It has been 6 months since the release of Project Reality Arma 2 v0.1 BETA, and the team has been hard at work fixing bugs and introducing new gameplay elements.
The pre-release test that's been running over at Tactical Gamer for the past month has helped us gauge performance, as well as highlighting further bugs. We've resolved everything that we determined was necessary in order to get the release finalised. In terms of performance, we're very happy. Thanks to BIS the release of the ArmA2:OA Patch 1.60 in December finally allows us all to play without the warping and freezing that bedeviled our 0.1 release.
So, we're happy to announce that the release date for PR: ARMA2 v.015 BETA is:
Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.15 BETA Release Information
A huge amount of work has been completed on identified bugs and plenty on unidentified ones as well, game modes have been revised, and new features have been introduced. We have new missions on Chernarus and the US Army faction has been included on Takistan. A complete change log of the 0.15 Beta release can be viewed here.
Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.15 beta requires:
- ARMA2 plus Operation Arrowhead (collectively known as Combined Operations).
- For a better experience, we strongly recommend the British Armed Forces DLC too.
Your game must be patched to 1.60. In addition we highly recommend using the latest BIS beta patch as there have been several important bug-fixes since patch 1.60. If you use a beta patch, ensure you add the switch '-beta' to your Project Reality shortcut. More help available in the forums if required.
Future Direction of PR : ARMA 2
Straight back to work after this release, the team hopes to have the 0.2 public release out soon after this. The 0.2 release will focus on assets and our upcoming new map, Afghan Village. And of course as a public release it will mean that you, the public, will be able to license and open servers.
The Project Reality Team is recruiting ARMA 2 developers, in particular those with knowledge of config files and Oxygen 2. If you are skilled and knowledgeable with ARMA 2 development, and would like to join the team ... then register on the forums here and PM [R-DEV]epoch.
