawless gameplay on peer to peer. I wouldn't be so harsh on a build you weren't suppose to be playing

    FYI, it will be back in the store next week for everyone to download. It does have that Socom-ish play style. I play it on PC from time to time, can't wait to give it a go on PS4.

    This is a pleasant surprise, I'll check it out. I played an earlier AA for a day or two, but nothing more.

    That's good news, I was hoping that it was a mistake because there is 0 way that should have been released to the public the way it was.

    I just got access to the closed beta @PRE_-CISION-_ and installed it. Maybe, if you're gonna be around tonight, after task force testing you could show me the ropes?

    I'm not sure if I got you on psn. My tag is the same as my forum name. I'll be on for the next two hours give or take. Everyone uses in game chat for the most part, just throw your mic on and ask around if we don't link up

    Just a heads up I'll be doing a giveaway on reddit in about an hour. I have 100 closed beta codes for AA to give away thanks to the beyond awesome community manager. If a few of you want in, I got you.

    I got on and played and boy, it ran like crap. No volume slider for the obnoxious "that guy" thumping rap music in the mic at 2 a.m. The game ran at like 20 MAYBE fps. It wasn't a great first impression. Although the dev I spoke with told me specifically that to be warned, the game is in a HORRIBLE state right now and once the dedicated servers are up, it will smooth out the network and game performance that I'm having issues with now.

    I would say you got into a bad room. If you press the scoreboard it shows your ping. Since as you know dedicated servers are not in right now, it can be spotty on P2P. I would say 90% of the time I do not have any issues like you described tho. Also just press the scoreboard and X on someones name to mute/umute them.
