We're glad to announce that Bohemia Interactive will be part of one of the biggest game expos this year, the so-called "Heart of Gaming" a.k.a. the gamescom trade fair in Cologne. Here, Bohemia will have its own booth (Hall 10.1), and although Argo will not be playable there, it's still a great opportunity for us to meet you. Some members of the Argo devteam will be present, and you're most welcome to stop by and ask us about the changes in update 1.02 and the future we see for Argo in next updates. We're always looking for feedback so that we can make the Argo experience even better!
Besides being able to meet us at gamescom, there's another benefit to visiting the Bohemia Interactive booth: we have prepared a small but special package of exclusive in-game content for gamescom visitors. You just need to swing by and grab a Steam code for free. The package consists of several appropriately gamescom/Germany-themed caps, balaclavas, and a bandana, as well as the option to use another vehicle in the Editor: the Strider (which is based on Fennek used by the German Army). While we intent to keep these in-game items somewhat exclusive, if you are not be able to visit gamescom yourself, there are still two other options to get the package. You may either ask a friendly gamescom visitor to get the code for you, or you may join the exclusive sort and support our development by purchasing the items in the form of a small DLC pack on Steam. However, note that this DLC pack will only stay on sale for the duration of the gamescom event (available from August 21st until August 28th), and you will not be able to get this anymore after the event ends. Also keep in mind that all of the items are purely cosmetic, and the Strider can only be used in the Editor and not in the official game modes.
If you're attending gamescom, be sure to also check out some of the other games we have playable at the Bohemia Interactive booth. The highlight is our new cheerful sandbox game Ylands, which we also showcased at this year's E3 PC Gaming Show, but we also have Arma 3 and and a sneak peek at a new DayZ build for you to enjoy. Viel Spaß, Söldner - see you there!
