You can now afford more ammo!

We're reducing the price on Arma 2: Combined Operations, the ultimate mod-enabled FPP military simulation that comes with the Operation Arrowhead expansion. It's now available on GOG.com for only $24.99.

War has always been, and probably always will be, one of the predominant themes in computer games. From 8-bit systems to contemporary monster gaming rigs you'll have simulators, strategy games, and war-inspired arcade titles. But there's only one type of game that could let you really see war as a first-hand gritty and immersive experience: FPS, first person perspective shooter. Again, there are many levels of realism throughout the genre. Some of the war FPSes tend to focus on storytelling, using heavy scripting to deliver a cinematic experience. Others don't try to hide the fact, that the war you're seeing isn't real and that the main goal is to have fun while playing. And there's Arma 2: Combined Operations.

Arma 2: Combined Operations is a game that will make you feel like an actual combatant on one of the modern-day military missions. A game that will amaze you with its level of realism in recreating actual weapons, military gear, ballistics, and battlefield conditions. A game that will challenge you in ways no other wargame ever could. Dropping you in the middle of a fictional Eastern-European conflict, that feels more real than most things you see on the news, it proves to be the ultimate modern-day military simulation that you can play outside of actual military VR training facilities. With massive multiplayer matches that can host up to 50 players simultaneously, and the Operation Arrowhead expansion that, on top of adding another campaign to the game, provides extensive mod compatibility, this is the FPP wargame you want to get, if you mean business.

On top of that, Arma 2: Combined Operations is required to run DayZ, the most popular game modification since the infamous Hot Coffe. What? You don't know what DayZ is? Don't fret--we've got you covered.

Do you think you can handle real virtual warfare? Find out if you really know which side of the assault rifle you should point at the enemies in Arma 2: Combined Operations, for only $24.99 on GOG.com.
Nice to see the price drop seems like a good game.
I'm still waiting for a price drop of Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum! .
What was the price before the price drop?
Pricedrops are always welcome

But I would welcome more pricedrops on these titles:

This may sound strange, but given the ridiculous way that economics is designed, they're actually priced okay. As long as you buy them in a sale. If you buy them outside of a sale, they're horribly over priced. If you buy them in a sale, they're around what you should pay anyway. It's like shops with loyalty cards, the discounts are factored in when making the regular price.

So, never, ever, ever, ever, ever buy anything that isn't on sale I think is what the suits are trying to teach us.
Interesting that this game is such a hit on STEAM, but it's not selling very good here.

I'm not sure if that is true or not, but Steam has millions of users, so i would expect it to sell better there.

I don't expect that GOG will sell more copies, because as you just said STEAM has probably a lot more users. But it's constantly for months in the TOP 10 Top Sellers on STEAM, while I haven't seen it in Top sellers list here yet. Not even during the holiday sale when it was 50% OFF. It's quite low if you order all games here by bestselling.

It's 4th bestselling game on STEAM right now and it's not even on sale. It's outselling the new DmC and the others.

I know, but I wonder why it's not the same here?
Maybe people are afraid that:
- GOG version might be incompatible with DayZ
- Multiplayer component in GOG version might not be compatible with STEAM or other versions
- GOG version lacks automatic updates
?

Personally i'm not very interested in online multiplayer games. Perhaps there are a lot of GOG users who feel the same way?

I would think so to at least some degree, at least as far as what people associate GOG with. I think maybe the association is good old games = no multiplayer, at least Halo/COD-style kind = prefer singleplayer to get away from people for a while. (or something like that) Steam, on the other hand, has developed a aura about itself that is inviting for those who want multiplayer (ala TF2), maybe because of the virtually-constant internet connection requirement, ability to add friends/talk to people, etc.
War. War never changes. But it does get cheaper. Sometimes.
