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…

Get Voting: BI Community Awards 2010

We do love a bit of Arma 2 action here at RPS - it's a regular for game nights, and an all round top manshoot - and so it's a delight to be able to announce this year's Bohemia Interactive Community Awards. You can nominate your favourite mods, missions and videos just here. For a reminder of the highlights of last year's event, check out…

Private Military Company: “News Media”

We revealed the new Arma 2 expansion a couple of weeks back: Private Military Company is BIS' take on the murky world of the mercenary companies working in modern warzones. The latest trailer is one dressed up in the style of media coverage of the activities of these soldiers of fortune, which implicates someone or other in some kind of badness. Hmm!Don't forget we have…

Game Club: Operation Arrowhead 6th/7th

Okay, so most of our games for this Game Club thing are going to be cheap or free, but there will be a few full-price excursions. One such is the first of our community-led evenings, which will take place on the Unofficial RPS Arma 2 server this coming weekend. To play on there you will need Operation Arrowhead patched up to 1.54, or whatever the…

BIS On “Private Military Company” For Arma 2

We've got the scoop on the second bit of DLC for Arma 2, right here. Following on from British Armed Forces (BAF), it introduces another playable faction and campaign along similar lines. It's called Private Military Company, and features the activities of a team of private military contractors within the Arma 2 world, or what BIS are call the "Armaversum". It's designed to be both…

One More Arma II: OA Session?

After the mild success of our previous adventures in Arma II: Operation Arrowhead, we've decided to do one more event on the borrowed RPS server before it is placed on a flaming barge and pushed out to sea. The event will take place this Saturday, 11th August September, from 8pm BST. I will post a new password in this thread half an hour before we…

RPS’ Splendid Adventures in Arma 2:OA

So, having run a competition to equip some of our cleverest readers with copies of Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, we set out to play one of the game's co-operative missions on a splendid 64-man server provided for us by JestServers. Thanks, Jest!We picked one of the community-made missions for the game, of which there are many different kinds. This sprawling, multi-objective desert operation would test…

Arma II: OA, Wednesday Night

Update: the password is "rumpus".Server is up and called "RockPaperShotgun". I will restart and password it tonight just before the game, and post the password here.So the ongoing saga of getting a proper co-op game of Arma II: Operation Arrowhead with RPS types - and particularly our competition winners - should be coming to an end. JestServers have sorted out a lovely, glitzy server and…

Arma 2: British Armed Forces

Following the release of Operation Arrowhead BIS have continued to add to their Arma II line-up, and the British Armed Forces pack is next in the pipeline, as DLC for Operation Arrowhead. You will be unsurprised to learn that it features a range of units that appear in real British military, including soldiers, weapons, and vehicles, which will be available to play in multiplayer battles.…

Arma 2 Is A Strategic Game, You know

And Bohemia Interactive have released a video which shows off some of the stuff that means Arma 2 - and its Operation Arrowhead expansion which arrived on the 28th, last month (sorry, I missed that entirely) - definitely isn't just a first-person shooter. This High Command tutorial (which is below, and spotted via Mr Blue) shows off all the means by which the game allows…

Operation Arrowhead: War Footage!

It's always time for war in ArmA 2, and that's never truer than on the arrival of expansion pack, Operation Arrowhead. Set three years after the original conflict, another flashpoint in the region causes Americans to administer tactical face-biff to local forces. It's a big old single-player campaign that we really should do a hands-on preview of some time soon. MAYBE WE WILL. Anyway, videos...

BIS Community Awards Winners

Ooh, I completely meant to post this last week, and never clicked the button. Bohemia Interactive Studios have announced the winners of their Community Awards 2009, in which they flag up all the sterling efforts of their busy community. This is awesome for all kinds of reasons, but mostly because it's good to see a company that relies so heavily on its community making all…

Arma 2 Multiplayer: The Ruined Midsummer

As an ambitious, macho, overwhelming soldier sim, you might think Armed Assault 2's multiplayer is perhaps ambitious, macho or overwhelming. Well, you'd be WRONG! Drop and give me 20! Less than 20 is fine if you can't quite manage that! Oh, you just ate? Never mind then. I'd feel dreadful if you got indigestion. Basically, playing Armed Assault 2's official missions co-op might be a…

Stuff Explodes, Dudes Get Shot: Arma II

I was just poring over some of the newer information on the Arma II site, and I realised that we hadn't posted the major game-footage trailer (below). Now I have to argue - having played a bit of the game for a huge, awesome feature which is in this month's PCG UK (redesigned mag out next week, fact fans!) - that this isn't entirely representative…

ArmA 2: Dudes Make War, Not Love. Probably.

One of RPS' best chums has been working on iconoclastic soldier sequel ArmA 2 and he told us that stuff happens in it because of clever AI. Sounds amazing, we reckon. Obviously a trailer can't get across the nuances of stuff happening because of AI, clever or otherwise, it just shows off helicopters and trees. There's a story too, that our chum is helping write.…

It’s War, Again: War Of The Wargames

PCGames.de has a bunch of new screenshots from ArmA 2, the sequel to the non-sequel to Operation Flashpoint, by original developers Bohemia Interactive. They sure do look like some kind of excellent war game. But will they hold a candle to Codemasters Operation Flashpoint 2, which has been unveiled in astonishing detail in this month's PC Gamer UK? Honestly, get hold of a copy of…
