ARMA II Operation Arrowhead revealed

Sandbox military simulator expands in Germany

Bohemia Interactive will be showing off ARMA II Operation Arrowhead; the standalone expansion pack to ARMA II at Gamescom next week.

"Three years after the conflict in Chernarus, portrayed in the original ARMA II, a new flashpoint in the Green Sea region heats up and coalition forces led by the US Army are sent to Takistan to quickly restore peace and prevent further civilian casualties," says the dev. They had to get the word 'flashpoint' in there.

Of the new expansion, Bohemia explains: "Set into the new, visually attractive environment of hilly central Asia, Operation Arrowhead will offer realistic combat simulation experience in a modern day setting with unprecedented freedom of movement, actions and tactics. Players will enlist into various roles within the US Army, from basic infantrymen, through special operatives, to pilots and tank crew in this new installment in the award winning line up of military simulators for PC from Bohemia Interactive."
