In anticipation of the launch of the new version of its Virtual Battlespace game, the U.S. army has just updated its military gaming website.

Changes to MilGaming portal, which serves as a gateway for soldiers to access the Games for Training program, are meant to make the experience more user-friendly and easier to navigate.

“The improvements are part of a regular update cycle that helps the Games for Training program stay relevant and add new technological features,” said Marco Conners, deputy of TCM-Gaming.

MilGaming is managed by the Training and Doctrine Command Capability Manager-Gaming, and it offers soldiers software downloads, apps, news, training events, technical support and training scenarios.
