    Having heard so many people saying they were upgrading for this, the specs seem (relatively) low. Am I missing something?

    I play Arma 3 with 570 SLI and it works very well much better than Arma 2 which does not seem to like SLI which is a bugger.

    Re: News - Tactical military shooter Arma 3 to be released on 12th September

    Arma II was the most buggy, hopeless excuse for a game I've seen in a long time. Missions that wouldn't run because some NPC had run off somewhere, sound and graphics glitches, I could go on but I won't. Needless to say the bad taste that Arma II left in my mouth means I won't be rushing out to buy this one...

    This game has got me back into gaming, it's beautiful and nothing comes close to the immersion. Occulus Rift and this would be insanely cool.

    Where it's not so good is netcode and optimisation for the massive environments, 3 is much better than 2 but it grinds my system to below 50fps frequently on multiplayer servers, SP seems to be fine. This is on quite a powerful GPU and CPU rig, it's somewhat of a given that ARMA grinds any machine down.

    Still, love the game, just wish I had more time to get into it.
