Developers Bohemia Interactive dropped a nice surprise today, not only announcing a new Arma game, but revealing that it’s playable right now on Steam.

If you’ve never played them, the Arma games are notorious for their (relative) authenticity, going hard on things like physics, ballistics and communications. Some of their likely core concepts include aiming and arcing arcs around deep space, firing lasers, teleporting from planet to planet, getting stuck in module capacitors, and a whole slew of things that might turn the kid crazy if left unchecked.
