Arma 2 took video games to new and realistic heights as it endeavored to deliver a true experience of what it was like to live and fight in a warzone. Now, you'll get to experience the next step in the adventure in a standalone DLC that will give you new reasons to play, an all-new story to take part in, and a brand-new massive map to explore. This is Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, and you better be ready for what's coming.

This game is set three years after the events of Arma 2, and not surprisingly, a new area has become part of a warzone. When an area in the Green Sea becomes engulfed in battle, the US army and other nations forces combine to go and try and free them. To do so, you'll get to use soldiers of various types and skillsets, from simple soldiers to pilots of some of the fastest planes on Earth, all are options in your mission to free the island.

Just like before, the real world is brought full-stop into gaming as you'll experience 100% accurate depictions of weapons and technology as you try to complete your tasks. The guns act exactly how they do in the real world, and new technologies like thermal imaging and more have been brought in to increase the realism even more.

Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead gives you not one but three new areas to explore as you try to save peoples lives. Will you be able to get the job done?
