Bohemia Interactive has started the countdown lớn Arma 4 by releasing Arma Reforger in early access - here"s all the trailers and info we have


Arma Reforger

In something of a surprise announcement on May 17, 2022, Bohemia not only revealed that Arma 4 was, indeed, in development – but simultaneously released Arma Reforger, a “creative platform” (playable on PC và Xbox Series X/S consoles) to thử nghiệm out the newest version of the Enfusion engine & “provide valuable feedback for the ongoing development of Arma 4”.

Set on the Czechoslovakia-inspired, fictional island of Everon – the setting of Bohemia’s original 2011 Arma: Cold War Assault – Reforger’s chơi game takes place in a fictionalised 1980s, where American và Soviet soldiers face off using a roster of “era-authentic weapons, vehicles, and equipment”.

Arma Reforger includes two multiplayer modes:

Conflict– two teams compete khổng lồ capture strategic positions from one another by base-building & completing strategic tasks.Game Master – one or more “curator” players create “responsive combat encounters” for the other players lớn take on.

Bohemia says Reforger is also aimed at Arma’s vast army of modders, laying groundwork for Arma 4 to lớn be as much fertile ground for endless modifications as its predecessor.

To wit, Reforger includes a “suite of in-house development tools” called Workbenchwhich reportedly includes the “exact same tools” used to lớn make the game. The modded content users create using the Workbench can then be shared on Bohemia’s “integrated, repository service”– titled Workshop – và can then be downloaded và played by Xbox and PC players alike.


Arma 4release date speculation

Alas, even with the arrival of Arma Reforger, we’re probably still quite far off having a confirmed Arma 4 release date.

Developer Bohemia Interactive has not made any official statements yet as to when we can expect Arma 4 to come lớn our gaming machines – and, on its release, called Reforger the “first milestone on the long road to Arma 4”. All the signs suggest we’ve still got at least a year to lớn wait.

Sure, we only had to lớn wait a piffling four years between Arma 2 and Arma 3, but that was something of a special case. Arma 3 was a serious step change for the series, selling roughly twice as many copies as its predecessor on Steam, & forming a base for 14 DLC expansions (so far), of which the most recent substantial offering, Contact, came out in 2019.

Moreover, the game’s ongoing engine upgrades and improving user generated content tools (not to lớn mention the deep ocean of mods) have made Arma 3 a supremely versatile mil-sim playground – and one for which Bohemia wasstill releasing expansion nội dung as recently as last year, in the size of its community-built ‘Creator DLC’ packs.

Still, with Arma 3’s gameplay and visuals now severely showing their age – especially compared to what Bohemia’s newer Envision trò chơi engine can vị – we reckon it really is just a matter of time.

Arma 4 trailers

While there’s not yetan officialArma 4 trailer online, Bohemia has released theRoad to Arma 4 trailer, includingclips from all the previous games and a teaser for the Arma 4 logo, which you can watch below.


When it’s finally time, we wouldn’t be surprised if Bohemia makes the official announcement in the form of a teaser trailer, though, & rest assured: when it exists, we’ll địa chỉ cửa hàng it here.


Arma 4 leaks & rumours

Unsurprisingly, given how long Arma 3 has been alive và kicking – và especiallyin the long lull between the last full-scale official DLCin 2019– broken only by the excellent Vietnam-focused S.O.G. Prairie Fire Creator DLC in 2021 – fans have been ever watchful forArma 4 leaksthat suggested Bohemia may be hard at work on a sequel.

The May 2022 announcement of Arma: Reforger– the early access proof-of-concept preview trò chơi for Arma 4– is the first major official development fans have seen in years – but it’snotthe first time we’ve heard that title.

Arma Reforger had first surfaced in January 2021, when some apparently leaked trò chơi screenshots carrying a hình ảnh sản phẩm that read “Arma Reforger” were shared over Twitter by a user called
biostiel– whom some community members (on the Arma subreddit at least) believed to be a genuine Bohemia Interactive insider, with privileged information about their current projects.

Authenticinsideror not,
biostiel’s tweets swiftly clarified their claims, saying the trò chơi shown in the allegedly leaked photos was not Arma 4, but rather an unnamed, smaller-scale, multiplayer-only shooter project. It seems likelythis was the same project Bohemia would finally reveal to lớn the public in May 2022.

Biostiel also suggested the next mainline Arma title was “years away”. The
biostiel account, and all the relevant original tweets, have since been deleted.

Discussions of what Arma 4 will look lượt thích have continued beyond Arma Reforger’s release. The Arma Reforger project lead told our sister site The Loadout that Arma Reforger was, in part, about “building a community of modding experts for Arma 4”. The June 2022 interview also floated the idea of monetised mods for the game.


Night gathers, then, andour watch continues. As soon as there’s something more substantial – or, ideally, official – to get our teeth into about Arma 4, we’ll let you know here.
