10 Things You Need to Know About: Arma III

Arma is one of the hardest core military franchises out there, so let's take a closer look at the upcoming Arma III, which is out tomorrow:

  1. The Arma games take place on massive open world islands, with Arma III's setting being the islands of Altis and Stratis, just near Greece in the Mediterranean sea.
  2. The islands are approximately 270 square kilometres in size, making it easily the largest map of any Arma game.
  3. The game takes place in the mid-2030s, and sees NATO forces in conflict with Iranian aggressors from the East.
  4. While the game is goal-driven in the single-player campaign, the hook for the series has always come from the free-form combat, both co-operative and competitive.
  5. Each of the 50 villages dotted throughout the islands on the map are fully destructible.
  6. Players will be able to occupy a multitude of realistic vehicles as well as fight on foot.
  7. The game runs on developer Bohemia Interactive's Real Virtuality 4 engine.
  8. Some developers were detained during the making of the game for filming a military base in Greece while conducting research.
  9. Iran has banned the game already.
  10. It will be available on PC tomorrow for AUD$69.95 or NZD$89.95.
