BI announced today that Global Mobilization will be the next 3rd party DLC. It has been in development for a few years. I thought it was going to be a regular mod, which is unfortunate.

Is this going to be a big trend upcoming for ARMA 3 and ARMA 4? The civilian flight sim and train sim market is pretty much dominated by payware at this point. For sure, a lot of it is good quality, but the really good freeware has been significantly reduced. Will this happen to ARMA 3 too?

From what I understand, most of the buildings are new/custom made. I thought I read somewhere that there is new vegetation as well, and not carried over from ARMA 3. The map/terrain will be ~400sqmm, albeit, probably mostly flat. I've read some comments from prominent terrain makers that they will be using GM assets in their terrains. Some might be running with and without versions of their maps.

What do you say, SimHQ A3 regulars, we in?

I was about to say that I would grab this and it would lure me back into Arma 3... but now I see it's just the German factions... so not interested.

I say sure. It looks interesting, it would give us lots of new vehicles, terrain and weapons to explore and try out. It's not expensive either.

Don't hate the Germans at all, I lived in Germany for 5 yrs, loved it.
However, I waited those 5 yrs to see if the Warsaw Pact was coming over the border... so if this thing was full of the BAOR contingent and US forces I'd buy straight into it.
As it stands, no... I won't indulge.
If however at a later date the British and US are involved I'll buy it.

This might be the thing that finally makes me migrate from ArmA 2 to ArmA 3. Busily adapting my high command scripts now, and conducting some map recces of the area on Google Earth.

This is the first non-VR title that has me pumped for quite a while.

Have a look at the screenshot https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/568004920373149697/569135392964476949/doehren.png posted above, then go to 52°20'17.37"N, 11° 1'6.93"E on Google Earth and look NE. We are looking across an East German border town into West Germany, at a place where there is a bit of a border salient. You can see a border guard tower beyond the tower. The forests in the distance are in West Germany, while beyond that the East German border swings NW.

By the way, Company of Hero's 2 is being given away free by Steam until May 5th. I believe. I think we all have it, but for anyone who does not ....

I’ve been playing Company of Heroes 2 since release. I think it’s been out about 3 years now?
