ArmA: Armed Assault

Free downloadable add-ons abound thanks to fans' content-creating efforts.

Prague, Czech Republic January 6th – Bohemia Interactive and IDEA Games are today pleased to announce that number of free add-ons available for ArmA: Armed Assault is growing every day.

Join the ArmA community! Enlist for duty in ArmA, one of the most realistic open space modern combat simulations ever created. Join the great community and get dozens of free downloadable add-ons of all kind available on ArmA headquarters: from tons of new weapons, units, vehicles and aircrafts to completely new maps, terrain models, scenarios and full sized complex modifications covering real military forces. ArmA headquarters access is located here: http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ArmA:_Addon_Groups, http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/News_Websites.

More than two years from its initial release ArmA: Armed Assault (released also as ArmA: Combat Operations and ArmA: Gold) still have incredible potential which is far more above other military simulation titles released on PC. Thanks to amazingly huge community and public modding tools, since days of Bohemia Interactive's first PC release Operation Flashpoint*, ArmA: Armed Assault became another unique open platform for military enthusiasts on the PC.

“Active and creating community is the best satisfaction and compliment for each game developer and we are very happy to see our work is inspiration and drive for our fans. I would like to thank to all members of ArmA: Armed Assault community. This support is helping us in our work of the forthcoming project ARMA2” said Marek Spanel, CEO of Bohemia Interactive.

ARMA2 will be available across Europe in 2009.
