Arma 2 Free Announced

The Arma 2 Official Website announces Arma 2 Free, a free-to-play multiplayer version of Arma 2, the military shooter sequel from Bohemia Interactive Studios. They say this is set to launch this month, and offer this launch trailer to celebrate the news. Here's word:

Arma 2: Free redefines the free-to-play battlefield with its truly unrivalled scale and gameplay possibilities. Arma 2: Free serves up almost everything offered by the original Arma 2 - the '13th best PC game of all time', according to PC Gamer - minus the campaign, HD graphics and support for user-made addons and mods. Arma 2: Free is scheduled for release in June 2011.

Create your own custom-built scenarios or deploy a massive selection of missions and game-modes made by others. No micro-transactions, no hidden costs, just the same epic terrain and huge variety of equipment! This is Arma 2 Free - virtual war without the training wheels. Arma 2: Free to download, free to play, free to share, free to host, free to create... free to play redefined!

No HD gfx?!
Not familiar with the game, what does this mean

It means it'll work on more people's systems

Considering what they did with the DLC content, I imagine it means low resolution textures. And using lower resolution textures didn't really help in ARMA2 since the performance issues were elsewhere

lack of support for user-made mods and addons means you won't be able to connect to any of the multiplayer servers running the retail version and will be missing out on a major reason for playing single player user created campaigns.

I wonder... BE Warfare was no-mods necessary quite long and it was quite a lot of fun... except when you were fighting the AI or just bored driving through wilderness. As I understand, the mission editor is quite flexible even without modding.
