The game is developed by the US government and distributed for free over the internet. The first version was released as America's Army: Operations on July 4, 2002. Since Operations, twenty different updates have been released, though all were built on the same game. America's Army: Rise of a Soldier was released for the Xbox in late 2005, developed by Secret Level and published by Ubisoft. Another console version, America's Army: True Soldiers was released in 2007 for the Xbox 360 and was developed by Red Storm Entertainment.

    Controversy

    In August 2008, protesters rallied outside Ubisoft headquarters in a protest against America's Army. The protesters claimed that T for Teen rating of the series is in violation of an "international law" making it illegal to recruit people under the age of 17 to the army.
