Arma 3 Beta begins soon; Alpha players can get it now

The Arma series was once explained to me as games that try to simulate every aspect of being a soldier on deployment, including the confusion, boredom, and plain unfairness of being a low-level grunt surrounded by machines and men trying to kill you. This is no Call of Duty or Battlefield. This is a series that takes great pride in the fact that you can be killed by a sniper a kilometer away and there’s nothing you can do about it because sometimes the other guys just have better toys.
