After recently watching Battle Royale the famous/infamous Japanese movie which focuses around the story of a class of teenagers forced to hunt and kill one another on an island using whatever they can find, it struck me! Why not implement this into ARMA? It can't be that hard can it?

So today I set about on this task and I intend to achieve my goal in creating a gamemode which will make the player feel nervous,excited and annoyed.

So I want to ask you, the players, what type of game you would like it to be.

Here are some features which will definitely be implemented:

1. Random Zones (Every 15 mins 1/2/3 zones are dangerous and anybody inside will die). I am currently implementing this through grid references and triggers

2.This will be the island: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=7838 . It is nice and small and I have the perfect starting position in the centre in an old abandoned construction site

3.The story will basically be that the Russians have decided to create a super soldier so have brought a number of candidates to the island to fight to the death

4.It will be possible to fight the Russians who will only occupy the starting building on the island much like the movie itself and another win condition except for killing everyone might be killing the russian leader or a bonus of a small army may be given instead

I would like to hear from you!

Things I will need advice on include lives and what weapons to randomly spawn across the map

I was thinking of leaving it you die and you are out for good but this would be unappealing. Would introducing 3 lives be feasible?

A little off topic - you only just watched Battle Royale? wow... man this film is so good!
and they even made number 2 which is also worth watching also not made by the same director
as the director of the first one died just before filming of number 2 started! so his son
stepped in to do the film, good but many say its not as good as the 1st.

On topic - This sounds interested, and it would be quite easy to do, make a zone where if
people (students) step out of that zone then they would blow up! think thats the best way
you will get for the necklace around there neck to blow up etc. As for the rest hehe good
luck, ill be watching this topic interested on its development. :-)

1st - Check The Rules! 2nd - Use The Search!

In terms of Zones I was thinking more along the lines of the first movie whereby some zones would become hostile but I'm having trouble making a script for this but nevertheless I shall continue!

And I will definitely get around to watching BR2. Can't get enough of 1 :-)

Hello, this is my first post here on these forums

Just wanted to weigh in a little here, since this is an idea I'm very interested in. Back in 2006, I adapted Battle Royale for JKA and a friend helped me run and supervise it. It wasn't a mod but we held the game on a private server and it was VERY popular. People couldn't get enough of it.

Even though JKA's gameplay wasn't really suitable and posed some limitations, it was still alot of fun. People would form alliances with eachother to remove major threats (the same guy used to win quite often because he was a veteran of the game), they'd trick and backstab eachother, set traps for one another. The first time we played, I formed an alliance with this guy right at the beginning and told him to wait in this area in the map where I knew he'd be cornered, then I took him by surprise and killed him. It was hilarious!

I've been wanting to bring it to Arma 2 for 2 years now because it has almost every necessary element for a game like Battle Royale to work (except maybe the community, I'm not sure it's something people would be interested in). Looks like I'm not the only one who thinks it'd be alot of fun!

I'd like to help in some way but I have absolutely no knowledge of scripting/programming. It's a pity because I'd love to see this come to fruition.

At the very least, we could adapt the idea to Arma 2. I did alot of planning and and messing around with mods and weapons to see what would work well for Battle Royale but I abandoned the idea because of my personal life. I had some decent ideas though of how to go about it but without scripting, it'd obviously need supervision (if it is multiplayer, as I intended it to be). Ideally, you would want a mod.

Ah I forgot about this mission, I had done about 50% of the work and my HDD went bang. Would have been overshadowed by DayZ anyway....


If anyone wants to continue this mod please do so!

EDIT: Just noticed there is a multiplayer mod Battle Royale. Search on youtube
