Arma 3 and all its various mods provide a lot of value and nearly endless scenarios, but the whole thing can be a little daunting to new players. In an attempt to streamline gameplay -- and probably drive more purchases of the base game -- Bohemia Interactive has just announced Argo, a free-to-play standalone conversion of Arma 3 that offers three PvP and one PvE scenario for tactical multiplayer action.

The three PvP scenarios are:

Link. Each team has to activate a number of search array devices and hold their control points three times. Unlike in the other two scenarios, each team has a limited number of respawns.

Raid. This scenario pits teams of five against each other in a small play space. Players are tasked with hacking an item in the field or protecting it from being hacked three times by the attackers over seven minutes.

Clash. With the largest game space of the three, Clash is a push-and-pull fight for control points, with the ultimate goal of seizing the enemy base.

Each game mode mixes things up a bit with air drops, which provide advantages to the team that captures it. Argo also includes a co-op mode, Combat Patrol, that pits 10-player teams against AI enemies over a huge, 62 square kilometer map.

Argo will be fully free-to-play, with no microtransactions or other payment required. However, players are free to pick up the Argo Supporter's Pack, which comes with animations, unique apparel items, the ability to use vehicles in the 3-D Scenario Editor, and access to premium servers.

Counter-Strike: Arma -- er, I mean, Argo -- will be released to the public on June 22 on Steam. Read more about Argo on the Bohemia Interactive website.
