In the hope of seizing what seems to be a well-guarded military secret, Operation Magnitude is launched.

Everything goes to hell however and the mission is compromised, leaving you washed ashore upon the hostile island.

Bohemia Interactive´s CEO, Marek Spanel said:

Ivan Buchta, Creative Director of Arma 3 also added:

”Our ambition is not only to deliver the next generation of Arma with the improved engine, but also to fully exploit the potential of our new technology in the gameplay. You can look forward to the unique experience of blending sandbox-style combat with a rich story.
