Project: ARGO

Bohemia announced ‘Bohemia Incubator’ today: a platform for Bohemia to create and test more experimental games on a much smaller scale than Arma. They announced two games along with it: Ylands, and Project ARGO.

Ylands is a kid friendly Minecraft-esque sandbox game, which is apparently based on complex simulations, and features an EDEN style editor, all built in Unity.

Project ARGO, on the other hand, is a full conversion mod for ArmA 3, based on more fast paced, 5v5 PvP. This is good news even if you’re not a fan of Project ARGO itself, because it likely means some improvements to A3 as a whole (Likely to do with CQB).

Currently, both games are in a free, publicly available early alpha ‘prototype’ stage. You can get it at

So if anyone wants to play some ARGO, just give me a shout on Steam / Teamspeak!

p.s. If the mods think this thread is better suited in ‘Other games’, then please go ahead and move it.

I’ve seen it and I don’t know what to think about it. It’s like taking everything that’s good about Arma and throwing it away. Let me elaborate:

  1. The scale is 5 vs 5. There are dozens of games that have better gunplay & netcode than Arma like Rainbow Six Siege, Call of Duty etc. Arma is primarily meant to be for larger scale battles.
  2. It’s respawn based. See capture the flag post. Good grief is all I can say.
  3. It also suffers from netcode issues like Arma does. Red chain is very prevalent in most videos.

I think what [user avatar=“” name=“Dachi”]12591864[/user] and [user avatar=“” name=“Xander”]12587882[/user] are doing is much much better in terms of Arma player versus player gameplay. It’s related to the vision of Arma as MilSim engine where "you can get as close to the battlefield without being shot".
