ARMA: Armed Assault, is a tactical military first- and third-person shooter, released in late 2006. ARMA was developed by a 40 member team at Bohemia Interactive, an independent video game developer based in the Czech Republic. The game was released with the ratings and PEGI: 12+. ARMA is the spiritual successor to Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis and features an overhauled game engine, with improved graphics, physics, multiplayer functionality, scripting capabilities, and new units and vehicles. An expansion pack titled ARMA: Queen's Gambit was released in 2007. Because of legal issues between BI and Codemasters, Codemasters owns the intellectual property to the name Operation Flashpoint. Since BI severed its connection with Codemasters and no longer has the legal right to use the Operation Flashpoint name, Armed Assault is considered to be the direct descendant of Operation Flashpoint. ARMA 2 was released in June 2009. Codemasters has released a rival title to BI using the name Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising, in which BI has no participation.
