With the long-awaited realistic military simulator now out of its testing stages and into the spotlight of release, Bohemia Interactive's ArmA 3 is the closest you will get to performing real life military actions without the need to get out of your chair. With a large amount of changes from previous ArmA titles including dynamic lightning and underwater gameplay under their belt, the question now turns to how does ArmA 3 deliver on these realistic proposals?
To help us dive into the graphically intensive military simulator is head solider Joab Gilroy, who finds out just how large of an area the Altis island covers and marvels at butterfly shadows.
Underwater missions, accomplished vehicle physics, an impressive array of player stances and fantastic visuals can't make up for a too-big map full of nothing and a handful of missions most computers and servers can't fully handle. I'll tell you what though, Arma III is going to be a great game in 2015.
