As a commander in Arma Mobile Ops, you are tasked with managing your military base, protecting it against enemy raids, and building your own military force to send out to battles. While fighting the enemy in fast, action-packed clashes for air and ground supremacy, you need to secure and manage resources in order to upgrade your base and unlock more powerful defenses, units or buildings.
Set in the near future, Arma Mobile Ops’ theater of war has you visiting detailed Mediterranean battlefields where basic infantry units march alongside a powerful army of air and land drones. With each battle fought under your command, your units rank up and improve their stats, becoming a larger threat for enemy base defense structures like cannons, mortars or walls.
In addition to the story-driven singleplayer campaign revolving around a fierce fight for freedom, you can also take part in classic PvP matches or join other players in establishing an alliance of commanders. Together, you can fight your way to the top of the online leaderboards and leagues, securing some sweet resource packages as a reward.
While featuring in-app purchases that can help you skip some waiting times, Arma Mobile Ops allows everyone to enjoy the same gameplay experience.
“The game rewards players for skill, patience and proper base management – there is no substitute for having a precisely composed base and a perfectly combined army of ranked up units. You just need to master the art of war if you want to win the toughest of battles in Arma Mobile Ops” adds Jan Herodes, the Project Lead of Mobile Games Development at Bohemia Interactive.
Arma Mobile Ops is available worldwide as a free download on the App Store and Google Play. The game supports all mobile devices running Android 4.3 or higher or iOS 8.0 or higher and is developed by an in-house team team of over 20 developers dedicated to development of mobile titles and new projects utilizing the Unity Engine.
