Along with all the other great changes this patch brings (like a distant grass layer which was in ArmA but missing from ArmA 2 until now), patch 1.05 will also feature a new vehicle, the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, and a new Warfare mode. Video and full press release after the break.


Prague, Czech Republic, December 11th 2009 – As a continuous commitment to its dedicated fans, Bohemia Interactive, an award winning independent development studio, and IDEA Games, an association of independent developers located in the Czech Republic, today release an exclusive sneak peek teaser video together with pack of four screenshots introducing the forthcoming patch which will upgrade the military simulator ARMA 2 to version 1.05.

The video, available for download at www.arma2.com, introduces the bonus campaign “Eagle Wing“ featuring the new AH-64 Apache attack helicopter. The “Eagle Wing“ mini-campaign expands upon one of the seven unique endings of the original ARMA 2 over two extensive new levels; It's the year 2012, the war in Chernarus has overgrown into a conflict between the USA and the Russian Federation. The player finds themselves caught in the middle of an escalating conflict. As a pilot of the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter, the player's task seems easy - to get behind enemy lines and attack. However the situation is about to change rapidly...

Amongst other things the 1.05 patch features a new warfare mode "When Diplomacy Fails", including 3-side support for diplomacy between all factions allowing players to enjoy the strategic part of the game in a size never seen before. Warfare mode is a unique gaming experience first introduced in ARMA: Armed Assault. The mode combines tactical FPS gameplay with strategic elements which allow players to either join the fight in the front lines attacking the enemy directly, or to crush them in a commander position giving orders to other players whilst managing resources and the main base. Moreover each player is allowed to lead his own squad. Up to 32 players are supported, this multiplayer mode is a true war experience.

“At Bohemia Interactive we make a continuous commitment to support our products. This latest update 1.05 reaffirms our commitment to ARMA 2 and our community at large: it includes the free downloadable content as our way of saying thank you to all those who buy our games and provide us support and feedback from around the globe. We continue to be amazed by the many ways our community is constantly expanding on our game with addons, mods and usermade missions. With this level of continued activity surrounding our game it's our pleasure to be able to support it this extensively post-launch.“ said Marek Spanel, Bohemia´s CEO.

ARMA 2 patch 1.05 will be released later in December 2009. Stay tuned and visit the ARMA 2 homepage at www.arma2.com for the latest Intel.

I like it, its very cool. I'd like to make this kind of signatures, but I can't find a "guide" to make them. Out of that, awesome.

Yeah that would be good as well.

It's the best racing game of 2009, and probably the best engine of the year too.

What about #5 or #6 with white guns, and "infected" instead of "zombies" I like the spacing of the guns better in 5 and 6. You can see the progression from Pistol, T1, T2 and Melee a lot better. ...

I like #3 the best. The white colored weapons stand out well against the dark background, and "infected" is a better term, plus the closeup shot of Ellis is pretty nice.

I personally like the last two (which are the same with a different campaign played) best.

I also wouldn't let children under the age of at least 13 near any of those games. Some of them even longer.
