    Be warned objective 1 is setting all ya keys up.. Just messing it's great to have a game that puts a keyboard to good use.

    BTW Arma 2 looks good too..

    Thinking about it Arma 3 will be the only game i pay top doller for this year unless some thing crazy happens and NWN3 is released lol.

    Rumor on the BI Studios Forums has it that the ArmA III Community Alpha will be released very soon. Open to all. It even shows up in the Steam Database.
    http://steamdb.info/app/107410/
    Word is that the Alpha will be released either this spring ~march-April or This Summer.

    *************************************UPDATE*****************************************
    From what I have read and watch in Dev Info/Previews, they have really ramped up the AI in ArmA III. The AI still has some work to be done on it but, it is no longer the retarded cousin it once was. It is much more human like. As seen in the footage of the bouncing betty going off. The react like real soldiers do.

    Some good old ArmA II Footage

    Looks good.

    If they fix the interface, controls, and jettery movement I might be interested.

    ^^Video above has confirmed that they fixed the movement.

    *UPDATE: 2/21/2013*
    Arma 3 will be exclusive to Steam
    [​IMG]

    Bohemia Interactive have announced that their upcoming military sim Arma 3 will be Steam exclusive. As revelations go, it seems rather quaint – at this point developers tying their games to Valve’s Steamworks suite is becoming increasingly the norm. It is, however, BI’s first go at distributor exclusivity, and the team seem aware that the announcement will upset some members of their community. The reason for the move, according to Arma 3′s project lead Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, is that, without Steam, the team wouldn’t be able to release the game in 2013 at all.

    “Some of you will remember the huge amount of different distributed versions for Arma 2, and all of the problems associated with it,” he writes. “We needed to spend far too much time on creating and testing all the master copies. Every patch had to be tested for every conceivable combination of distribution, patch and DLC. This drained so many of our resources, that we could not support the game itself as much as we’d have liked. By targeting Steam as our primary distribution, we can take those resources and put them to much better use: making the most splendid game possible.”

    Van ‘t Land also points to Steam’s proven distribution infrastructure and ready-made developer tools, as well as the dreaded P-word. “Think of it what you want, but piracy is affecting us as a business.” He claims that Bohemia are working on expanding Steam’s DRM solutions, announcing, “It will be possible to run Steam in Offline mode, and still play the game (with the exception of online services obviously, including multiplayer itself).”

    As for the release, Bohemia say they’re gearing up to announce further details in the near future.

    It includes both Beta and Full Game not just alpha access. there is also the free invite method but good luck on that. I may send you one though. IRRC, BF3 did something similar with the Premium package or was that Borderlands 2?

    And ArmA X edition too which is currently going for 49.99USD on Steam.
    I'm going full out. ~90USD is a lot but it includes a lot too.

    that is why I'm sending you a key. Did you get Diablo 3? I believe there was a preorder thing to that as well.

    does not look like it. We will find out though. perhaps you will like the SP and such and go for the Alpha or something. Only time will tell. The Rest of the packages do though.

    They you don't need to send me a key, since I can just sign up for the free alpha access anyways.
