Bohemia Interactive has announced that Arma Reforger is available in Early Access. Moreover, the company confirmed the development of the next part of the Arma series, Arma 4.
Arma Reforger will showcase the studio’s progress on their new Enfusion engine and offer a glimpse of things to come. Functioning as a creative platform, Arma Reforger will provide multiple tools and services for users to modify and adjust the experience.
As a standalone installment, Arma Reforger serves a platform for players to enjoy the new capabilities of Enfusion as well as to provide valuable feedback for the ongoing development of Arma 4. Besides this, Arma Reforger hopes to empower Bohemia Interactive’s dedicated community of modders with an exciting new suite of integrated, in-house Enfusion tools.
Drawing on the success of Bohemia Interactive’s debut game Arma: Cold War Assault, Arma Reforger returns players to the island of Everon and a familiar fictional 1980’s setting. The terrain itself, part of the fictitious Malden Islands archipelago, has been reimagined and faithfully recreated, with added improvements, such as lakes, ponds, and flowing rivers; each a popular feature request, made possible through Enfusion. The terrain, spanning an impressive 164 km2 area containing 51 km2 of landmass, offers players a stunning environment to discover, replete with dense forests, low-rolling hills, mountains, patchwork fields, and idyllic towns.
In terms of playable content, Arma Reforger comes with two multiplayer game modes. These are Conflict and Game Master. Conflict is a team versus team mode, where players work together in order to capture strategic positions from the enemy. Game Master is is a real-time scenario editor. In this dynamic sandbox, one or more curators take on the role of Game Master, creating responsive combat encounters for other players.

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.”
