It’s a new year, but over the holiday season, the community certainly didn’t lose its spirit. Players from all sides came together to spruce up the area with these festively decoratedÂ Christmas trees, an official addon on our in-game Workshop. Thanks toÂ AkiKayÂ for sharing this image over on the Arma Discord. We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and we look forward to a happy new year of Arma Reforger!
You might get a fright if you’re driving across Everon, suddenly the lights flash on, and you find yourself face to face with a Soviet checkpoint. Photographed byÂ Something SomethingÂ on Discord, we see forces stopping a local civilian late at night. Ensure you’re not out after curfew.
Sometimes it’s just you, your truck, and a quiet morning drive. Whether running supplies in our official Conflict mode or transporting troops to the front line, logistics is a major part of any war. This is such a tranquilÂ shotÂ byÂ KazantipÂ of the usual road trip.
In the dark, even the smallest light can give away your position. You have to be on the lookout and ready to fight. In this image, two FIA soldiers around the campfire spot a light in the distance and rise to investigate. Another especially well-done image byÂ EOÂ shared on the Arma Discord.
You might recognize this location if you’ve spent some time on our newÂ Arland terrain.Â This church, captured byÂ Matthias Fleischer, is located on the top of Arleville Heights and is one of the key landmarks when navigating the island. Stop inside during your next visit to Arleville and take a moment of respite from fighting. You could also get an elevated, scenic view of the area from its bell tower.
If you want to add more ways of transporting troops into combat or supporting them on the battlefield, a new lightly-armored vehicle has been deployed to theÂ Workshop. Thanks to community modderÂ TheSpaceStrider, players can now ride into action with either an unarmed transport or M2HBÂ CROWSÂ Stryker IFVÂ variants. While still work-in-progress, there are plans to add more variants of the vehicle. We’re excited to see where this project goes.
Arma Reforger was set in 1989, but with a little time traveling, you can be sent back even further withÂ US Forces 1983, a newly released mini-mod! Get your M1 steel pots, M16, and M1911 handguns today. This mod created byÂ TepacheLocoÂ will replace the US faction on all current vanilla scenarios, but if it’s only the gear you’re after, you can check out the equipment-only version on theÂ Workshop here.
If you are looking to enhance your experience against the AI in Reforger, then take a look atÂ ATiM-‘sÂ CRX Enfusion A.I.Â update! This detailed mod changes the behaviors of your enemy and provides Game Masters new features such as adding stances, setting skills, and new sets of behavior waypoints. To get the full details, download it on theÂ WorkshopÂ or follow their progress on theÂ Arma Discord.
There is new content you should see from custom scenarios! If you want a new single-player experience, tryÂ SPEIRA, a new multi-part mission with progressing questlines, traders, and dynamic gameplay. Created by fellow Bohemian,Â Koutsou, we highly encourage you to give this scenario a run.
While we’re very much on our road to Arma 4, we’ve been so glad to see so many in the community get excited for the future of the series. Many community members have been sparked with amazing creativity, such asÂ E. Hartmann, who has put together aÂ splendid renditionÂ of the Arma Reforger main theme song. It’s a great listen, and thank you for your support on this journey.
As said in previous COMRADs, there are many opportunities for players to connect with other players in the community. Whether it’s learning the tools, playing with some friends on public servers, or joining units such as theÂ 2nd Ranger Milsim. They enjoy large operations on the field, and they’re always willing to help others learn the ropes. However, there are many other communities as well that can be found on ourÂ Arma Discord.
At the beginning of December, we released our first Milestone Update -Â Ground Support. Which released a large set of new content, features, and fixes. Community VeteranÂ Ceb.CinÂ breaks down this update wonderfully in his latest video. Be sure to give hisÂ videoÂ a watch and catch up on the latest additions.
As part of the Ground Support update, we dropped the first iteration of our new dynamic, cooperative, multiplayer-oriented game mode – Combat Ops. In thisÂ videoÂ byÂ 3kliksphilip, he lays out some of the key features of the game mode, its purpose, and provides a little history from the beginning of our series. We highly recommend viewing it over on hisÂ YouTube channelÂ if you want to learn more or read about it from ourÂ website.
