Most games in the military shooter genre make you a god. You have a seemingly endless supply of bullets, you can take many hits and your health will regenerate after a short time, and you can do it all on your own. ArmA (short for Armed Assault) is different. Coordinate with your squad, take cover, and manage your resources, or meet an early demise in this tough as nails military simulator. And with ArmA 3: Ultimate Edition, the scenarios you face and your options to deal with them have never been more expansive.

This Isn’t A Game

ArmA 3: Ultimate Edition takes a very different approach to military shooters than a game like Call of Duty or Battlefield does. The developer, Bohemia Interactive, is known for creating simulation software that is used by militaries all around the world. The ArmA series is their “fun” or “light” version of this simulator.

It trades the smaller, more scripted missions of traditional shooters for large, open sandbox style maps with several objectives. A stamina meter decreases while sprinting or swimming, influencing your level of fatigue. Equipment weight also factors into your stamina meter management. Squad tactics are an important aspect of ArmA. Give your team orders to successfully complete objectives and survive enemy skirmishes. Firefights are tense, as you and your team can only take minimal damage, and med kits take precious time to use. Distance, weather, and your own stance determine your weapon’s accuracy.

If you are trying to take the enemy by surprise, sniping them from a long way off, you have to go prone and hold your breath while you have them in your crosshairs to hit your mark. This realism carries over to the game’s many operable vehicles, which includes a number of different cars, jets, tanks, and boats.

The Whole Package

The Ultimate Edition of Arma 3 includes the base game’s 30 mission campaign, along with every official piece of DLC that has been released since the game launched in 2013. This adds up to hundreds of hours of single player enjoyment before you even touch the expansive online multiplayer experience or player created content.

The included DLCs are Contact, Apex, Tanks, Tac-Ops Mission Pack, Laws of War, Jets, Marksmen, Helicopters, and even Karts, which was an April Fool's joke that the developer decided to implement in the actual game. It includes 20 different Go Karts and numerous objects to use in track creations.

The online system for ARMA 3 has taken on a life of its own, with players creating all different kinds of servers with their own rules and scenarios. There are hundreds of servers, ensuring near endless enjoyment with friends or strangers. ArmA 3 is also Steam Workshop enabled, which allows players to create and share character models, missions, and maps with the community.
