You need Arma 2 Combined Operations (which includes Operation Arrowhead).

Thanks. So that is $30. It would be nice to get it for 50% off on the sale.

Considering Bohemia have just run a 25% off sale across a variety of digital stores including their own, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't see it any more than 25-33% off. Given the boost that Day-Z has given them I suspect they're probably a bit reticent to heavily discount it.

EDIT: Looks like it's still on sale over on their own store @ $24.74

That said a 50% off discount would likely get a number of people, you and I included by the sounds, to bite just to give Day-Z a try, without really having an interest in the underlying ARMA II game.

Also: A sneak peek of the Summer Sale bundles from the Steam registry:
The onward march of the bundles of March - Page 23

Day 1: The Baconing (BM2), EDGE (HIB), Anomaly Warzone Earth (HIBfA1), Cave Story+ (HIBIV), Lone Survivor (HIBV).
Day 2: Universe Sandbox, E.Y.E, Oil Rush, Botanicula (HIBBot), Splice
Day 3: Braid (HIBs), Bit Trip Beat, Runespell Overture (IR3), Bunch of Heroes (IGII), Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet

Day 5: Audio Surf, Greed Corp (IGII), Gemini Rue (IR1), Tiny Bang Story, Ys: The Oath in Felghana
Day 6: Defcon (HIBIntrov), Awesome, Space Chem (HIBFS), Trauma (HIBFS, IGVI), Ticket to Ride

Day 8 Bundle: Wings of Prey, Hoard (IRVal), Swords and Soldiers HD (HIBfA2), Demolition Inc, Sol Exodus
Day 9: Zeno Clash (IRVal), VVVVVV (HIBIII), Revenge of the Titans (HIBII), Jamestown (HIBIV), Capsized

Day 11: World of Goo (HIBs), Star Ruler, Hydrophobia, Orion: Dino Beatdown, Waveform

The games marked in bold have not been in an indie bundle to the best of my memory. For the others, I've listed the bundle(s) they were in.

PS: I may have forgot to say that HIB now has an account feature much like that of IndieRoyale.

There's a ticket to ride steam game?

Interesting.

Mostly I'm waiting for discounted Walking Dead from Telltale. Day Z sounds interesting, but I've a feeling it simple sounds more fun than it really is - hated the demo of ARMA II - hinkey controls for an FPS.

I'm with you there Drac, it does look quite interesting. I was hoping to see a giveaway of episode one when they released episode two in an attempt to get a few more people on board (like they did with BttF). Would make it easier to hold out until it's on sale.

Rumours of the 12th might be right it seems, over the last 30 mins many items on the store have just been updated with discounts ending on the 24th.

Prepare your wallets.

EDIT: oooh, new badge system and we get to vote on sale items we want, different ones ever 8 hours. As well as deals lasting all day there's some that change every few hours. I think this one is really going to hurt my bank balance.

Also 20% off ARMA 2 and 25% off The Walking Dead, but I'll hold out and see if they have better daily deals.
