Next ARMA 2 DLC Next Month

There's an ARMA 2 interview on Rock, Paper, Shotgun discussing the military shooter sequel with Karel Moricky and Jay Crow of Bohemia Interactive Studios revealing that the next DLC for the game is expected on November 24 for 7.99/8.99/$9.99. The new content is called Private Military Company, as it will allow players to go all Blackwater Xe Services, and word is it is focused on cooperative play: "The whole campaign is co-op multiplayer compatible. Instead of creating set of loosely connected campaign, single player and multiplayer scenarios, we focused solely upon a cooperative campaign. All missions will be playable in two-player co-op, giving you the opportunity to invite your friend and share your progress. Missions are built upon a broad range of different gameplay elements which enforcing team play, like sniper/spotter or helicopter pilot/door gunner situations."

What it does have though, is a brain dead, always cheating AI and horrible physics. If you ever drove a Tank or vehicle in arma 2 you know what i mean

Surely its a fun game in MP with good group of players. But in SP the game is just plain crap. I still fondly remember that 1 mission where you have to blow a bridge - with tanks falling down the entire way... and not "dieing" So there were about 5 enemy vehicles down in the water shooting at me. And in the rare event a downed bridge works the enemy always magically knew where i was even though i was perfectly hidden.

But the best is still being forced to drive in an AI vehicle and the AI being stuck in a curve or corner. Or ramming head on an ally tank. Or driving down a cliff, seen it all.

And lastly of course, the AI not engaging the enemy properly. With the player often having 50+ kills and the AI 2 or 3. Its like we get a different even more broken AI when we have squad mates.

Maybe they fix it in Arma 3.... one can still dream!
