In 2009 the fictional post-soviet country of Chernarus is ravaged by civil war. For two crippling years, conflict has raged... Players explore this volatile world with Force Recon Razor Team, part of a US Marine Corps Expeditionary Unit. The 27th MEU are deployed to Northern Chernarus on a peacekeeping mission with a mandate to prevent further civilian casualties and promote political stability. ARMA 2 is based on the latest generation technology. It offers a uniquely vast game world, authentic and extremely detailed modern units, weapons, vehicles and environments. The branching, player-driven campaign can be played solo, or cooperatively and is accompanied by a huge range of single and multiplayer game modes. ARMA 2 is a hardcore military simulator that allows the player to carry out the many different roles of a soldier in combat zones. Its campaign takes place in the 225 square-kilometre fictional ex-soviet state of Chernarus where a bloody conflict is taking place.
So if you have not had the opportunity to play ARMA 2 - a massive scale, realistic FPS, we've got the F2P version available right now via Desura.

The good folks at Bohemia, announced the F2P release of ARMA2 at E3 this year and we've been working with them ever since to get one of our favorites up on Desura. With truly unrivaled scale and gameplay possibilities. Arma 2: Free serves up almost everything offered by the original Arma 2 - and is the '13th best PC game of all time', according to North American PC Gamer.
The free version is no different from the original (which retails for 19.99), just minus the campaign, HD graphics and support for user-made addons and mods. While the mods are a big miss (as they have a huge collection here on ModDB), you can always upgrade down the road. Here is the official release:
