Cherno Plus: Hall On Day Z’s Standalone Future

Earlier this week I sat down with Day Z creator Dean Hall to talk about the new standalone game. Read on for information on why the mod version of the game will now "open up", how dogs work, how original Op Flash developers came back to work on the new title, how "underground construction" might work, and for an explanation of why there won't be…

DayZ You’ll Remember All Your Life

The most well-attended session at Rezzed was Dean 'Rocket' Hall chatting about the game/mod of the moment, DayZ. Zeitgeisty! Relaxed and charming, he goes into the making of the open-world zombie survival mod for Arma II before fielding a ton of audience questions on everything from the nature of fun to 'Day Z hipsters' and in-game kidnappings. It's a shame you missed it. If you're…

Czech Cashed: Arma II Getting Czech Army DLC

"The civil war in Bystrica is at its end. But it’s not the end of fear for the people. War criminals like Colonel Miyovic still terrorize the country with their militia looting and murdering civilians. Forces of the Czech Republic Army are sent to restore order." Go Czech army! Also this: "15 new missions in the singleplayer campaign, scenarios and procedural template gameplay modes" and…

Arma 2: The Player News Report

I don't know why I am surprised to see Arma 2 players effectively role-playing in their game, but it was still a bit strange to watch this video (below). It's a bunch of footage shot by a "cameraman" as he and a reporter accompany the chaps from UKTF clan in their patrols on the game. They get ambushed, obviously, and plenty of dodgy-voice acting and…

Take On Helicopters Taster For Op Arrowers

Op Archers? Owners of Operation Arrowhead, anyway. If you are one of those people - as you should be if you like soldier simming - then you are entitled to a preview version of Take On Helicopters, the forthcoming commercial chopper game from Bohemia Interactive. It looks like this is a sort of add-on for Operation Arrowhead which demonstrates the new flight model and pilot…

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…

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…

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…

Arma II: OA Event Tomorrow. Or Not.

UPDATE TWO: Oh dear. Problems with the server for this means we're going to have to postpone. Again. I know, apologies! I'm going to have to get RPS its own games box for these kinds of eventualities! Sorry about this. We will get our Arma 2 game soon. More details later. UPDATE: Apologies for lack of information! I'm having some last minute problems with the…

A2OA Compo: Winners And Postponement!

So, the hurrah/bah list for this competition. Hurrah: winners of the Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead competition will be receiving their codes and links this afternoon. Bah: We're going to have to postpone the actual co-op game until the 29th of August, despite having asked everyone who be available tomorrow. Hurrah: That gives you all some time to practice. Bah: But perhaps some folks will be…

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...

Straight & True: ARMA II: Op Arrowhead

AH-64 Apache gunship, M2A3 Bradley IFV, MH-6 Little Bird... I confess I know as much about these things as I do about the mating habits of giant grasshoppers, but many people are greatly enamoured of them. The tanks and aircraft I mean, not the rutting insects. Such enthusiasts will be duly pleased by this really very pretty trailer for Operation Arrowhead, the upcoming standalone expansion…

Arma II: Mod Tools, Expansion Pack Announced

Military mega-shooter Arma II has some mod tools out for those people who want to turn it into celestial strip-chess, and you can get hold of them here. Rather more interesting news for the general gaming public, however, is the announcement of an expansion back, Operation Arrowhead. The standalone expansion pack will apparently be shown at GamesCom, and takes place when "a new flashpoint in…
