Day 4 has come of the Steam Summer Sale extravaganza - and the co-op goodness keeps coming. There's six co-op titles on sale today from the big names to the little unknowns.
Bohemia Interactive have released a teaser trailer for Arma 3, their next iteration in their tactical warfare series for the PC. It sort of blurs the line between live action video and in game footage. We're actually quite confused at what we're looking at, especially if you let the trailer run passed the closing logo.
Boehmia Interactive have announced Arma 3, the sequel to Arma 2. Shocking, I know. The series is created by many of the original developers of the first Operation Flashpoint game and it retains a gritty and realistic look at war. Along with this, the Arma games focus on realistic vehicles and weapons to try to emulate an authentic experience.
Ever have that itch to contract out? To be the master of your own destiny, and servant of none? To cause mayhem, death, and destruction in the name of the almighty dollar?
The folks at Bohemia Interactive aren't resting on their laurels when it comes to ArmA 2. In what seems like a response to yesterday's DLC release for Operation Flashpoint 2 comes the release of the 1.05 patch for ArmA 2.
While ArmA II has a built in mission editor, it limits to exactly what you can do. Sure you can place players, enemies, objects and waypoints - but what you can't do is use your own models, characters or story. That's all changed though as Bohemia Interactive has released a full suite of mod tools for the PC co-op title.
The boys at Bohemia Interactive have announced an expansion pack for the four player co-op game ArmA II called Operation Arrowhead. The expansion is set in the hilly regions of Asia, Arrowhead takes place three years after the events of Chernarus. There's no other detail regarding new weapons or vehicles, but with a current roster of a few hundred, what's a few dozen more?
It's figures, one day after we post our ArmA II review - Bohemia Interactive releases a new patch for the game. Players can download the patch from the official website, and Steam users will get auto updated.
Military Sims, true Military Sims, are a rarity these days. Instead we've grown used to the likes of Ghost Recon. That's not a knock on Ghost Recon, it's just a true hardcore sim is hard to come by. Enter ArmA 2 for the PC, the latest co-op military sim from Bohemia Interactive. Perhaps there's a reason these sims are a rarity? Or perhaps we just don't know what we are missing.
While the main part of ArmA 2 can be played cooperatively, there's a whole other aspect to the game that allows players to customize the battlefield by scripting their own missions. You may have seen some of the insane videos we've posted - all of them were created with the game's mission editor.
After watching the following video it's fairly obvious that the soldiers in ArmA II don't like vegetables. Or they really want meat. Perhaps they just have a thing against the bovine nation.
ArmA 2 is available on Steam today, and the very co-op friendly game is already getting fairly solid praises. While the game sports a robust single player and co-op campaign, as well as plenty of online options - it's the mission editor of ArmA 2 that's getting a lot of attention.
If you're looking to enter massive cooperative battles against thousands of soldiers, well then, you won't have to wait much longer. Bohemia Interactive and Got Game Entertainment have announced their partnership for the North American release of Arma II on the PC.
Games like Call of Duty always do a good job of making you feel like you are part of a larger battle than you actually have direct control over. But what if all those things you saw on the screen you could actually shoot or affect? That's exactly what ArmA 2 looks to be promising.
