First-Person Shooters

arma-reforgerBohemia Interactive is proud to announce the official release of Arma Reforger!

As today’s launch trailer reveals, this latest installment in the Arma franchise (via Steam), returns you to authentic Cold War combat in a flexible military sandbox. Arma Reforger has been built from the ground up on the all-new Enfusion Engine, bringing additional functionality and more immersive in-game environments to the renowned military simulator.

We are extremely proud of this release. With Arma Reforger, we started from scratch, and have been tirelessly working away to rebuild every pixel, every single line of code, and to reforge all of our knowledge from previous titles to bring you a new and improved Arma experience. Arma Reforger is a brand new foundation to build upon and the first taste of the future of Arma on Enfusion. This release marks the beginning of a new era, and there are many more features and improvements to come,” said Jan Dušek, Project Lead of Arma Reforger.

Featuring crossplay for both Xbox and PC, Arma Reforger transports players to the mid-Atlantic islands of Everon (51 km2) and Arland (10 km2) to battle it out with a range of historically accurate weapons, vehicles, and – helicopters!

Take to the skies and experience a different perspective with the new Soviet Mil Mi-8 transport helicopter and the US UH-1H utility helicopter, which provide a much-needed tactical dimension and allow for greater mobility across the battlefield. Envelop the enemy, extract friendlies, or simply fly logistics with these iconic and lovingly recreated assets.

Additionally, the Conflict game mode has been completely redesigned to center the action on a new and improved supply-based system. To achieve victory, it’s no longer enough to push back the opposing side by force of arms. Securing and redistributing supplies are now equally important, just as they are in real-world operations.

We would also like to emphasize that while 1.0 marks the official release of Arma Reforger, development on the game will continue, and our team is working tirelessly to fulfill the plans according to the project’s Roadmap. There are many more exciting features inbound, so be sure to follow us for further updates!

To our loyal community, we’d like to extend our thanks for all the valuable support and feedback, and we can’t wait to show you what the future of Arma on Enfusion has in store.

Blockbuster Campaign Featuring Open Combat Missions.

six-days-in-fallujahVictura and Highwire’s first-person tactical shooter Six Days in Fallujah received its first new content today, with the release of the Wargame update.

With an all-new new game mode: Wargame, as well as weather and time-of-day cycles, night-time flares, sandstorms, FUBAR (Hard) Mode and more control over every mission through procedural sliders, Six Days in Fallujah is the ultimate simulation of the uncertainty of combat.

The latest update features some game-changing additions, including:

New Mode: Wargame
Wargame gives players extensive control over mission parameters before loading into the AO. Not only can players now choose specific missions and roles, they can also customize a multitude of battlefield conditions, like time of day, weather, building density, AI posture, and more.
A new rhythmic cycle of darkness and light during missions as bundles of flares are launched into the sky and illuminate the area of operations before slowly fizzling away. Be careful! Flashlights and muzzle flashes alert insurgents to maneuver against you in the darkness.
Your biggest threat is no longer enemy AI, but reduced visibility that comes with sand particles, dust and debris, and heavy wind – all of which also messes with your comms. The Intensity of the sandstorm depends on the procedural roll, and it may even roll through the AO halfway through the mission. Just like Flares, the next mission is unlike any other.
Hard Difficulty (FUBAR)
The most adverse conditions are now available as an option for each mission, dialing up the intensity of the battle. AI enemies implement complex strategies and behaviors. ‘Survival Rules’ mean no re-spawning from the AAV and ‘No KIA Allowed’ ends the mission when any of your fireteam is killed.
Procedural Sliders
Players can now control timer length, or remove it entirely, as well as increase or decrease building population both internally and externally, change the dynamic of missions from an internal hunt to a sparsely populated shoot-out.

Check out the Wargame Update Trailer HERE.

six-days-in-fallujahVictura and Highwire Games has launched first-person tactical shooter Six Days in Fallujah in Steam’s Early Access, priced at USD 39.99. EUR 38.99 and GBP £32.99. Featuring four co-operative, four-player missions, Six Days in Fallujah’s urban maps are generated procedurally, simulating the uncertainty of combat, and offering unlimited replayability.

The most realistic simulation of urban combat to-date, Six Days in Fallujah is developed with help from more than 100 Marines and Soldiers who served in the Second Battle of Fallujah, as well as more than two dozen Iraqi civilians and soldiers. Based on true stories from the battle, Six Days requires players to overcome real-world scenarios with their fire team by using real-life military tactics.

In the coming months, additional features and content will be introduced, including:

Night-time Missions: Knowing what lies around the next corner is hard enough during daylight hours. Gameplay evolves with even more tension with the addition of night-time missions, as more are added throughout Early Access.

Weather variation: While night-time missions will add to the procedural architecture, weather variation will challenge players and add to the complexity of missions.

“Go” Command: Later this year, take control of your AI teammates with unique tactical control, drawing inspiration from real-life tactics.

Single Player Missions: Specific moments from the second battle of Fallujah from those who were there, including Special Operations Missions, Civilians and more.

Expected to remain in Early Access for one year, Six Days in Fallujah will expand its tense, and challenging tactical shooter, with a full release for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S.

six-days-in-fallujahModern War Through the Eyes of Those Who Were There

Victura and Highwire Games today announced their upcoming first-person tactical shooter Six Days in Fallujah will release on June 22, 2023, through Steam’s Early Access program. The game will launch with four co-operative four-player missions. These missions are set in urban maps that are generated procedurally every time the game is played to recreate the uncertainty of combat along with unlimited replayability.

Six Days in Fallujah is a highly realistic first-person tactical shooter developed with help from more than 100 Marines and Soldiers who served in the Second Battle of Fallujah, as well as more than two dozen Iraqi civilians and soldiers. Based on true stories from the battle, Six Days requires players to overcome real-world scenarios with their fire team by using real-life military tactics.

Watch the Six Days in Fallujah Early Access Announcement Trailer HERE.

“The way we play video games right now is not how people fight in real life,” says Sgt. Eddie Garcia, a Marine who was wounded during the Second Battle of Fallujah. “Six Days in Fallujah requires tactics and teamwork that are more like real combat than any other game I’ve played.”

Six Days introduces many new technologies that make combat more realistic:

Procedural Architecture re-shapes the inside and outside of every building each time the game is played. Just like the real battle, players never know what to expect.

Block-scale AI is a dramatic new approach to AI based on insurgent tactics from the battle. Unlike games in which AI is constrained to move in very small areas, AI enemies in Six Days can go anywhere on the battlefield, and they will stalk, flank, and ambush players while coordinating their attacks with each other and luring players into difficult situations.

Global Dynamic Lighting simulates real weather and lighting effects dynamically, so visibility shapes gameplay, especially as players move between blindingly bright outdoors and terrifyingly dark indoors. Realistic smoke, dust, and weather effects complicate visibility in unpredictable ways.

Tactical Indoor/Outdoor Sandbox. Players — and their AI enemies — are free to approach challenges from any direction in Six Days in Fallujah. Rather than breaching a house through a front door, for example, players might choose to climb to a rooftop, or cross rooftops on wooden planks, to attack from the top down.
In Early Access, Six Days in Fallujah will focus initially on the experiences of US Marine fireteams on the first day of the battle. As Early Access develops, players can also choose to play cooperatively as special operations or Iraqi soldiers fighting alongside coalition forces, and players will begin to encounter civilians as the battle progresses. Victura also plans to release additional co-operative missions, as well as story campaign missions recreating real stories from the Second Battle of Fallujah from the perspective of both coalition forces and Iraqi civilians.

The Second Battle of Fallujah began in November 2004 after Al Qaeda in Iraq seized control of the city of Fallujah. Six months later, Iraq’s prime minister ordered a military operation in which Iraqi soldiers fought alongside American and British forces to re-take the city. Within a few days it had become one of the world’s bloodiest battles in half a century.

Six Days in Fallujah began development 18 years ago, just months after the battle ended. Conceived by a Marine who was wounded during the battle, more than 100 Marines and Soldiers, along with more than two dozen Iraqis, have helped with its development. The game was canceled in 2009 by the game’s original publisher, Konami. Development restarted in 2017 when publisher, Victura, partnered with developer Highwire Games, a studio founded by many of the original Halo and Destiny leadership.

The PC version of Six Days in Fallujah will launch into Early Access on the Steam store on June 22, 2023 at a price of US$39.99. The full release of the game is expected to be available for both console and PC in 2024. More information about Six Days in Fallujah is available at

sniper-elite-5Saboteur pack includes the TERA rifle, Grease Gun and a Liberator character skin

Rebellion, one of the world’s most successful independent video games developers and publishers, has today launched the Saboteur pack, the latest content drop for Sniper Elite 5’s Season Pass Two. Saboteur gives you access to the TERA rifle, Grease Gun and a Liberator character skin for Karl to complete the Resistance look. Additionally, Rebellion has also launched a new No Cross map called Rhine Crossing which is available now for free in multiplayer. The Saboteur Weapon and Skin Pack is now available on Steam.

You can see a new trailer showcasing the Saboteur content and the Rhine Crossing map HERE.

Available now, as part of Season Pass Two (priced £24.99/$29.99/€29.99), or as a separate purchase for £8.99/€9.99/$9.99, Saboteur includes the Type 1 TERA, which provides a rapid rate of fire with good accuracy thanks to its low levels of recoil. Featuring a folding stock for improved portability, the TERA is incredibly fast to equip and aim down the sight.

Players will also receive the Grease Gun, an SMG with great mobility that is very easy to control, even under sustained firing, thanks to its low rate of fire and recoil. Despite its low muzzle velocity, the stability and control on offer make it a solid choice for slightly longer ranged combat encounters.

Finally, the Liberator Skin celebrates the liberation of Paris. Karl can now sport a classic French Resistance appearance complete with signature armband.

The new Rhine Crossing No Cross is available now and is free to all players. Based on the battle of Remagen at the Ludendorff Bridge in Germany, the new map is set at night and the iconic towers on the collapsed bridge offer the highest vantage points on either side of the no cross zone. With diagonal sightlines across the corners of the map and cover offered by the remains of the bridge, players will have to be at their stealthy best and make use of the dark to prevail.
