Bohemia’s confirmed a 2012 release for ArmA 3, it’s super-realistic war sim, which is to be “set on an authentic Mediterranean island modeled from the real geographic data.”

The official site’s here.

ArmA III’s a PC exclusive and “will offer a unique sandbox-style combat gameplay experience in the most detailed environment of the series to-date.”

A single-player campaign will see you “evolve from a lone prey into a military commander” and allow you to control a “multitude” of aircraft, vehicles and ships.

You’ll be able to “shoot from anything from pistols to the sophisticated weapon platforms.” Sounds neat.

The game will allow you to “choose your uniform, assemble your weapon kit, change your loadout, get encumbered,” and will “take advantage of PhysX” tech.

Both co-op and competitive multiplayer will be included, “with full support of dedicated servers for both Windows and Linux.”

A mission editor will also feature.

Bohemia Interactive is the developer of the original Operation Flashpoint, and turned its attention to ArmA after Codemasters took over the IP.
