Arma franchise


Recommended Posts

ARMA III still has solid content pumping out for it.  Global Moblization just got a pretty substantial update and SOG: Prarie Fire is a just awesome! The reception to Reforger hasn't been the best... so far so I'd rather they take as much time as needed to make sure they get ARMA IV right than just put it out and it disappoints.

Content, yes. But it's like making new Star Trek episodes using the same sets, costumes, and effects from the 60s today...the engine needs updating.

The uninterruptible animations, the clunky interface and movement, so many things that haven't changed since OFP in 2001.

I wish someone could take all the Arma content and AI and settings and models and port them into CoD or BF or something like that. I love their graphics and feel but despise their gameplay.

This from Spearhead-44...

In this new Creator DLC, you will be a part of the US First Army’s advance as they attempt to break through the German lines. Take advantage of an array of US weaponry and equipment and traverse the fields and bocage of an all new Normandy terrain. 

 Spearhead-44 will offer a seven mission multiplayer co-op campaign, several official scenarios and game modes, and even more content creation opportunities with the Arma 3 scenario editor. Players will be introduced to the lesser known Operation Cobra - taking place 7 weeks after D-Day, with the US First Army attempting to break through the German lines around Saint-Lô. The Creator DLC will deliver an immersive and historic military sandbox experience on a scale not seen before in Arma 3.

Key features of the Spearhead 1944 Creator DLC

 include: Normandy Terrain

 - Explore 150 km² of unique terrain, based on real locations and topography of North-West France. An immersive environment to play the campaign and run missions. The terrain features flowing rivers, an airstrip, the destroyed city of Saint-Lô, wooded areas, fields with traditional French bocages and much more. Featuring new and unique buildings, ruins, objects and plants as well as dug in positions and light fortifications. Over 400 street signs aid players in navigating the vast road network. Explore the overgrown, well defended landscape of Normandy, where every field is another potential bloody battle.

5 Playable Factions and Civilians

 - Featuring elements of the US Army, Free French, and German Forces equipped with their own uniforms and gear.

50+ Weapons and Grenades

 - Engage the enemy with detailed recreations of 1944 weaponry and a diverse arsenal of grenades and explosives.

40+ Vehicles & Static Weapons

 - Wage war in a range of transports and armored vehicles, such as the M18 Hellcat, M10 Wolverine, and Tiger I. You'll also be supported by a number of static weapons including trench variants, searchlight, and mortars.

Uniforms and Other Gear

 - Equip yourself with more than 200 uniform variants, 60+ vest variants, 70+ backpack variants, and 150+ headgear variants alongside a bunch of accessories.

Multiplayer Co-op Campaign

 - Seven co-op missions, fully voiced and highly replayable for up to 24 players, inspired by the real events of Operation Cobra, revealing the significance to liberated Europe and covering key milestones such as the liberation of Saint Gilles and the defense of Saint Denis-le-Gast

6 Multiplayer Scenarios

 - Play six new scenarios in Arma 3's official Combat Patrol, Escape, Warlords and Zeus game modes with various upgrades, additions, faction selection and automatic support for WW2 mods.

Singleplayer/Co-op Scenario: Der Zahnarzt

 - Members of the French Resistance were ordered by the SOE to eliminate Standartenführer Konrad Dentist Hoffmann at the occupied Château near Marigny.

US Faction Showcase

 - Become familiar with the Allied arsenal and help push through Normandy during Operation Cobra.

German Faction Showcase

 - Build defenses and assist the retreating forces.

Sounds & Effects

 - Experience immersive audio designed to accurately reproduce the sounds of a World War 2 battlefield: Incoming projectiles, shell ricochets and interior hit sounds, plane fly-by sounds, bullet cracks, explosions, call-in radio requests and the desperation of surrendering soldiers, cries of the wounded and the dying.


 - A custom and atmospheric soundtrack, specifically selected to transport you to 1944.

Additional Content

 - Custom systems to increase immersion (i.e. ambient war sounds, illumination flares, ordnance and artillery barrage, custom HUD for vehicles), to expand gameplay and tactical options (i.e. enhanced revive, indirect fire support, surrendering, bolt action rifles, extended reload animations, bayonets, open bolt hipfire, wall avoidance, realistic tank penetration, deflection and destruction), AI behavior (i.e. revive for AI, targeting and weapons management in tanks by AI a gunner/commander, custom difficulty adjustment system) and more.

The Arma 3 Creator DLC: Spearhead 1944 is scheduled for release later this year and will be priced at $17.99 USD (€17.99EUR / £14.99 GBP). The precise release date will be shared at a later time. To be notified of Spearhead 1944's release, you can also add the CDLC to your Steam wishlist via the store page. More information about the project can also be found at www.spearhead-1944.com. Heavy Ordnance Work plans to share more development insights via their social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
