Bohemia Interactive announced today that Arma Tactics version for PC, Linux and Mac is now available via SteamPlay. According to the team, Arma Tactics will take advantage of SteamPlay, thus everyone who purchases the game will receive PC, LINUX and MAC versions in one. The Linux version will be available on October 3rd, while the MAC has not ETA as of yet.
This new version of Arma Tactics will receive a number of PC specific upgrades/improvements, including enhanced visuals (high-detailed textures, post effects, high-detailed light maps, enhanced shaders and shadows). Controls will be also optimized for PC (mouse+keyboard) and there will be full support for gamepad.
Arma Tactics is a turn-based close-combat strategy game, where the player takes control of a four-member Special Forces team. There are no given strategies, rails to move on, or paths to follow; it‘s up to the player to decide how he will play through both the story-driven missions and generated missions with randomized objectives.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the “The Evolution of PC graphics cards.”
