General
 

Michal Harangozó informed us the release date for the much anticpated DLC, Arma 2: Private Military Company, has been pushed back.
This delay is due to the implemention of ARMEX, the Multi-Player Armory - a new unique feature, introduced last week in a developer's video update for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and Arma 2: British Armed Forces.
Previously the release was schedueled for November 24th, the new release date is Tuesday 30th November 2010.

Arma 2: Private Military Company - Tuesday 30th November 2010.

ARMEX, the Multi-Player Armory - a new, unique feature, introduced last week in a developer's video update - will be also available for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and Arma 2: British Armed Forces.
The original Armory mode - an interactive library featuring all in-game models - was first introduced in Arma 2. Building upon this unique game mode, the Multiplayer Armory enables players to try out all weapons and every single vehicle model from Arma 2 in dynamically generated missions with up to eight friends online or over LAN!

"The new Multi-Player Armory feature is so exciting and promising, that we decided to implement it to Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead and British Armed Forces as well" said Marek Spanel, Bohemia´s CEO. He continued: "unfortunately, implementation over two games - particularly where these are already released - is a difficult process, and requires extra care. The gameplay gets a new, fresh stimulation and we're sure it's worth it".

About Arma 2: Private Military Company:
One year after British and coalition armed forces successfully quelled the insurgent uprising in Takistan, the NATO Green Sea deployment is in the process of a strategic drawdown of its combat troops in the region. Private military contractors shoulder the burden of the increased workload, with competition rising between the multinational organisations for lucrative security contracts. Private Military Company, ION, Inc., successfully bid for a contract - codenamed Black Gauntlet - to provide security for a UN investigation team as they seek to piece together information regarding Takistan's abandoned nuclear weapons programme…

Key Features:
  • New playable faction - Private Military Company
  • Original singleplayer campaign with strong storyline unfolding across more than ten missions
  • Fully implemented 2 player co-op mode
  • New map featuring abandoned wasteland style military weapons test range environment, built upon brand new models and textures
  • Unique new character models
  • Exotic new weapons (AA-12, fully modelled XM8 variants)
  • Detailed new vehicles (Ka-60 'Kasatka', Armed Helicopter UAV, Armoured SUV)
  • Numerous new engine updgrades, including full Shotgun Ballistics Modelling and in-game Video Playback

Facility OKB-754 was the central hub of Takistan's nuclear weapons programme, which reached it's zennith in late 1999 with the detonation of a 5-10 kton device, before being forcibly abandoned due to sanctions from the international community. The test site was devastated by an underground detonation, which exceeded the expected yield and breached the surface of the ground, distributing a small quantity of radiation around the immediate area; forcing any local activity out of the region.
Operation Black Gauntlet follows a new recruit hired by ION, Inc., the PMC group tasked with providing security for a UN investigation team persuing information pertaining to Takistan's abandoned nuclear weapons programme, as he executes a conflicted contract - spanning the breadth of the volatile nation - from inception to termination.
