Arma 3 is a massive military sandbox shooter with a focus on teamwork and user created moments. The multiplayer is the true focus of the game, with hyperrealistic squads of players communicating across vast distances to defeat other squads with weapons and vehicles.
A multiplayer experience like no other, Arma 3 plays in a more tense and strategic way than other similar titles. Players can join a vast number of play modes with different objectives, but all retaining the core of teamwork and precision. Form a squad of players, take on positions and objectives and outwit your opponents. Since its release over three years ago, Arma 3 has remained one of the most popular multiplayer games and with good reason. The ability to create content with the base product lead to the mod Day Z becoming popular enough to warrant its own release. New play styles and maps are constantly released for free through the dedicated fan base.
Arma 3 is not for everyone. Someone familiar to COD or Battlefield will feel lost faced with communicating through radio and transmitting coordinates back to a helicopter at base. The action is pieced out through planning rather than simply thrown out haphazardly. For those willing to listen and learn, however, they will find a game with endless repeatability. A modern classic.
