Update 3, April 29th: By popular demand, a second teaser. Full reveal will be on the 30th, still. Enjoy!

Speaking of special…

The most recent issue of PC Gamer UK sports a feature in which they cover the “200 best things about PC gaming”, in no particular order. In it, at slot #95, there’s a bit on ‘Massively Co-Op Games’, depicted below (click for a readable version). At the end of it is a link, which goes to – yep, you guessed it – a ShackTac ArmA video. Now, mind you, this is not a random chance happening – we’ve hosted a PC Gamer editor in our sessions before, and to paraphrase him, he didn’t see the true full potential of ArmA until he had played with Shack Tactical in our sessions. High praise indeed, and to have it make it’s way into the top 200 things of all of PC Gaming?

We’re flattered, to put it lightly! 😉

(p.s. PCG editors: We have a lot of much higher quality videos up on Youtube – use those next time, GVid makes people’s eyes bleed!)

Operation Mongoose for ACE has been released

Thematically similar to “Paradrop!”, Operation Mongoose is a fantastic mission created for ACE by Homer Johnston and Macolik, tested and played extensively at ShackTac. You can download it and check it out in this forum post on the BIS forums. Many cool gameplay elements exist in it, and the overall experience is a ton of fun. Definitely recommended to those who want an intense teamwork-heavy ACE experience.

Advanced Combat Environment (ACE) mod now available!

The phenomenal Advanced Combat Environment mod is now available for ArmA1! You can find more information in this forum post on the BIS forums. Enjoy!

The Airborne Invasion of North Sahrani – an ArmA AAR

I’ve written a new after-action report based on ShackTac’s experiences in a fantastic new ArmA mission. This is the first one I’ve published on the site since Dec of 2006 – I hope you all enjoy it.

The article can be found here.
