In-game Screens In-game Screens

As Bohemia Interactive's award winning military simulation Operation Flashpoint reached an age of 10 years, Bohemia Interactive re-branded and re-released Operation Flashpoint as ARMA Cold War Assault as a celebration for their anniversary. It can be brought from Steam or a free update provided to the original owners!

Operation Flashpoint or ARMA Cold War Assault is an award winning 2001 combat military simulator for the PC that was developed by Bohemia Interactive, and published by Codemasters. Built on the Real Virtuality engine, it was a realistic simulation that featured a single player campaign, multiplayer capabilities over LAN & Internet, and even included a mission editor. Later on in 2001, Operation Flashpoint had 2 expansion packs named Red Hammer and Resistance. It later received a port under the name Operation Flashpoint Elite on the Xbox.

By 2006, Codemasters and Bohemia Interactive split to form two different games, Bohemia Interactive released ARMA: Armed Assault in 2006, and Codemasters released Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising in 2009 (Codemasters stated that it is not promoted as an 'official sequel' to OFP). Bohemia Interactive has gone on to create further games such ARMA 2 and soon to be released, ARMA 3. In 2011, Bohemia Interactive celebrated the 10th anniversary of Operation Flashpoint by re-branding it as ARMA Cold War Assault.

Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis was re-branded as ARMA: Cold War Assault due to Codemasters still retaining the rights of the name "Operation Flashpoint".
