Q. When will AA 2.7 be released?
A. The DEVs do not give out release dates, so it is not know when 2.7 will be released. No theories will work, it’s out when it’s out.
Q. What new features will be in 2.7?
A. New features include SAI (Situational Awareness Indicator), AI (Artificial Intelligence), new weapon systems, new maps, co-op and in-game buddy list and favorite servers.
Q. Is 2.7 going to be a patch?
A. No, 2.7 will be a full install and there will be no patch.
A. It is best explained by [Dev]Pye.
We done a complete reorganization of the asset and code structure to support other work done by the various groups that are working with the AA code. There is a lot of governmental work that is based of the America’s Army game that is largely invisible to the gaming public. In order to support that work we had to make some changes to the way code and assets are labeled, stored, written etc… Because of those changes, it’s not really possible to patch the old asset packages without having a “patch” that comes out to nearly the size of a full install. So, unfortunately, there won’t be a patch version of 2.7.
Q. Will I need to uninstall AA 2.6, since 2.7 will be a full install?
A. Yes, you will need to uninstall the previous version of AA to install 2.7 correctly.
