[QUOTE][B]Prague, Czech Republic 19th May[/B] - Bohemia Interactive, the award-winning independent Czech development studio, is pleased to announce the development of Arma 3, the brand new installment in its series of critically acclaimed realistic military simulators. Combining over 10 years of experience, building upon the strength of its predecessors, and set in the most detailed environment of the series to date, Arma 3 offers gamers radical engine improvements and a unique sandbox-style military gameplay experience. The next chapter of this stunning military simulation game is scheduled for release exclusively for PC in Summer 2012.

[B]Survive, Adapt, Win[/B]
After years of intense warfare against Eastern armies, Europe has become the last stand for the battered NATO forces. On the verge of being driven into the sea, NATO command embarks upon a most desperate measure. In the hope of seizing what seems to be a well-guarded military secret, Operation Magnitude is launched. A small group of Special Forces and Researchers are sent to a Mediterranean island deep behind enemy lines. However, the mission is compromised and the task force destroyed, leaving Cpt. Scott Miller washed ashore upon the hostile island. In his effort to carry out the mission, he will face the dangers of modern warfare, an unforgiving environment, and the consequences of his own decisions...

[*]Survive in the rich & authentic environment
[*]Adapt to the unsurpassed experience of modern ground combat
[*]Win in the open-ended & story-driven campaign

Visually, it's quite stunning. The inclusion of PhysX is great for NVIDIA users but not-so-great for ATI/AMD users. I hope the difference in physics quality isn't too big.

Dwarden, you guys manage to figure out the broken missions with people not being there, objectives not showing up etc? if you can promise this one won't have those issues i'll get it. i really wanted to like Arma II but honestly that game was a mess, sorry to say.

Arma 3, now even with worse code than Arma 2! (If this is in any way possible)

Seriously, why do people get such a hard on for Arma 2 when it was most likely one of the buggiest, crappiest, worst coded trash that came out for the PC in the last few years?

hey, let's try to keep it polite here. i know how you feel, i also had issues with the coding and scripting, but it wasn't that bad and we do have one of the developers with us here.

That may be the case - but no other game offers the same experience once you fully grasp the advanced nature of ARMA.
I agree, they really should focus more power on bugtesting and overall user experience.

I wonder if its the same engine or updated though, I REALLY WANT TO GET RID OF THE FIRE BUG AMONG SO MANY OTHER ERRORS.

Dwarden as I have mentioned before please take a look at HalfLife2/Counterstrike as to how a menu and interface should be built and get rid of your own.
And last but not least take a look at ACE2 for inspiration for more advanced features, its not like you care about the steep learning curve as it is now.

I will buy this game regardless of how little you listen to the community though ;D

I can't say I'm not excited about ARMA 3. I loved ARMA 2 but the bugs and issues got me turned off.. but I still loved it. ARMA 3 looks like a stunner.

I never played a modern era Call of Duty or any ARMA games but when I look at ARMA I wonder why people make a big deal over CoD games. Maybe they should try to make a console version after the PC (no console ports).

I like both of them, but ARMA has a steep learning curve and its a [b]much[/b] slower paced game which can put a lot of people off I think.
I also dont think a console version is possible, the map is too big and the features too advanced - there are limits to how much you can fit to a joypad.

Try comparing Battlefield2(PC) and then Battlefield: Bad Company - it really shows that the latter was made with consoles in mind.
Im not saying they are bad, I love them both but a console truly does have its limits.

Obviously there are areas where consoles outperform PCs (I am looking at you XBL LIVE)..

as the person behind the MP redesign since 1.55 i can assure You we will improve the UI to be more streamlined and simpler

but for sure we will not adopt anything like in TF2 or similar ... we use our own way

what fire bug? if you mean the huge one in missions then that's some mission script going wild

I just want to say since Dwarden is from Bohemia Interactive, not sure if you had anything to do with Joint Ops, but to this day I think it is one of the most criminally overlooked PC MP games to ever exist. It was the first game that brought large scale battles. Had some truly epic moments on it.

I still really want to pick up Arma II actually, for you guessed it, DayZ. Also if there is anyway to be included on the press list/beta list for Arma III, by all means let me know how. Would love to hype it up on our podcast.
