ARMA III is an open world tactical shooter simulator game currently in development by Bohemia Interactive. ARMA III's storyline takes place in the mid-2030s during the fictional Operation Magnitude, where NATO forces deployed in the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea are trying to hold off a massive Iranian military offensive from the east. During the single player campaign, the player will take the role of a British Special Forces soldier, Captain Scott Miller. The player must survive on their own after friendly forces are defeated in a failed NATO operation. During the campaign, the player will face everything from lone wolf infiltration missions to the commanding of large scale armored operations. The player will be able to choose different objectives and weaponry (such as UAVs, artillery, and air support) for an unique play style. ARMA III takes place on the Aegean islands of Altis and Stratis of Greece, in the Mediterranean Sea. They feature photo-realistic terrain and water environments that the player can use to their advantage to suit their own play style. Altis will be the largest official terrain in the Arma series with ground area covering approximately 270 km2. The smaller island, Stratis, expands over an area of 20 km2. The islands will feature over 50 villages with buildings that are both enterable and destroyable. ARMA III is in alpha stage and available via Steam or Bohemia Interactive's store, in its current alpha stage there is still a lot to do and add to the game like more vehicles and better optimization but the game will continue to grow with both official and user content. Pick up the early access now from Steam and get Alpha, Beta and the full game once it's released.
