By Henry Winchester at 11:05am December 23 2011

Realistic military sim ARMA 2 has been updated to version 1.60 (http://store.steampowered.com/news/7080/) by developers Bohemia. The patch covers Operation Arrowhead, the British Armed Forces and Private Military Contractors DLC, the original Arma 2 and Arma 2: Free. Among the whopping 158 changes are a new anti-aliasing mode, new scripting commands, smoother multiplayer, netcode fixes and improved AI. More important fixes include, “AI no longer considering a car horn as a threat,” and “Dead body temperature was not saved.”

The Bohemians have also created a Christmas message (http://www.bistudio.com/happy-holidays/) for all their fans, which is so incredibly festive we’re about to explode in a shower of tinsel and fake snow.
