Bohemia Interactive is ready to pump out more new content for ArmA II: Operation Arrowhead. First, it was the British Armed Forces.  This time around it's Private Military Company.  The add-on will contain a new playable faction with an original single-player campaign and a 2 player coop mode along with the requisite new weapons, vehicles, and engine upgrades.  It all sounds pretty great and ArmA II: Private Military Company will be priced at $9.99 here in the US.  More details are in the full press release.

The trailer below is just a taste of some of the tense situations you'll face.  It contains some colorful dialogue that is probably NSFW for most of us.  Enjoy!

Arma 2: Private Military Company ingame video released

A new video update about the forthcoming add-on to Arma 2 has just been declassified - take a look at the work of private contractors from a different perspective!

Prague, Czech Republic 4th November - Bohemia Interactive, the award winning Czech independent development studio, is pleased to announce the release of a new ingame video for Arma 2: Private Military Company. This brand new add-on introduces the Private Military Company faction to the already huge Armaversum, and is scheduled for release exclusively for PC on 24th November 2010.

The latest declassified video takes a closer look at the often tough situation faced by private contractors on the ground and the challenges that their very presence poses to coalition peacekeeping forces in the volatile Green Sea Region.

One year after British and coalition armed forces successfully quelled the insurgent uprising in Takistan, the NATO Green Sea deployment is in the process of a strategic drawdown of its combat troops in the region. Private military contractors shoulder the burden of the increased workload, with competition rising between the multinational organisations for lucrative security contracts. Private Military Company, ION, Inc. (formerly Black Element), successfully bid for a contract - codenamed Black Gauntlet - to provide security for a UN investigation team as they seek to piece together information regarding Takistan's abandoned nuclear weapons programme…

Arma 2: PMC, a new addon for Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead, will feature:
· New playable faction - Private Military Company
· Original singleplayer campaign with strong storyline unfolding across more than ten missions
· Fully implemented 2 player co-op mode
· New map featuring abandoned wasteland style military weapons test range environment, built upon brand new models and textures
· Unique new character models
· Exotic new weapons (AA-12, fully modelled XM8 variants)
· Detailed new vehicles (Ka-60 'Kasatka', Armed Helicopter UAV, Armoured SUV)
· Numerous new engine updgrades, including full Shotgun Ballistics Modelling and in-game Video Playback

Facility OKB-754 was the central hub of Takistan's nuclear weapons programme, which reached it's zennith in late 1999 with the detonation of a 5-10 kton device, before being forcibly abandoned due to sanctions from the international community. The test site was devastated by an underground detonation, which exceeded the expected yield and breached the surface of the ground, distributing a small quantity of radiation around the immediate area; forcing any local activity out of the region.

Operation Black Gauntlet follows a new recruit hired by ION, Inc., the PMC group tasked with providing security for a UN investigation team persuing information pertaining to Takistan's abandoned nuclear weapons programme, as he executes a conflicted contract - spanning the breadth of the volatile nation - from inception to termination.
