Eurogamer did a nice preview of the upcoming (stand alone) expansion for Armed Assault 2 called Operation Arrowhead. You can read the full hands-on preview here. A few quotes from the Eurogamer preview:
"Instead of fudging FLIR tech with the help of a few greyscale filters, Bohemia Interactive has gone the whole hog, giving every unit in the game (including hogs) its own heat map. Exposed flesh shines like a lighthouse, as does wandering fauna."
"Arrowhead's environments and materiel are looking fantastic, but if Bohemia intends to ship another mil-sim with a faulty campaign, they can expect a very hot LZ"
Expect Operation Arrowhead to hit the shelves on June 29th this year!
