Beyond The Alpha: Have Fun In Arma 3

The scenario: you have the Arma 3 Alpha and you've exhausted the stock missions the game comes with. You're also rubbish with the editor, and you don't live with someone Arma Arm Armasson, who can show you what to do with it. Don't worry. There's no such person, so you're not missing out on his sage wisdom. And Arma 3 is pretty easy to have…

Take On: Bohemia’s Marek Spanel Talks Day Z, Arma III

One of numerous RPS interview victims at GamesCom was Bohemia bossman, Marek Spanel. The smiley Czech was keen to discuss the studio's success, and to talk his upcoming projects: Arma III, and the Day Z standalone. We also touch on the importance of modding, that Operation Flashpoint was almost something like a post-apocalyptic Carrier Command, and why DirectX 9 can be dispensed with. As for…

Land, Sea, And Car: ARMA III Bares All

Well, maybe not quite all, but ARMA III's debuted three rather sizable portions of its E3 demo, and - while I'm a bit unsettled by the sudden and ominous proliferation of threes in my life - I'm definitely impressed. Nighttime combat, underwater features, and vehicles are all given lengthy turns in the spotlight here - though sadly, the fascinating character of "suicidal goat" is only…

Interview: Bohemia Talk Arma 3, Modding, Day Z

Arma III is still quite some way off, with a release date of "2013", but Bohemia are starting to reveal more and more of the latest iteration in their ongoing soldier sim project, giving us some tantalising glimpses of an overhauled engine and a reworked game. Creative directors Ivan Buchta and Jay Crowe took some time out from working on their near-future weaponry simulations to…

Interview: What’s Next For Day Z

We like Day Z. A lot. You may have heard. Sadly, I couldn't play it during E3 because, well, E3. So instead, I had to settle for chatting with creator Dean "Rocket" Hall - all the while wondering if he had simply lured me into his tiny booth cubicle to catch me off-guard and steal my ammo. Happily, however, I came away with a recording…

ARMA III Trail Considers Details, Sometimes Shoots Them

Most shooter trailers have a way of getting to the point. The point, in case you hadn't guessed, is shooting. People, vehicles, other guns - nothing is safe, and everything is eyebrow-raisingly capable of exploding. Including your eyebrows. ARMA III, though, takes its time. Sometimes, it doesn't get to that point at all. Mid-way through, it even puts a guy in the line of fire…

ARMA III Continues To Look Absolutely Absurd

I mean that, of course, in the best way possible. I suppose the best way I can put it is that I'm excited about a lighting trailer. I tried to count the number of graphics on display, but I ran out of fingers and toes, and my abacus resigned citing unfair work conditions and vague claims of harassment. Goodness, though, those underwater bits, especially, put…

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.

Arma 3 Playable Alpha Coming Post E3

Just like they did with Take On Helicopters, Bohemia Interactive are going to crowd-source a portion of Arma 3's bug-testing to the community, as well as just letting everyone have a poke around, with a playable alpha release sometime after E3. Their military sim series has always suffered brutally buggy launches, but with plenty of players poking at it in the months before release, things…

Oh What A Lovely War: Arma III

Ultra-realistic military sim to contain fictional near-future vehicles and weaponry. Upon hearing the news, four retired colonels smash crystal brandy decanters while blustering angrily through their majestic militarised moustaches. If you think you can stay resolute while squinting at intensely detailed visual representations of things that do not exist, Arma III may be the game for you. Put the brandy to one side and focus…

Arma 3 & Underpants

For some people, there's nothing better than watching nine Arma 3 videos in a row. Those people are going to be extremely disappointed, for today I am only able to bring them eight Arma 3 videos in a row. I have let you down. Perhaps even betrayed your trust. I am so sorry. One day, I hope, we might come to love each other again.…

Seven Minutes Of Arma 3 Footage

German games mag GameStar has managed to get a look at Arma 3 in action. The tech is looking several strides ahead of the previous Arma game, and surprisingly bright and colourful, too. The demo shows a bit of sniping, vehicles, and the new physics in action. The resolution and view distance of the landscapes also appears to be better than real life. At the…

Bohemia On Carrier Command, Arma III

Last week I had a chance to talk to the Bohemia Interactive bossman, Marek Spanel. As one of the brains behind the original Operation Flashpoint, and then the three Arma games that followed, he is one PC gaming's most ambitious developers. He's now embarking on a huge project of developing three games across three studios at the same time: Arma 3, Take On Helicopters, and…

Digital Sales Mean PC Games Can Happen

I've just been transcribing an interview with Marek Spanel, the boss of Bohemia Interactive and one of the most PC-focused developers in Europe, and this came up: "If it were not for digital distribution we would no longer be doing PC games. It's as simple as this." Obvious to us, perhaps, but it's an interesting measure of where we are now with PC gaming. You…

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…

Soldiering On: Arma III Announced

UPDATE: It's now official, I've added a fact sheet and quotes from BIS below. Well, "announced" would usually imply us getting a barrel full of emails from BIS themselves, but it looks like their website update came before the press releases this time. I've been bombarded with links to this, and yes, it's Arma III. It sounds fairly epic: "After years of intense warfare against…
