Bohemia Interactive released a new playable teaser for Arma 4 today. Arma Reforger is a little work-in-progress taste of what MilSim fans will eventually get to experience in Arma 4, whenever that may be released. As this is just a sampler, it's priced at a sampler price of just $30 (USD).

Arma Reforger is out now for PC via Early Access as well as on Xbox Series X|S via Game Preview. This release is meant to showcase the work on the new Enfusion engine while also offering a taste of what's to come. Arma Reforger is said to function "as a creative platform" that will include "multiple tools and services for users to modify and adjust the experience."

Today's release is also going to allow fans to provide feedback for the ongoing development of Arma 4. Plus, those that enjoy making mods for the Arma titles will get early access to the tools they need to get to work on mods for the Enfusion engine.

Arma Reforger takes players back to the island of Everon in the 1980s, the same island that the first Arma title, Arma: Cold War Assault, took place on. This island has been reimagined and recreated with some improvements like lakes, ponds, and flowing rivers. Every inch of the 164 km2 area is recreated including 51 km2 of landmass.

Playable content includes two multiplayer game modes. There is Conflict, a team vs. team battle where players try to work together to capture areas on the map. You can build bases and complete tasks to earn promotions. It's the Americans vs. the Soviets in this mode, each having their own unique weapons, vehicles, gear, and equipment.

The second mode is Game Master, a sandbox like mode where one or more players take on the role of Game Master. These Game Masters create combat encounters for other players. This is supposed to be a fast-paced, mod-compatible mission-maker that should result in different playthroughs each time.

Arma Reforger is also launching with access to something called Workshop, not to be confused with Steam Workshop. Arma Reforger's Workshop is an in-game platform that will allow for users to easily share content, even on console.

Workbench is another tool from Bohemia Interactive. This is a software package that just gives the community the same development tools that the dev team is using to make the game. Those with some knowledge of C# scripting will be able to create custom AI behaviors, audio and visual assets, or even create completely new gameplay mechanics. Artists will be able to import their creations.

A "final" release date for Arma Reforger v1.0 is not known. It will leave Early Access and Game Preview only when it's considered complete. Support for this pretty extensive teaser for Arma 4 will continue as the team continues to work on Arma 4 in the background.
