Hi all,
I'm very new to Arma, having wanted to find a detailed, cooperative and tactical game for a very long time. I'm currently upgrading my PC to run the games, but wanted to ask a quick question about which format would be the best to purchase.

There appear to be two options for the new Arma 2 player: Download via Steam or buy the PC DVD.

I would like to have Combined Operations as well as PMC & the British addon. The PC DVD for Combined Operations is very difficult to buy on PC DVD here in the UK now, but Arma X is available both digitally and physically.

    What are the advantages/disadvantages of buying via Steam over buying the PC DVD?
    If I purchase Arma X, will it install automatically as Combined Operations?

John

I don't know what I'm doing.
