SITUATION
We're now entering the final stage of Tanks DLC's development. Internally, we've been conducting a set of reviews that will help us make several final decisions regarding what additions and improvements we'll still be able to include in the package. It's an exciting process, and we cannot wait to start showing things off to you all!

SITUATION
This SITREP breaks with tradition by starting with a brief announcement from Arma 3's Project Lead, Petr Kolář:

"It's been two years since Arma 3's previous Project Lead, Joris-Jan van 't Land, officially announced that I would take over his role as Arma 3 Project Lead. During that time, we've maintained the direction Joris set out, and Arma 3 got in even better shape since then. A lot of credit goes to our outstanding community of devoted players and content creators, but of course also to our dedicated development team, who have worked tirelessly on improving this precious game. Looking back on many great accomplishments, it's now time for me to pursue a different role within Bohemia Interactive, and so I have the honor to name the next person who will pick up the mantle of Project Lead: Vojtěch 'Iceman' Kovařič. I can say with complete confidence that he's the best person to keep Arma 3 moving forward.

Serving as my wing-man for some time now, Iceman was already the development guardian of the upcoming Tanks DLC, while also taking care of many Arma 3 Main- and Dev-Branch updates, as well as handling both internal communication, and some of the external communication (such as these SITREPs). With Tanks DLC, we're looking to introduce plenty of new improvements to the Arma 3 platform. Afterwards we intend to focus on stabilizing the platform and making it more stable for the many talented content creators in our community, which we believe ultimately benefits everyone. Arma 3 is more alive than ever, even though it's been more four years since the initial release, and with Iceman holding the reigns, its future is bright. Thank you for the support and for making the Armaverse better and better!"

Lord of the Bounce, Project Lead (ret.)

Another year over, a new one just begun, which means, impossibly, even more games.> But what about last year? Which were the games that most people were buying and, more importantly, playing? As is now something of a tradition, Valve have let slip a big ol’ breakdown of the most successful titles released on Steam over the past twelve months.

Below is the full, hundred-strong roster, complete with links to our coverage if you want to find out more about any of the games, or simply to marvel at how much seemed to happen in the space of 52 short weeks.

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time.>

I’ve long possessed a fondness for Bohemia Interactive’s military simulators, ever since Operation Flashpoint invaded my hard-drive back in 2001. But ArmA 3 is the first Bohemia game since OpFlash to successfully modernise that that initial concept, striking a pleasing balance between ambition, accessibility, and stability of play. (more…)

Arma 3 s new single-player mission pack, Tac-Ops, popped into existence last week, introducing three presumably very serious missions to the straight-faced military sandbox. They re tricky, says developer Bohemia Interactive, and you ll need brush up on your shooting, tactical positioning and adaptability. You should also learn some army phrases, but mostly because they re fun to shout. Take a look at the trailer.
