The latest installment in the award-winning Arma series, Arma Reforger, is leaving Early Access on Steam and the Xbox Game Preview program today. With the release of version 1.0, players on PC and Xbox consoles can experience cross-platform multiplayer PvPvE battles.
Important additions include the helicopters and a brand new supply system. Version 1.0 means that Arma Reforger's core gameplay functionality is now live. But as the recently updated roadmap shows, this was just the beginning.
Development with community feedback
Arma Reforger was released in Early Access on May 17, 2022. Since that day, the development team has worked tirelessly on the project's roadmap, listening closely to community feedback to shape the game's continued development. A variety of new assets and features were added during Early Access, including the island of Arland, an extensive medical system, new weapons and mines, as well as numerous performance improvements and optimizations.
With the completion of the features in the Ground Support milestone and the addition of helicopters and the resupply system, all of Arma Reforger's core gameplay features are now built in. Therefore, the development team felt that it was ready to leave Early Access.
Although version 1.0 marks the official release of Arma Reforger, development of the game continues until the project's roadmap has been completed.
Players take to the battlefields of Arma Reforger in two multiplayer modes. In “Conflict” they choose a side and fly to the islands of Everon or Arland. In Game Master, you can edit scenarios and manage events as you guide other players through the chaos of war. Conflict mode has been completely redesigned for version 1.0, focusing the action on a new and improved supply system. To achieve victory, it is no longer enough to push back the opposing army by force of arms. Securing and redistributing supplies is at least as important - just as in real-world operations. Players can also compete alone or cooperatively in “Combat Ops” mode, which pits them against enemy AI in missions on the island of Arland.
• Authentic Cold War elements: Players choose to fight on the side of the US armed forces or the Soviets with iconic weapons, equipment and vehicles from the 1980s. With version 1.0 you take to the skies and experience a new perspective with the help of the Soviet Mil Mi-8 transport helicopter. This adds a new tactical dimension and grants a higher level of mobility across the battlefield. Players surround the enemy, rescue comrades or simply carry out logistical flights with this legendary helicopter.
Arma Reforger features complex core in-game systems that add additional depth and realism to the simulated military experience. An extensive medical system allows players to heal or even revive themselves and others. The new supply system allows the construction of specific buildings to repair and refuel vehicles, as well as strategic logistics operations. This gives the gameplay a comprehensive dimension of tactical authenticity. In addition, realistic ballistics, ballistic protection devices and a vehicle damage system provide a foundation for countless hours of addictive gameplay.
Thanks to the Enfusion engine, the community can create their own mods for Arma Reforger using the exact same tools used to develop the game. Players can create new mechanics, assets, gameplay scenarios, and more and upload them to the Workbench to offer to others as downloads.
Technology for future decades
While earlier Armatitles were all based on the Real Virtuality engine Reforger weapon Developed from the ground up using Bohemia Interactive's all-new Enfusion engine. This offers additional functionality and even more captivating in-game environments for the renowned military simulator.
The Enfusion engine represents 20 years of game development experience rolled into one powerful toolset. It combines the clean architecture, portability and ease of use of the Enfusion engine with the scale, multiplayer capabilities and simulation depth of the Real Virtuality engine.
Since the game was developed from the ground up in parallel with the new engine, this means that features are not simply copied from previous releases of the Armafranchise could be taken over. Therefore, there was close cooperation between the teams Reforger weaponand the Enfusion engine are necessary. Although this takes a little more time initially, it paves the way for a much richer feature set with significantly more possibilities than seen in any previous Arma title.
Players will experience authentic combat for the first time in the Arma series on both Xbox and PC.
