ARMA 3, the latest installment of the tactical military simulation game from independent developers Bohemia Interactive, creators of the award-winning mil-sim series Arma.


Survive, Adapt, Win
After years of intense warfare against Eastern armies, Europe has become the last stand for the battered NATO forces. On the verge of being driven into the sea, NATO command embarks upon a most desperate measure. In the hope of seizing what seems to be a well-guarded military secret, Operation Magnitude is launched. A small group of Special Forces and Researchers are sent to a Mediterranean island deep behind enemy lines. However, the mission is compromised and the task force destroyed, leaving Cpt. Scott Miller washed ashore upon the hostile island. In his effort to carry out the mission, he will face the dangers of modern warfare, an unforgiving environment, and the consequences of his own decisions...

The funny thing is that CS's and Battlefield's (save for BF3) reloads are unrealistic.

Well just connecting a words "realistic" and "Counter-Strike" is rather funny -and even almost hilarious when used against ArmA. (Really, are we living in a same universe? Did he really just used Counter-Strike with half of its rifles mirrored so they look better and with M4 cocked by the forward assist knob instead of actual charging handle, as an example for realism?)

I like this modern-futuristic concept, looks like ghost recon in sandbox.
+1 for nvidia physic. Mediterranean is very cool place for game, i hate Chernogorski because is too depressive for me.
I dont understand what is Merkava 4 doing in game ? Will be IDF in game ?
What means "Easter army" ? New Warshaw pact ? Or mixed Chinese and Russian ?
