Steps To Reproduce

Play for 10 minutes

Additional Information

I have huge ram, a dedicated SSD for Cache and a power supply backing me up.

I wonder... if this was like the original ARMA experience. Feels similar.

ARMA 2 did not do this.

I have a similar problem. After a period of gameplay (10 minutes up to 30) my game freezes. If I alt tab out, ctrl alt delete to get task manager up and just tab through my open windows over and over eventually it gets out of its funk and lets me resume normal play without the application closing.
