Arma Reforger will feature “basic in-game monetization but no DLCs or future microtransactions are currently planned.

“Arma Reforger delivers a polished sample of Arma 4 gameplay built upon our brand new Enfusion technology” and will allow players to immerse themselves in “tactical depth and yet remain accessible to a broad audience, including console users.”

The game is also poised to be set in the Cold War era, in an “alternative 1989” where players will “develop a persistent military career and join either US or Soviet forces in a fierce battle for the strategic island of Everon.”
