Arma is finally coming to consoles for the first time
Arma is not for those with weak hearts, which are easily frustrated, or for those with limited time. Bohemia Interactive’s tactical military shooter series in first-person is known for being extremely difficult. You will need to spend a lot of time learning the game’s controls if you want success – although that is not for everyone.
Arma’s complicated controls can be frustrating at times, but those who persevere will enjoy the intense, hyper-realistic experience Arma provides. This experience has been available only to PC gamers, but Arma will soon be available on a console. What console are you asking?
Bohemia Interactive announced the latest instalment in its franchise, Arma Reforger. This is the first-ever Xbox release. Although I said “coming”, Bohemia Interactive essentially dropped Arma Reforger onto us so that you can get your early access now. Score! Score!
Arma fans hoped for Arma4. ArmaReforger may not be as good, but it sounds pretty good. ArmaReforger is set during the Cold War. It features Soviet forces fighting against US troops on Everon’s 51-square-kilometre island.
Everyone is a name that Bohemia Interactive fans will recognize if they are serious. This was the location used in the studio’s Operation Flashpoint Cold War Crisis, a precursor of Arma before Bohemia lost its intellectual rights.
Bohemia Interactive is fully aware of the anticipation of Arma 4. So they offered a minor update: ” Arma Reforger represents the first step towards Arma 4. It’s a flexible, creative, fully-moddable platform that will be used in the future and offers a glimpse at what’s to come.”
Arma Forger could be a “glimpse” of what is to come. Could we see Arma expanding to PlayStation soon? This brutal shooter seems to be trying to make the series more accessible. Arma Reforger is smaller than Arma3‘s giant 270-kilometres. This means there’s less terrain to conquer this time. Are you up for the challenge? You can dive in right now.
