Bohemia Interactive announces the rebirth of a Legend - Arma: Cold War AssaultPrague, Czech Republic, June 23, 2011
- Bohemia Interactive, the independent game development studio, is delighted to reawaken a sleeping giant! Its revolutionary award-winning game, originally released by British publisher Codemasters in June 2001 as Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis, is now discontinued. From now on, this legendary PC game will be available only under a new title Arma: Cold War Assault. This new release also includes the Resistance expansion pack, originally released in 2002 as Operation Flashpoint: Resistance.
All existing users of Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis and the Game of the Year Edition are entitled to download and install Arma: Cold War Assault at no charge. The game will also be released through various online stores in the near future. The award-winning game Arma: Cold War Assault was created by Bohemia Interactive in 1997-2001 and won dozens of Game of the Year awards as well as universal acclaim for its open military simulation. Bohemia also provided the gaming community with a complete set of editing tools and on-going support that turned the game into one of the most modded PC games ever with thousands of different user modifications freely available on the Internet.
"After all these years of continuous support and improvements we are delighted to be able to unite our lineup of military simulators for PC under the Arma brand," says Marek Spanel, CEO of Bohemia Interactive. "This step will not only avoid potential confusion amongst users and the wider gaming public, but it will also preserve what is now a classic PC game for years to come as it could no longer be available under its original name."
This launch is part of a celebration of 10 years of Bohemia Interactive's series of PC mil-sim games, during which more exciting releases will be made in the coming days and weeks ahead.
