E3 2013: Arma III

Arma III game footage.

In just less than two weeks from now -- June 25, 2013 -- Arma III will release to PC in beta form, though you don't have to wait until then to see what the upcoming open world tactical shooter is all about. Maximum PC Online Managing Editor Jimmy Thang made his way over to Arma III's booth at E3, where he was able to record several minutes of gameplay footage and extract some information about the title.

Like previous versions, Arma III is influenced by information obtained from real military experts in order to keep the game as authentic as possible. Thang also found out that the landscape will be huge, about 270 square kilometers, the largest yet in the Arma series.

Arma has been known for being demanding in terms of hardware, and it sounds like Arma III won't be an exception, though it sounds like minimum specs will be around a Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB of RAM.

Take a look!

Arma III is scheduled to launch in Q3 of this year.
