If you’ve always wanted to see what it’s like to be a real soldier in a battlefield, or well, if you’ve always wanted to see how a military simulation is, then you should be playing ArmA 2, especially its new standalone expansion pack, Operation Arrowhead.

Turns out that Bohemia Interactive cares for folks like you, and has released a demo available for download right now, that weighs in at 3 gigabytes of space. So if you’ve got the sort of bandwidth to be downloading that, go right ahead and hit the link. As for what it contains,
Three boot camp training missions, one full mission titled “Coltan Blues” which comes from the main campaign, three multiplayer levels and… surprise, surprise, the mission editor. The editor is likely to be missing most assets of the game due the demo size, however.
