Arma 2 getting free version

You’ll soon be able to experience the horrors of war for no extra cost; Bohemia Interactive are developing Arma 2: Free.

This free to play multiplayer title ditches the campaign portion of the original Arma 2 and strips it of its HD graphics and user-generated content in order to provide a cost-free service. However you’ll still be able to build custom scenarios and take on a large selection of missions already included in the game.

Bohemia promise that there won’t be any micro transactions or hidden costs, but we bet they’re hoping this will make you pick up a copy of Arma 3 when it comes out next year. Free will release later this month.
