Real Men of War: Arma 3's Live Action Trailer

AND YET IT STILL COMES. The next offering from the infinite wheel of trailers is BIS's Arma 3. They've gone for the live-action teaser trailer approach with this one, and something of a mood piece rather than giving much away about the game. I've attempted to ameliorate this by including a second, fan-made video composed of all the screenshots to date stitched together and given an ominous soundtrack.


And that gallery piece:

Here's some official blurb about the game too, confirming some of the features we can expect from Arma 3. Sounds an awful lot like Armas 1 and 2 mind, but then again I guess that's the point.

  • Single-Player Campaign - Evolve from lone prey into a military
    commander in the open-ended & story-driven campaign.
  • Vehicles & Weapons - Control a multitude of aircraft, vehicles and
    ships with accurate simulation; shoot anything from pistols to
    sophisticated weapon platforms.
  • Customizable Soldier Load - Choose your uniform; assemble your weapon
    kit; change your load-out; get loaded up.
  • Physical Simulation & Improved Animations - Take advantage of PhysXT
    supported vehicle simulation, in-game interactions and the revamped
    animation system.
  • Rich & Authentic Environment - Explore an unsurpassed military combat
    experience set on an authentic Mediterranean island modelled from real
    geographic data.
  • Multiplayer Gameplay - Experience both cooperative & competitive
    scenarios with the full support of dedicated servers for both Windows
    and Linux.
  • Completely Extensible & Moddable - Design & create countless
    customizable scenarios using the intuitive & easy-to-use mission

More on Arma 3 on RPS soon, you'll be glad to hear.
