I have never played this. Some say it is more like a simulation? But I loved and completed Operation Flashpoint and Rainbow 6 so is this like those?

Seems to be some new content coming later in the year so an offer for that dlc bundle 2.

Any thoughts on single player campaigns? Or is it just random stuff with a steep learning curve?

Heat. I can't remember it being cheaper on Steam.

Heat from me too. According to both Steamprices.com and isthereanydeal.com, this is it's historically lowest price. It was briefly cheaper via a Humble Bundle, but that was back in February.

It's awesome. My fave PC game by a long shot, and endlessly moddable too

i only ever seen this at 14.99 in sale so not sure why its getting cold votes! I really like playing the "life" mods where you can do jobs and rob real people or be robbed.. ive also rage quit from it for a year lol

I really need to go back to Arma to give it another chance.

I bought the main bundle ages back (all except for Apex) installed the game, tried out and failed miserably in the tutorial 2nd mission....several times. I'm always shot dead before I can even see anyone when getting attacked among the trees.....didn't have the patience to finally manage to crack it

I then thought soddit and tried to jump into multiplayer, to get a huge list of servers to connect to, and think pretty much all I tried failed, presumably because I didn't have x or y mod installed and so on - very frustrating

Yet....I'm still tempted to buy the Apex update that's currently on special offer

​Not sure but I think I read that higher specc'd machine were required to increase view distance and you needed a strong multicore cpu.

I play on an I5, though it's OC'd to 4.5ghz. At the time I was playing maxed out settings (well apart from AA from memory).....I think it was more just me being cr** at the game

On looking more into it, it seems the reason I may not have been able to join a multitude of the servers I did try, was likely down to me needing Apex DLC too.

I'm sure should I hunker down enough and spend the time it'll be great.....but getting the time is harder as get older

Annoying as hell. I had the same issue when I tried to play a while back, there didn't seem to be any real populated servers that weren't running a Life or GTA mod, or some random DLC.

Managed a few decent games along the way with a friend, but it all became too tiresome to quickly to find a game - it seems you need to either be inately involved in the community to access private servers or have every MOD under the sun as they're not all clearly advertised as such.

If you're expecting Battlefield levels of ease I'd suggest playing a demo or at very least a tutorial on YouTube, there's literally HUNDREDS of load out options, which sounds great, but in practice it's definitely not a game for casuals, nor one you can have a quick blast on for an hour.

use A3Launcher. will solve most issues you guys are having

Loads of vanilla servers

Back of the net, Microwave popcorn in.....Pepsi on ice and Haribos in bowl.....its gonna be a all nighter!!!!!

Sounds like my kinda night enjoy.

Bought it and ultimately refunded after 1.5 hours. Very good but damn its deep and I am really into BDO right now so i dont have time for another in depth game.

well I decided to give it another play anyway. Went through tutorials etc yet again. I see menu layout etc has changed fair bit since I last tried it. Much better playing through this time round, and good to see there is now 64bit version. I'm still not great at it, but enjoying it a lot more.
I did see now theres quick search for match types. I managed to get straight into a "deathmatch" game, but then a few of the other modes I tried I just got errors that unable to find games to join.....surprisingly bad for a quick play feature

On browsing the server lists, at least I now see that bottom right list of what dlc etc is used, so have something to go by, but for now will work through the single player.......to decide whether to get Apex or not hmmm

Damn - missed steam sale and the humble bundle deal
