Bohemia Interactive’s Argo FPS Game Launched for Free—Has Zero Microtransactions

Arma 3 developer Bohemia Interactive finally launched their free-to-play shooter game Argo (formerly Project Argo). The game is originally a conversion of Arma 3, but is now a stand alone 5v5 multiplayer tactical game. Players can choose between playing one of two rival mercenary factions and be deployed in a massive 62km^2 island. Players are free to roam and explore the unrestricted terrain, as long as they stay alive long enough to enjoy the sights.
Argo Game Modes

There are three competitive game modes available: Clash, Link and Raid. In Clash, two units battle over territory in a series of combat engagements. In Link, the objective is to capture a chain of points before the enemy takes control. Raid tasks one unit to find a data terminal while the other unit needs to defend the three possible locations.
Image

Is it Really Free?

Yes. The game is completely available for free via Steam. Simply download and play right away. Bohemia Interactive promises that there will be ZERO microtransactions. However, there is a completely optional “Supporter’s Pack” available for those who simply want to say thanks and support the project. For £7 ($10 USD), users get the following bonus content:

A set of 13 exclusive animations for the MVP screen.
Bundle of 23 unique apparel items, including facewear, headwear, and backpacks (these items are purely cosmetic and do not offer any gameplay benefits).
Highlighted name in the leaderboards.
Access to premium servers that will be exclusively available for Argo Supporters.
Controllable vehicles in Argo’s Scenario Editor.

SEE ALSO: Indie Developers Call out Over Steams Refund Policy
System Requirements

The minimum requirements only call for Intel Dual-Core 2.4 GHz or AMD Dual-Core Athlon 2.5 GHz CPU. The graphics card requirement is also just as lenient that it could run an an Intel HD graphics 4000 GPU. Players who want to max out the settings would need an i5-4460 paired with a GTX 660 GPU.

So no micro-transactions means that instead theres one standard size transaction for those wanting extra bits, somehow it dont look appealing even if I wanted that type of game

Half-Life has received a patch 19 years after launch

Half-Life has been patched almost 19 years after the game's launch

The Steam release of Half-Life has been patched, fixing several crash issues that were present within the game. Valve was informed of these issues by several members of the Half-Life community, with Valve acting to fix these issues despite the age of the game.

Half-Life was released back in November 1998, making it almost 19 years since Half-Life was originally released on PC. This shows that Valve has not given up on their most popular game series, which is encouraging to see in an age where some modern games are never patched, leaving issues to be fixed by community modding or remain within in the game forever.

Valve also went to the extra effort to credit those that found and reported these issues, giving these Half-Life fans a new claim to fame.

Changes in that are included in this update are:
- Fixed crash when entering certain malformed strings into the game console. Thanks to Marshal Webb from BackConnect, Inc for reporting this.
- Fixed crash when loading a specially crafted malformed BSP file. Thanks to Grant Hernandez (@Digital_Cold) for reporting this.
- Fixed malformed SAV files allowing arbitrary files to be written into the game folder. Thanks to Vsevolod Saj for reporting this.
- Fixed a crash when quickly changing weapons that are consumable. Thanks to Sam Vanheer for reporting this.
- Fixed crash when setting custom decals

So no ep 3 or HL3 but a new patch, cant help but think this aint the HL news everyone wants to hear

The new Fire Pro is out on Steam, part of their Early Access feature. Apparently the wrestlers you can D/L from Steam Workshop are only 7 Kb each so potentially you could have thousands of wrestlers playable in the game. They've brought back match history/ratings too from the GBA games.

This is all true, I bought the game the day it came out. There were heaps of wrestlers on the workshop even the day it came out.

How is it running as I've read mixed things. On higher end PCs it's really good but on older ones laggy. Mainly the menu/CAW screens and in match the lag is minimal.

I built my PC this year, so I can't comment on older PCs, but it seems fine to me.
