505 Games' ArmA II, developed by Bohemia Interactive, is scheduled for release on PC in June 19, 2009, and yet unspecified console(s).
Discussion and info about the recent release of the game.
(German version will be officially sold tomorrow but as usual some stores started early.)
Of note is that there's a bunch of bugs reported already and it seems that a early update will be released, possible on the same day as the game is released or shortly thereafter.
(Seems German version came out a bit early seeing as the EU publisher 505 is still some way from a release, unsure about the US version.)
Just got the game, I posted some screenshots here. Performance is greatly varying, I only adjusted the resolution so far (1920x1200) and it stays above 30fps most of the time. The complexity and detail is amazing so far, you can drive/fly/use every imaginable vehicle and command small to very large, army-sized troops. I'll check out the MP later.
amazing screens! oMFG i want console versions pls!
EDIT: and i want to purchase DIGITAL VERSION if available! FGS i cant wait this to come Turkey after 2 months! i dont want to use unlegit copy either..DAMMN! There must be a DIGITAL PURCHASE SOMEWHERE
OMG!! What? HOW!!?? Where? It's already out?
We got lucky this time. It is out in Germany today, the English version is scheduled for the 19th of June or so (which I don't understand, the game I have is in English, just with an option for German subtitles).
Our Server will host this game but we want to wait untill it is fully released as
when our players tried the German version for 1 it was a nightmare to run as English.
Hurry up June 19th.
Ok, I've played for around two hours now. In the first mission (a small village) performance was acceptable (+30-40 fps). On the second mission though (a small city) performance is horrendous, I'm averaging 15-18 fps. This is on 1920x1200 with all settings on Medium, Win7 RC x64. Asides from that, the AI does not work at all, enemies do not react to the player. I can walk right up to a buch of them and they do absolutely nothing. This definitely needs patching.
Edit: Rumors say BI will release a patch tomorrow.
Ohhhh I see I could get it too!!! But be honest, will it even run on my machine?
So basically this game is in english? Only subtitle are in german? Voices and menus are english too? Damn I want at least demo. I hope it will be out next week...
Menus are German, Voices English, Subtitles German
Games wont come out till 19th in europe, 1 week later for Australia and who cares for US
cool, now if they would just finish operation flashpoint 2 already. i loved ofp and especially all of the community made mods. when arma came out i bought the czech version cause it wasnt going to be released in the states for another month, there was a community made patch to have english menus, then they finally released a official patch. the one thing i disliked the most about arma from ofp was the horrible vehicle controlling, just was never as good as it was in ofp, i havent tried driving anything though since the latest patch. maybe ill have to just get this (arma2) to hold me over until this ofp 2 is released, although it seems to be going the way of duke nukem heh
Same devs who made ARMA 1 , what you expect? they never was good & optimising
Go play Crysis or Farcry if u want a lame game that is the same as all the other games peter...
OFP, ARMA1, ARMA2 Are Games in there own league, Nothing...and i mean nothing is on there level.....
German release has a few bugs, AI is mixed. Performance/look/atmosphere is great. A beta patch is announced for today, final one next week. The update to get on the same level like the european release on June 19th by 505 is said to be out later this month.
Armed-Assault.de Community - Review/Teaser Trailer
A few screenshots:
I am fan of OFP myself.. But many OFP players dislikes ARMA, because of huge resource sucking , bugs, runing animations, which makes think soldiers has some poop in their pants , vehicle control.. anyway it has less smooth gameplay too
Get a new computer....mine runs fine..
And to say OFP is better is just kidding yourself....
theres something called opinions sir.
At any rate, this game looks awesome and looking foward to its release in the us. The gameplay with trackIR looks even sweeter.
While i agree on opinions....This is One that Makes no sense whatsoever..
OFP is not better than Arma...period... ( while it may have a better campaign thats not the debate the game itself is)
