America's Army True Soldiers brings the same tactical shooting action that the series has grown famous for while introducing some new game mechanics to help compete with the growing shooter market today.  The game offers some basic character customization allowing the user to pick from a selection of faces and give a nickname to their character.  Like previous games in the franchise, True Soldiers focuses heavily on squad based tactics and cooperation.  Communication between players and the use of formations are key in order to successfully pull off ambushes, traps, or coordinated attacks or defense.  The game provides the user with AI controlled teammates but also supports up to 16 player coop for the story missions. 

True Soldiers integrates a new class system allowing players to choose from five different classes each with two usable weapons one of which will need to be unlocked.  These five classes are the Rifleman, Grenadier, Sniper, Automatic Rifleman, and Squad Leader.  Each class plays a different role on the battlefield and the balancing of classes on your squad is the key to your success.

True Soldiers is heavily focused on multiplayer and allows players to create their own clans. The game offers a variety of gametypes all with different objectives for your squad.  These include an elimination mode(Team Deathmatch), a mode where a squad must reach and secure an extraction point, a defend the base game mode, and also a VIP mode where you must eliminate the enemy VIP.  Voice chat in True Soldiers is a little different than in most shooters today, you can only talk to and hear those around you, friend or foe.  This means that if you are trying to flank an enemy base and you need to direct your squad, your best bet is to whisper to avoid detection. 

Probably the most important mechanic introduced by True Soldiers is the Honor system.  Whenever a player heals a squad member, drags a wounded squad member to safety, shares ammo, or sacrifices them self to eliminate enemies, players will receive a certain number of honor points.  Accumulating enough honor points will cause the player to rank up.  When you rank up you can choose to specialize your soldier in three different categories Valor, Marksmanship, and Physical Training. Each area has their own benefits; Valor increases damage resistance and squad bonuses, Marksmanship increases zoom and reduces gun drifting when scoped, and Physical Training allows the player to run farther and faster, reduces healing time, and increases the maximum amount of equipment you can carry.
