It seems the Heavens have opened.........


There is a "wave" of free to play games, I know free to play shooter have been around forever but this trend of commercial free to play with pay for special content, an attempt which was first made by EA with their game Battlefield: Hero's is starting to catch on with other developers. Its a good technique if you ask me, EA has 5 million subscribers on Battlefield: Heroes alone, I being one of them. Now, Bohemia has laid a train on those tracks and is giving PC gamers a free ride. Your chance to go hardcore PC.

Giving small doses of what the game is capable of with free features, kinda like a demo, but with more features than what a usual demo would include. Its raining games I suppose.


For all you who do not know what ArmA series is or have never played it, here it is a free to play version. An introduction to what ArmA is. ArmA series is simulation shooter made exclusively for the PC, the game is was developed by Bohemia Interactive when they split with Codemasters after they made Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crysis.

The free to play will be available June 2011, so if you guys want to look into it, you should bookmark the site and check back on it. I will also post when the game is released so that we can play together. I have the full edition of the whole set, so if any of you guys want to play some, let me know. Cheers.

I must agree. I asked him on Steam if you could fly jets, and when he said yes, I must admit, I had a nerdgasm.

About time! =D I'll be playing soon, I'm working on my 65x65 pyramid in Minecraft though. So it may wait until that's complete.
This feels like an early birthday present. <3

I used to own some version of ArmA II, and in my opinion, it sucked.

There was like, no emotion in anything at all. It was like literally playing with robots, and there was waay to many controls, and things you had to keep up with.

I mean, it is kinda realistic, but I didnt really like it.
