The United States Army announced today that their upcoming free-to-play shooter, America’s Army 3, is now available for pre-loading on Steam, and will be available for purchase on the service at its June 17th launch. Players will then be able to download the full game for free via Steam and through connected Army websites.

“We are very excited to work with Valve to distribute AA3 on Steam as it gives us access to great distribution technology as well as a tremendous user base,” said Marsha Berry, the Army Senior Executive Producer for the America’s Army program. “Additionally, we have incorporated Steamworks features such as Achievements and Steam Cloud to create a richer experience for Steam users. Our relationship with Steam will broaden our reach to a new community and it offers our current players a great new way to get the America’s Army game and keep it updated. Players will also be able to download AA3 using the America’s Army Deploy Client from the Deploy network of providers listed on the America’s Army download site.”
