Here’s the last in Relic’s series of videos introducing the new units of Company of Heroes 2′s upcoming multiplayer expandalone, The British Forces. This time, it’s all about emplacements—that’s your mortars, your anti-tank guns, and your AA. Basically, all the stuff designed to make other stuff explode. Company of Heroes 2: The British Forces will be out on September 3.

Bohemia Interactive released a special Arma 3 developer diary video, providing more details on Tanoa – the new terrain featured in the upcoming Arma 3 expansion, which is scheduled for release in the first half of 2016. The new terrain, a 100 km² South Pacific archipelago, was originally revealed during the PC Gaming Show at E3 2015.

In the developer diary, Arma 3′s Creative Director Jay Crowe and Project Lead Joris-Jan van ‘t Land discuss how the devteam came to a South Pacific destination, describe some of the key characteristics and points of interest on Tanoa, and reflect on development so far and the roadmap ahead.

Tanoa will be the first South Pacific destination featured in the Arma series. Previous Arma locations included the Mediterranean islands of Altis and Stratis (Arma 3), the Eastern-European country of Chernarus (Arma 2), the Middle-Eastern nation of Takistan (Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead), and various other terrains in the fictional Armaverse.

Besides the new Tanoa terrain, the Arma 3 expansion will include new vehicles, weapons, attachments and gear, characters, playable content, and more. The expansion is scheduled to be released in the first half of 2016 and will be distributed as DLC for the base Arma 3 game.
