ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead Trailer

A new trailer from ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead shows off the just-released standalone shooter expansion from Bohemia Interactive Studios. The new clip is from the tutorial for the High Command system, described as a "lesser-known" feature of the game. Word is: "The walkthrough provides a sneak peek at the tutorial available in-game and demonstrates the simplicity of commanding larger groups of units; issuing direct orders, setting waypoints and conditions, and assigning the behaviour of groups of units. Getting to grips with the simple command interface is important, and doing so reveals an entirely distinct type of gameplay experience. High Command is a powerful tool, which puts you in dynamic control of the entire battlefield situation in a real time strategy viewpoint - with as much, or as little control, as you like." The embedded version of the clip follows.

Imagine if they used euphoria and some other middleware? It would be fantastic, but that's not going to happen. You can see how hard it is to make a game like this by playing Dragon Rising. With all of those resources to draw on you got a watered down arcade shooter with not much variety in anything - weapons, vehicles, landscape or missions.

I hope that Dragon Rising keeps going. I don't knock it for trying and I hope that one day someone will make a sim that makes ARMA2 look like crap. But it hasn't happened yet, and there are no released in the pipeline that have been announced. No other game simulates running around in this huge battlespace better than ARMA, and I love the FPS camera work and HDR blindness and the organic way each game plays out differently.

So BIS will focus on Carrier Command for the time being and perhaps if they continue the ARMA franchise we will see more improvement.
