Official Overview

The horrors of WWIII are imminent. There are clashes over the Malden Islands from dusk to dawn and you are caught in-between. You must use all of the available resources in your arsenal to hold back the incoming darkness. When Victor Troska came back to Nogovo, he thought the pain of war was left buried in his past. But his dream lies broken now. His worst nightmare returns when military forces lands near Nogovo.

ArmA: Cold War Assault includes Bohemia Interactive's debut game published by Codemasters as Operation Flashpoint in 2001 (and its expansion). This game is a genre-defining combat military simulation and was a bestselling PC game. It has won many international awards, including "Game of The Year" and "Best Action Game." Over 2 million copies of Operation Flashpoint have been sold since its release.
