Normally when we talk about adding a ridiculous amount of players to a co-op game, it doesn't quite work out like we hoped. The same can't be said for the military tactical game ArmA 2. There's a mod in the works that is being dubbed as the "Headless AI Client" and it's allowing for some truly impressive battles to take place featuring dozens, even hundreds, of players with realistic and intelligent AI while still maintaining solid frame rates.
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.
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?
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.
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.
