Bohemia Interactive has announced and released Arma Reforger for the Xbox Series X|S and PC via Steam for $29.99 in Early Access. The game is an open-world multiplayer first-person shooter set in the Malden Islands in 1989. 

Arma Reforger is a step towards Arma 4, which is in development.

Here is an overview of the game:

t's time to return to the mid-Atlantic island of Everon — a 52km² microstate, which many of you will remember from Arma: Cold War Assault. This iconic terrain has been reimagined and faithfully restored, undoubtedly becoming our most photorealistic and beautiful environment to date. Thanks to new possibilities, made available through our next-gen Enfusion engine, we have recreated the jewel of the Malden Islands for a 1989 setting. So gear-up, set out, and explore! Take in the many sights and vistas. The glittering ocean bays, lakes, and rivers. The forests, hills and pastures, animated by the shadows of rolling clouds. There is so much to discover!

But what's an Arma game without conflict? Arma Reforger's Conflict game mode returns players to war. Join US or Soviet forces in a dynamic, multiplayer, team versus team scenario. Build support structures and defenses, oversee logistics, and capture key objectives by working together. To survive and overcome the enemy, you'll also have to rely on your wits and fieldcraft. Make no mistake, your map and compass will be every bit as important as the rifle in your hands.

In addition to this, Arma Reforger's playable content is supported with a real-time mission editor; Game Master. In this titular role, players can curate events, set tasks, and dynamically respond to other players on the battlefield, setting down challenges, compositions, and more. No combat encounter will be the same and if you're one of those in the midst of the action, you'll have to think fast to stay alive.

Last but not least, for our talented modding community, there's a lot of new tools available. In fact, we're sharing the very same technology used to make Arma Reforger — giving you an enormous amount of creative freedom. All these programs are collected on one site known as Workbench. Although only accessible to PC users, addons can be published on Arma Reforger's exclusive mod repository, the Workshop, for everyone, including console players, to enjoy!

The Arma franchise finally releasing on console AND with mod support?!? This is actually a bigger deal than what most probably realize, despite this title kinda being a remaster of the first game from what it sounds like lol

Out of all of the PC exclusive franchises, Arma was one I never thought would get a console version just because of how tied to the modding community the games are. But I do like the workaround the devs managed to make so console players will get to enjoy the mods as well! Enjoy Xbox players. Just know it is a very difficult franchise to play xD about as hardcore of a military sim as you can get.
