ARMA 2 is a free mmofps and tactical shooter title, and is the sequel to the original ARMA: Armed Assault game. ARMA 2 mixes high-voltage shooter action with real-time resource management and battlefield strategy, to make it an exciting hybrid entry to the mmofps genre. Set in chaotic wartime, you will strike deep into enemy territory and engage enemies in intense combat. Simulation for the game is close to lifelike; bullets pierce and are even deflected based on the material it hits, resulting in a visceral firefights.
The single player campaign plants you deep into the fictional post-Soviet state of Chernarus as part of the elite Operation Harvest Red. The operation seeks to flush out the pro-communist rebels that have taken over the Chernarussian government and end the chaotic civil war that is destroying the nation from within. Operation Harvest Red is a thrilling multi-arc campaign which includes stealth assault on key enemy outposts, and dynamic conflicts between nine factions from across the globe. Each faction has its own standing army of tanks, soldiers and armaments. This is where the strategy element of ARMA 2 comes into play. You will need to manage and control these military assets to take down your targets. Visuals in ARMA 2 are amazingly realistic due to their use of the advanced Real Virtuality game engine, which in real life has been used for military simulation. Developers also allowed extensive modding in ARMA 2 by releasing tools for creating and modifying game content. This has resulted in widely acclaimed mods like the zombie apocalypse mod, which converted ARMA 2 into a survival horror MMO shooter.
ARMA 2 is a retail box game, but there is a free to play version although it comes with some restrictions. Free players will not be able to use high-resolution textures, mods or play with its expansion pack, ARMA 2: Operation Arrowhead or any other DLC, which must be purchased separately. But even with these limitations, ARMA 2 still delivers a value-packed shooter experience. Free players still have the freedom to create custom scenarios or take on the massive bulk of player-made missions. The selection of equipment is decent enough, although not as extensive as the retail version. Multiplayer mode is also fully functional, offering you hours of tactical military mayhem without spending a dime. And best of all – the free to play version of ARMA 2 has no annoying microtransactions store selling you stuff you already get for free.
