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.

The game features a player-driven, branching campaign in which your actions have consequences. You can choose to win the hearts and minds of the warring factions inside Chernarus, or play them off against one another. Your choices will shape the future country allowing you to ultimately decide which faction (if any) survives to rule.

ARMA 2 has a vast array of military hardware at the players disposal, 73 modern weapons, 167 vehicle variants in the air, on land and at sea all modelled on after the real world counterparts. The game world will feature real-time day/night cycle.

ARMA 2: British Armed Forces

Two months after the Allied military victory in Takistan, the new government is restoring the war-torn country. NATO forces assisting in this effort face the threat of insurgency, waged by the remnants of the defeated Takistani army in the mountaineous regions of Takistan. Company team of British paratroopers patrolling the treacherous mountains in Zargabad's vicinity is ordered to battle the amassing guerilla warriors.

ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead

Three years after the conflict in Chernarus, portrayed in the original Arma 2, a new flashpoint explodes in the Green Sea Region. Coalition forces led by the US Army are deployed to Takistan to quickly restore peace and prevent further civilian casualties.

ARMA 2: Private Military Company

Private military contractors shoulder the burden of the increased workload, with competition rising between the multinational organisations for lucrative security contracts. Private Military Company, ION, Inc. successfully bid for a contract - codenamed Black Gauntlet - to provide security for a UN investigation team as they seek to piece together information regarding Takistan's abandoned nuclear weapons programme.

Ok, I am sincerely confused. Does the DayZ mod work with the original ARMA 2, or do you need Operation Arrowhead/ Combined Operations?

It's a great military simulator, but it has some very annoying bugs (especially in multiplayer), it feels unfinished and the amount of content which comes with the game is laughable (especially the amount of missions). It almost feels like I'm buying a game engine and must make the actual game myself. The developer, BIS, has some nice community support - although the game had a lot of bugs in the release version, I can really trust BIS and be sure that the bugs will be fixed by patches. Bohemia…
