    Good news for the players who want to try Arma II.

    What do you mean, when it says : there aren't High Definition Graphics?

    I bet it means scaled-down texture quality, probably comparable to the lite versions of the DLCs.

    Great move, BI! I wish you many new players (resp. customers )!

    Dying Ember | Resistance campaign for Arma 3
    Black Lands | Resistance campaign for Arma 2: CO

    For The Life Of A Friend | SP scenario for Arma 2: CO
    Evil's Last Will | SP scenario for Arma

    I see, you wanna get people accustomed (or addicted in the best case ) to ArmA before you release the pimped up ArmA 3 with new features, engine etc.

    Nonetheless, nice step forward.

    Looks like a great Demo for the REAL arma. It shows of the real long term potential the game offers to it's players.
    I mean seriously, who buys arma only to play the campaign?
    The only problem I see is the missing mod support. It will be close to impossible to find MP games without mods.

    I don't think that is true. I was always able to find non-mod servers.

    Basically an extended demo, pretty smart move.

    Congrats BIS, so why no big reveal AT E3? I believe you would steal lots of games their thunder, still awesome you guys are in a position to do something big like this for free.

    Cool let's see what gameplay mode will be the most popular here.

    Don't think the MP is integrated with our MP is it?
