Massive battles in online games are the basis of several online games available to PC gamers. The Arma series is no exception as its entire point lies in that previous statement; especially with Arma 3 and its potential for 100+ player lobbies. Today’s discussion topic revolves around the possible future of the series.
A leaked document on the Gaming Leaks and Rumors subreddit talks about the future of the war sandbox series. Basically the thread is about Bohemia Interactive (the developers of the game) who had plans to make Arma 4 somehow leaked. What’s leaked is pretty big as it comes in the form of not one but two new games, the first of which is Arma Reforger.
Arma Reforger is said to be a title that aims to set key points for the second title, Arma 4, including things like the Enfusion Engine. According to a leaked marketing PDF, it will also be released on consoles, specifically PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series and Xbox One. The leaked document also continues.
The game is set in 1989, during the Cold War era, and you, the player, are tasked with building a “sustaining military career” by fighting as either US or Soviet forces on the fictional mid-Atlantic island of Everon, identified as Spam is called 52 k2. The game will likely have many of the same big battles the series is known for, albeit in the form of a normal shooting game.
The document also talks about several other features that will be available in Reforger. In addition to the multiplayer modes, it will also include the Game Master scenario editor, a multiplatform workshop and full modding support. The game aims to “offer tactical depth while remaining accessible to a wide audience, including console users.”
Additionally, Arma 4 has also been mentioned in the NeoGAF thread, as well as an alleged live stream taking place to reveal this information and more. Said live stream is scheduled to take place this Tuesday (May 17, 2022) at 2pm EST/7pm BST. It actually comes from this live stream happensThe Bohemia Interactive team will unveil both Arma 4 and Arma Reforger.
