Prague, Czech Republic, 19th August 2010 - Bohemia Interactive, the award winning Czech independent development studio, is pleased to announce a new trailer for Arma 2: British Armed Forces (BAF). Next in the line-up of military simulators, this huge add-on for the recently released Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead deploys on August 26th and delivers a new campaign, numerous single missions and a brand new faction, expanding upon the already epic collection offered up by Arma 2's mil-sim sandbox.
Players take on the role of British paratroopers and engage the enemy on an asymmetric battlefield. Less than two months after Operation Arrowhead successfully routed the Takistani military regime, NATO coalition forces face a large-scale outbreak of guerilla insurgency. A mechanized force of British troops is about to deploy and embark upon a large-scale counter-insurgency campaign, which will define the future of the coalition presence in Takistan: Operation "Crimson Lance".
BAF provides an opportunity to explore the beautiful country of Takistan in even more depth, and offers the chance to hop across the border to Karzeghistan in the Shapur e-Dalanper region - a brand new area included as bonus content. A small, strategically important area, Shapur consists of pockets of densely developed settlements and industrial complexes within its regional boundaries, located just on the Karzeghi side of Takistan’s volatile borderlands. Unprecedented freedom of movement, action and tactics - together with hundreds of unique models and epic sandbox-style maps - create the most authentic military simulation game available in the world today: war without the training wheels.
With British forces moving in to initiate a counter-insurgency campaign, players can outfit themselves with Multi-Terrain Pattern uniforms and DPM smocks designed for arid desert areas. Amid the array of the available armaments are the trademark L85A2 infantry assault rifles, machine guns in the form of the L86A2 Light Support Weapon, the L110A1 and the legendary GPMG, along with the L115A1 Long Range Rifle and the formidable AS50 for snipers. Vehicles include the modernised Warrior and Jackal 2 MWMIK armored trucks, with air support provided by Apache AH1 gunships and AH11 Wildcat multirole helicopters. The Merlin HC3 and Chinook HC2 are the backbone of airborne troop transportation.
Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead is available now! Check out the project´s homepage www.arma2.com and learn more about Arma 2: Combined Operations - a unique collection of the original Arma 2 and the massive standalone expansion pack, Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead.
Arma 2: British Armed Forces will be deployed exclusively for the PC on 26th August 2010. It will be available for GBP 7.99/EUR 8.99/USD 9.99
