Looks very pretty. The features list is impressive.
The campaign sounds, well, ****ty. but BIS has never, ever been known for good campaigns. Arma II's Chernarussian campaign was actually pretty well done and enjoyable, but the OA, BAF and ION campaigns were abysmally bad. It's clear that no matter how much work BIS puts into their games, their campaigns and most SP and MP missions will be shit. Polished shit, to be sure, but clearly designed and created by people who have no idea what the fuck they're talking about. Except, again, the Chernarus campaign. Whomever did that had either done their research or knew WTF they were doing.
That being said, 95% of all user-made missions are horrible too.
And as an old OFPer, our motto was always "We don't want the game, we want the game engine!"
I spend literally 100% of my Arma2 time in the editor or playing missions I've made in the editor. If I could wrangle up some people I'd like to play with, I'd play online. But no public servers for me.
When did OFP/ArmA ever used real world historical plot?
No but they've essentially based all of there games on actual or at least plausible conflicts. OFP was the Cold War going hot mixed in with the Falkland Islands. ARMA I was a mediterranean version of the Korean War. ARMA II was the Georgian Conflict if the US intervened (or alternately, a retelling of Ghost Recon), OA onwards is Afghanistan and Iraq mixed together. This new scenario sounds way too much like a copy of the Battlefield and Tom Clancy franchizes for comfort.
Then again, so long as they are able to provide a giant editor for me to mess around in, I'll be happy.
on an unrelated note, I would do horrible, unspeakable things if it would ensure that a Mi-28/Ka-50 like the one in the screenshot becomes a reality.
