As Bohemia Interactive
puts the finishing touches on their military shooter sequel ArmA II
, you may be wondering to yourself, "Self, what in the wide, wide world of sports does 'ArmA' mean?" Well we happen to have that info for you via a statement from Bohemia's Marek Spanel "The word 'Arma' is Latin in origin; a multifaceted word that depending on context can be used to mean defensive arms, shields, soldiers or weapons of war amongst others."
And why use such a name for this game? Spanel says they wanted a title " . . that is easily remembered and pronounced across different languages and to signify that just like the name itself, ArmA II'
s gameplay is boldly different and not afraid to deviate from tried and tested shooter formulae." Hope that clears everything up because there will be a test on this (Ok, not really).
