ArmA II Patch 1.05 Fixes Bugs, Adds Free Campaign

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.  

Along with many...many...bug fixes comes a free campaign called Eagle Wing playable in co-op and a bonus vehicle - the AH-64D helicopter pictured above.  The bug fixes include performance, AI enhancement, graphical tweaks, improved input handling and more.  If you're copy of the game was collecting dust, perhaps it's time to break out the Pledge and check it out again.

Updating the game to version 1.05, the patch delivers the following bug fixes, gameplay tweaks and performance improvements:
• Free bonus campaign Eagle Wing
• Free bonus helicopter addon AH-64D
• New Warfare multiplayer mode When Diplomacy Fails, including 3-sides and support for diplomacy between factions

• Automatic launching of user made addons (units, missions etc.) via "pbo" file association with the game
• Possibility to switch between windowed and fullscreen mode at any time in game menus using Alt + Enter or through video options
• Various crash opportunities fixed
• Linux server support added
• New GUI to various dedicated server settings
