The award winning Project Reality Team is proud to announce the official release of Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA! After countless hours of development, thousands of code changes and an intensive testing period, we are pleased to announce the general availability of the Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA modification.


[ppbranchm15122button]

Please note that you must have ARMA 2: Combined Operations installed and be running the ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead v1.59 patch in-order to play the Project Reality: ARMA 2 mod.

First BETA Release

This initial release is a BETA, and therefore should NOT be considered a final product. It should also be noted that this is v0.1 of a brand new mod on a new game engine and should not be compared in anyway to the Project Reality: BF2 modification. The aim of this BETA release is for the PR Team to get quality feedback to ensure that we are progressing in the right direction with the PR:ARMA2 mod.

Most of the current work we have is sitting at around 80-90% complete, but is simply not ready to be included in this initial BETA release. With that said, a lot of content has been removed and in some cases placeholders have been implemented so that we can concentrate on the more important gameplay aspect of the mod to ensure we get it right first.



As with any BETA release, the quality of future releases now lies with you, the community, and the feedback you provide. As is normal with any Project Reality release, we will not take on any feedback for at least 2 weeks. This time period will allow players to adapt and fully understand the PR:ARMA2 gameplay concept before commenting. Therefore, the feedback forums will remain locked for the next 2 weeks.

New Features and Changes

While this release is primarily focused on BETA testing, you can still find some new Project Reality additions and features in the PR:ARMA2 v0.1 BETA release.

  • Unique UI overhaul.
  • British Soldiers (MTP).
  • Unique PR Gameplay Concept for ARMA 2.
  • Various PR game modes.
  • New vehicles including the Warrior IFV, Chinook, Merlin, and the Apache AH1.
  • V1 Basic PR Sounds FX, environment and weapons/vehicles.
  • PR:ARMA2 music, composed by Project Reality.
  • PR Statics Object Pack.
  • PR FX.
  • PR Squad Awareness HUD (SAHUD).
  • PR rear view Mirrors.

For a complete, comprehensive list of all the new features and changes in PR:ARMA2, please view the following forum thread:


Known Bugs and Issues

Over the last 6 months of development, the v0.1 BETA build has undergone extensive testing by our official testing team and as can be expected in a first release, there are already some known bugs. With that said, all players are encouraged to make themselves aware of these known bugs so that they we do not get repetitive bug reports. All currently known bugs are listed in the following forum thread:


Project Reality: ARMA 2 Mod Support

If you encounter any problems while installing and/or playing PR:ARMA2, please check out the Project Reality Mod Support forum. If your problem has not already been posted by someone else or is not in the above known bug list, please do not hesitate to start a new thread asking for help. We will do everything we can to provide you with a solution, but we can't do anything if you don't ask first!

Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA Servers

For this BETA release, we will not be publicly releasing any server files. This will ensure that the official servers are populated and therefore will provide us with better overall feedback. Once the BETA has finished, we will open up server license applications as usual.

The following organizations/communities have kindly agreed to provide servers during the v0.1 BETA test and are classed as the Official PR Servers for the duration of this BETA phase:

Alpha Networks Official PR v0.1 Beta Test Server [@PR]
Rusty In Places - Official PR v0.1 Beta Test Server [@PR]
Tactical Gamer - Official PR v0.1 Beta Test Server [@PR]
Kellys Heroes - Official PR v0.1 Beta Test Server [@PR]
TV2 Battle.no - Official PR v0.1 Beta Test Server [@PR]
BigD Gaming Community / AEF - Official PR v0.1 Beta Test Server [@PR]

Project Reality: ARMA 2 v0.1 BETA Credits

The Project Reality team would like to take a moment to thank those that have assisted us throughout this development cycle and therefore all credits in this release can be found here. PR: ARMA2 v0.1 BETA Credits.

In conclusion, the Project Reality Team would like to extend the usual thanks. First and foremost, Alpha Networks, for providing the Project Reality development team with critical test and build servers. Without their support, PR:ARMA2 v0.1 BETA would likely have never happened. We would also like to thank the entire PR community, the wider ARMA 2 news community and last (but certainty not least!) Bohemia Interactive for supporting Project Reality over the past 12 months.

We hope you enjoy this release and we look forward to the feedback everyone provides!

ARMA 2 Doesn't support mods and you need OP Arrowhead in addition to Arma 2 to run this.

Can you bother reading it? "Please note that you must have ARMA 2: Combined Operations installed and be running the ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead v1.59 patch in-order to play the Project Reality: ARMA 2 mod."
