Another realistic, 3D war simulation from the developers of well-rated Operation: Flashpoint. Unlike OP:F, Armed Assault will feature not only open-air, massive area firefights, but also tactical operations in various cities, and other urbanized areas. The game is created mostly for the multiplayer mode, but there'll be a big campaign for singleplayer, too (developers stated that the NPC's will have very high AI, their behaviors will include not only shooting and chasing, but also, for example, setting traps).

Armed Assault will focus on team-work, in similar style that Battlefield 2 does. It is supposed to be very tactical, victory will require cooperation and usage of various equipment and vechicles. The weaponry will include submachineguns and rifles (MP5, M4, AK-47), shotguns (SPAS), sniper arms (M82A1, Dragunov, Steyr), and probably other heavy weapons like rocket launchers, and stationary MGs.

A small US Army contingent has been sent to the Atlantic island of Sahrani with the purpose of helping to train the army of the local pro-American monarchy. The Kingdom of South Sahrani, rich in natural resources, has always been at odds with its Northern neighbor, the Democratic Republic of Sahrani. In recent years however, the situation has settled into an uneasy yet peaceful coexistence.

But the Democratic Republic of Sahrani sees the training of Southern troops by the US as a threat. When they learn that the US troops have finished their deployment and are in the process of shipping out, the North prepares to strike while a false sense of security still occupies the minds of their Southern neighbors.

Armed Assault is a first person tactical military shooter with large elements of realism and simulation. This game features a blend of large-scale military conflict spread over large areas alongside the more closed quarters battle. The player will find himself thrust in the midst of an engaging and expanding storyline, fighting against smart, aggressive enemies who will continually provide a challenge over a massive landscape.


Enjoy ARMA: Gold and many other great games on Desura.

this is why your arma is crap:
no gameplay improvements, 50 ppl max in MP on maps compared to country, stupid optimization, physics, poor animations, and lot of unneeded control functions, etc.

There is a release of the originl OFP campaign for ArmA, too. Should find its way to Moddb, but I think the games modding community prefers to use Armaholic, etc.
