Arma Tactics (PC)

Arma Tactics is a turn-based, close-combat strategy game, where the player takes control of a four-member Special Forces team. There are no provided strategies, rails for movement, or paths to follow. The player must decide how to play through the story-driven missions and generated missions with randomized objectives. Players need to use strategic thinking and both basic and advanced weaponry while facing opponents ranging from unorganized local militia to skilled mercenaries.

Arma Tactics has PC-specific improvements, including high-detailed textures, post effects, high-detailed light maps, enhanced shaders and shadows. Controls are optimized for the mouse and keyboard, and there's also full support for a gamepad.

PC-exclusive campaign: Terrorists seize and threaten to destroy a dam unless their demands are met. You must infiltrate the area and make sure the dam remains safe. The campaign features additional stages, enhanced visuals and new game mechanics, such as silenced weapons and mortar fire.

Arma Tactics is available on Steam for $8.99/€6,99/£5.99.
