What is the early access Arma Reforger?

Bohemia Interactive has released its new Arma game over the week, now it is purely multiplayer and in Early Access – Arma Reforger. It’s like preparing for a full Arm 4, where on the one hand they test the engine and tighten it, on the other hand multiplayer, which they can adjust according to the reactions of the players. We wrote more about this in a separate extensive article during the presentation of the game and the confirmation of the four.

You are already slowly appearing and on Steame currently has 62% game rating (the game is also available on the Xbox Series XS as a game preview, you can play it there for two hours for free). However, it is an evaluation of Early Access, where there are still many errors that will be fixed and tightened. Add news as well.

In principle, however, it currently offers a decent basis. This is mainly a better functioning Enfusion engine with improved visuals compared to two. Although the optimization is not completely ideal and I went for the RTX2080 Super in 4K around plus or minus 30 fps instead of around 40-50, as I get challenging games, but still quite decent and quite stable. More or less of the visual errors appeared only occasional flashing of colored textures on the ground.

However, the size of the world, which is always very large, is impressive. Now it’s an island again Everon (52 km2), which was already fought in the original Operation Flashpoint and which is still at the center of the struggle of America and the Soviets. And there is also typical Czech architecture, so you will see famous houses, elements in the villages and brands. The whole thing, of course, is in modern graphics. It is not a perfect and complete nextgen, but still sufficient and the nature beautiful. Looking closely, nothing offends. Only maybe the LOD of the trees could be worked on even better, because the trees in the background do not create the best scenery.

In terms of gameplay, expect the classic hardcore Arma gameplay, and therefore no viewfinder, no bullet indicators and not even a pointer on the map. You have to deal with a clean map and compass. Nor is it a Call of Duty during a shootout, and even a single blow from a distance can mean death. Often, however, just an injury where you have to reckon with the fact that there is no automatic regeneration, but rather bleeding, which further reduces health. You must stop it before you bleed with a bandage and then treat yourself with a first aid kit.

The AI ​​itself is also rough, as are the natives who defend both the Americans and the Soviets and are well trained, at least in shooting. They are not very good at movement and tactics, but when they shoot, they are accurate enough. Thanks to this, you can also play the game yourself, as you can create your own server and just enjoy the environment, eliminate AI and train.

Quite often it will be all you have left, because the network code is not ideal, sometimes it is not possible to connect to the servers, other times it often disconnects and even the code directly in the game is not the best in the field of intrusion detection.

The game itself now has a training that takes you through the battlefield, and offers modes, two multiplayer modes Conflict and Capture and Hold and a separate Game Master.

Conflict is extensive multiplayer with two sides and designated goals. Respectively, the main goal is to capture the enemy’s radio at its base, which is not fast given the size of the island. Therefore, both sides must gradually occupy the AI ​​base and move forward. It’s a great persistent game mode where it’s about controlling the island.

If you want something faster, look at Capture and Hold in the server list, which will be a smaller mode with a certain base occupancy with a selection of a preset class and spawn near the target.

A maximum of 64 players play, 32 players on each side. Subsequently, communication is the basis, as well as a slow tactical process. You need to be careful at every step, cooperate, have a good team or the whole well-played side, so that you can effectively push the enemy. It’s not for everyone. The authors try to get closer to the real fighting, and in the end they also did training simulations for soldiers. Unlike real battles, however, with the difference that when they kill you here, you respawn at the base.

As for weapons, there aren’t many at the moment. There are several basic types of weapons that you can equip in Conflict mode right on the base. Whatever you take, you will then be on the battlefield, and you must also supply ammunition so well. Depending on the rank you have already reached, the vehicles in your garage will be unlocked. Don’t expect tanks here yet, but the best is an armored personnel carrier that will help in battles. However, you start with a standard jeep, which is enough to quickly move the map to the desired destination.

Game Master, on the other hand, is more of a sandbox mode similar to the Arma 3 Zeus editor. This will allow you to create a multiplayer game against one side against the AI, add troop units to the game, deploy vehicles, camps, barricades, as well as cannons and machine guns, and create an interesting experience for players.

This option may be interesting for modifying the game in the future. The game supports mods on both PC and Xbox. You can download modes created on a PC on Xbox Series X / S consoles, where the game is available in Game Preview.

If we evaluate this first version so far, the base there Bohemia is not bad, it is much better than Arma 2 in its release. However, they still have a lot of work to do in terms of content, engine tightening and especially network code. Nevertheless, it is one of the better early access titles when it starts. However, it may still be too set up for Arma players, and they could easily add casual server settings with various simplifications to expand the community.
