arma2Bohemia Interactive has announced an upcoming standalone expansion for their recently released ARMA II computer game. The expansion, titled Operation Arrowhead will be presented during the Gamescom (19-23 August), but there is no announced release date yet.

Set into the new, visually attractive environment of hilly central Asia, Operation Arrowhead will offer realistic combat simulation experience in a modern day setting with unprecedented freedom of movement, actions and tactics. Players will enlist into various roles within the US Army, from basic infantrymen, through special operatives, to pilots and tank crew in this new installment in the award winning line up of military simulators for PC from Bohemia Interactive.

“Bohemia Interactive is fully committed to supporting the existing ARMA II user base whilst also working on the expansion pack, this will not only allow us to introduce a new and original theater of war to the simulation series, but also improve numerous areas of the core game, for both the original game and the expansion, where we can go even further with adding completely new features” said Marek Spanel, Bohemia’s CEO.

As long as the improvement of the game will indeed exist and the price won’t be extremely high, I think that this standalone expansion for ARMA II will be a welcomed addition, at least by the fans of the game.
