ARMA III Announces New Island, Incredible New Video

Arma III has announced a new island for the game, Stratis, adding another 19 square km to its already huge expanse. And with that comes a new video and six new screenshots of brain-hurting graphics, that will make you scream "BUT THAT MUST BE REAL-WORLD VIDEO!" and then fall down. You can do that below.

The game, due this Winter, is already looking quite extraordinary, with each video making us blink. Now there's more to blink at in the North Aegean with an enormous island. The website somewhat contradicts itself, claiming it's both 19 and 25 sq km, but let's just go along with "very big". It's to be mountainous, and sparsely populated. You can find out all about it at the dedicated site.

It's also to be the site for the forthcoming community alpha, a neat way of restricting players to a confined space, rather than having them sprawl over the whole 300 km2 immediately. Creative Director Iva Buchta says,

“The fact that Stratis is relatively small, compared to the gigantic Limnos area, should not fool you; the island has enough space to facilitate all kinds of gameplay, including massive multiplayer battles. Just know, once the Community Alpha is out, I’ll be watching from the best sniper spots!”

Here are the new screenshots, which you can click to embiggen.
