Korneel van 't Land informed us Bohemia Interactive released the first official DLC for Arma 3, "Arma 3 Zeus".

    Quote :
    Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday April 10th 2014

    Bohemia Interactive today released the free Arma 3 Zeus DLC for Arma 3™.
    Announced two months ago, Arma 3 Zeus lets people assume the role of Game Master and curate the multiplayer experience of other players.

    As a Game Master, you can view the battlefield from bird’s-eye perspective, and create, manipulate or expand a multiplayer scenario in real-time. An easy-to-use editor enables you to spawn units, set objectives, change the weather conditions, start music, and much more. The result is incredibly dynamic online combat - in which players have to rely on their ability to improvise and adapt.


    • Become Zeus
        Assume the role of Game Master and curate the experience of other Arma 3 players. Wielding an intuitive real-time editor, you can manipulate or expand multiplayer scenarios on-the-fly, and create a surprising flow of challenges for the soldiers on the ground.
    • Enroll As Players
        Form a squad, head into battle, and engage in truly dynamic combat. As one of Zeus' subjects, you need to react to varied objectives, and adapt to unscripted events on a constantly-evolving battlefield. Improvisation is your key to success.
    • MP Modes
        Play Arma 3 Zeus across its distinctive 'Game Master' game type scenarios, where you start out with a blank canvas. Or visit familiar modes like 'Coop', 'Team Death Match', and 'Sector Control' in a completely new way. Zeus multiplayer also works with custom player-created scenarios

    The Arma 3 Zeus DLC has been added automatically to the Steam Library of all owners of Arma 3.

    To celebrate its release, the Arma 3 development team will be hosting an official Arma 3 Zeus Launch Party Livestream this Saturday, April 12th. Starting at 17:00 UTC, they will present an hour-long Zeus MP session in which the developers take on the role of Game Master, while various members from the Arma community will fight as soldiers on the ground. The session will be streamed live from Bohemia Interactive’s HQ in Prague onto Arma 3’s Twitch.tv channel.

    Quote :
    Prague, Czech Republic, Tuesday April 1st 2014

    Bohemia Interactive, the award-winning creators of the critically acclaimed Arma series and the standalone version of DayZ, are proud to announce Arma 3™ Karts – the first official premium DLC for Arma 3™.

    Bring the battle to the race track in the adrenaline-fueled Karts DLC pack for Arma 3™.

          “Since we’re already in the zombie business with DayZ, we felt the next logical expansion would be to take on karting”, said Jay Crowe, Creative Director on Arma 3. “Our sandbox could not be called complete without karts, and thus we set ourselves the goal to recreate this pure form of racing. Welcome to Arma 3's World of Karts: drive / overtake / win.”

    Bohemia Interactive has scheduled the Arma 3™ Karts DLC for the second quarter of 2014. The exact release date and price will be announced at a later date.

Korneel van 't Land informed us earlier Bohemia Interactive has joined forces with Andrew Gluck (better known as Dslyecxi) to create a series of Arma 3 tutorial videos.
Today Korneel van 't Land sent us the tenth video in the series, this time showing the concept of guerrilla warfare.

    Quote :
    Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday 27th March 2014

    Bohemia Interactive today released a brand new episode in their official Community Guide video series for Arma 3. In the latest episode, Andrew Gluck (better known as Dslyecxi) from ShackTactical explores the concept of guerrilla warfare - something which factors heavily into the Arma 3 singleplayer campaign.

    Guerrilla warfare relates to an asymmetrical form of combat, where a smaller, less equipped force fights against a larger and more conventional military force. Approaching the concept from the perspective of guerrilla fighters, the new video explains how to deal with the equipment disparity, how to conduct successful hit-and-run attacks, how to safely withdraw from the area of operations, and more.

    Bohemia Interactive’s Community Guide video series aims to explain some of the basics of Arma 3. Previous episodes focused on topics such as infantry combat, multiplayer teamwork, helicopters, sniper- and launcher teams, combined arms warfare, and air assault.

Korneel van 't Land informed us Bohemia Interactive have released the third Arma 3 campaign episode "Win".

    Quote :
    Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday 20th March 2014

    Supported by a brand new trailer, Bohemia Interactive today released the third and final episode for the Arma 3’s campaign. The episode, titled ‘Win’, brings a conclusion to the story of infantry man Ben Kerry – a soldier who finds himself caught in the middle of a Mediterranean flashpoint.

    Arma 3's 'The East Wind' campaign consists of three episodes. The first episode - Survive - introduces players to soldier Ben Kerry, who has been stationed in the Republic of Altis & Stratis as part of a NATO peacekeeping operation. After a staged drawdown from the region fails, players have to fight for survival against a better equipped and more powerful enemy. The second episode - Adapt - picks up where the first episode ended, and follows Kerry as he links up with a group of guerrilla fighters, aiming to cripple AAF and CSAT forces. The campaign's final act - Win - continues as the situation escalates even further, and players must deploy all the skills and experience they've gathered to bring the flashpoint to a resolution.

    Together with the latest campaign episode, Bohemia Interactive also deployed an expansion of Arma 3's sandbox content. Two new aircraft, the A-164 Wipeout and To-199 Neophron, deliver a whole range of tactical options to the NATO and CSAT factions. Moreover, the A-164 CAS jet, which is a successor to the legendary A-10, is also introduced via the brand new ‘Fixed-Wings’ showcase scenario. Another addition is the Tempest transport truck, which comes in multiple variants: cargo, refuel, medical, repair, and ammo re-supply. Last but not least, new points of interest have been added to the massive 270 km² Altis terrain, with the most notable locations being the athletics stadium and ghost hotel compound.

    After downloading today's automatic update on Steam, people will be able to play the full Arma 3 singleplayer campaign. The exact changelog for the 'Win' update can be found here. Those who have not yet enlisted, can purchase the regular edition of Arma 3 (44.99 EUR/39.99 GBP/59.99 USD) or the Arma 3 Digital Deluxe Edition (49.99 EUR/42.99 GBP/64.99 USD) from Steam and Store.bistudio.com. A boxed version of the game is also available at many of the major retailers.

Korneel van 't Land informed us Bohemia Interactive have announced the first Arma 3 DLC "Arma 3 Zeus".

    Quote :
    Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday 13th February 2014

    Bohemia Interactive, creators of the award-winning Arma™ series and DayZ™, today announce their first planned DLC for Arma 3: Arma 3 Zeus. Made available in the second quarter of this year, the free Zeus DLC delivers a new form of multiplayer, in which players can take on the role of Game Master and curate the online battles of other players. The concept is further introduced in the DLC’s reveal trailer.


    Improvisation is the ultimate key to success in Arma 3 Zeus. Inspired by popular tabletop games such as 'Dungeons & Dragons', a limited number of players can assume the role of Game Master, and influence the multiplayer experience of those with boots on the ground. Watching the battlefield from a bird's-eye view, wielding an intuitive real-time editor, Zeus can create, manipulate or expand mission content to generate new stories and a flow of challenges. The result is incredibly dynamic, unscripted combat gameplay - and multiplayer sessions which are filled with unexpected, challenging, and creative events.

    The Zeus multiplayer concept works across all familiar multiplayer game types, such as Team Deathmatch and Sector Control, where players can either work with or go up against Zeus. The most distinctive game type in Arma 3 Zeus, however, is ‘Zeus Game Master’. Here, Game Masters are entirely free to create objectives, spawn units, and steer players across Arma 3’s massive Altis and Stratis terrains.

    On top of the diverse range of official Zeus scenarios that will be available, Arma 3 Zeus can also be implemented into player-created multiplayer scenarios.


    Zeus’ Design Lead Karel Moricky:
      "The best thing about Arma 3 Zeus is how naturally it fits within the game. Dynamic combat, massive islands, and editing features - it was all there. But now we've added an interface which gives players full control over the multiplayer experience. The Zeus system is pretty modular too, so community creators can easily use it in their missions. Or take it apart and turn into something completely different. There are no rules, only those you make yourself.”

    While the reveal trailer already gives a taste of what to expect, the Arma 3 development team will also be hosting an official ‘Arma 3 Zeus Gameplay Reveal’ livestream this Saturday, February 15th, at 17:00 UTC. During the livestream, Zeus’ Design Lead Karel Moricky and Arma 3’s Creative Director Jay Crowe, alongside other core members of the Arma development team, will be giving a one-hour demonstration of how it is to play as Zeus and what it’s like to be one of Zeus’ subjects. The session will be streamed live from Bohemia Interactive’s HQ in Prague onto Arma 3’s Twitch.tv channel.

    Bohemia Interactive today released the second episode of the official campaign for Arma 3. In the new episode, titled ‘Adapt’, players take on the role of Ben Kerry, a soldier trapped on the island of Altis following a Mediterranean flashpoint. The new campaign episode's release is accompanied by a brand new trailer.


    While the first part of the campaign introduced players to Arma 3's basic infantry combat and story, episode two opens up the military sandbox further, challenging players to adopt guerrilla tactics in the face of against a stronger, better-equipped enemy. The Adapt episode is made available to people via an automatic update on Steam.

    "Episode One helped players get to grips with the basic skills needed to survive”, said Jay Crowe, Creative Director on Arma 3. “Episode Two introduces a whole new set of challenges, giving players more freedom and responsibility in the wide, open terrain of Altis."


    The official campaign for Arma 3, named ‘The East Wind’, consists of three episodes: 'Survive', 'Adapt', 'Win'. The first campaign episode, 'Survive', was deployed in October 2013, followed by the second 'Adapt' episode today. The third and final campaign episode, ‘Win’, is scheduled for March 2014.

    Prague, Czech Republic, Wednesday 11th December 2013

    Bohemia Interactive released the (free) AAF Reinforcements Pack for Arma 3. Supplied via an automatic update on Steam, the package includes a variety of new sandbox content, among which three new vehicles: the FV-720 Mora IFV, the MBT-52 Kuma tank, and the Wy-55 Hellcat helicopter.

    The FV-720 Mora is an infantry fighting vehicle used by the AAF. They were bought by the AAF from the British Armed Forces and reconditioned to serve two more decades. The Mora is armed with a 30mm cannon and a coaxial machinegun, providing not only a carrying capacity, but also reliable fire support.

    The MBT-52 Kuma is the main battle tank used by Altian Armed Forces. A batch of a few dozen tanks and spare turrets were bought under-price from a south-European country facing an economic collapse. Like similar MBTs of the era, the Kuma is armed with a 120mm cannon, a 7.62mm coaxial machinegun and a remotely controlled 12.7mm HMG. The level of protection for the crew is also remarkable, thanks to additional armor layers.


    The Wy-55 Hellcat is a multi-purpose military helicopter, most suited for anti-surface, battlefield utility with limited transport capability. It replaces its predecessor the Super Lynx, improving the maneuverability, durability and protection. The armed version is fitted with twin miniguns and unguided rockets.

    Aside the new vehicles, the AAF Reinforcements Pack also includes other sandbox content, such as the LRPS sniper scope, infra-red grenades, and black versions of the MX rifle family. The complete changelog can be found on Arma 3’s official website.

Korneel van 't Land informed us Bohemia Interactive have announced the second Arma 3 campaign episode will be released January 21st 2014.

    Quote :
    Prague, Czech Republic, Wednesday 4th December 2013

    Bohemia Interactive today announced the release date of the second campaign episode for Arma 3. Picking up from where the first episode left off, the campaign is set to continue with the release of the ‘Adapt’ episode on Tuesday January 21st, 2014.

    The official campaign for Arma 3, named ‘The East Wind’, unfolds over three episodes: 'Survive', 'Adapt', 'Win'. In the first episode, players were introduced to Ben Kerry, a regular soldier who’s part of a NATO-peacekeeping mission in the Mediterranean. After a botched withdrawal trapped Kerry’s unit on the island of Stratis, in the midst of a flashpoint, they attempt an escape to the neighboring island of Altis.

      "While the first part of the campaign focused on the basics of infantry combat, this second ‘Adapt’ episode plays with the other cool features of Arma 3’s sandbox”, said Jaroslav Kasny, Playable Content Lead for Arma 3. "Players will find more open and unorthodox scenarios, and with the help of guerrilla warfare, set out to defeat a much stronger enemy."

    Before the upcoming holidays, ahead of the second episode’s launch, Bohemia Interactive will already be releasing the episode’s new sandbox content. Included in this (free) package are 3 additional vehicles for the Altis Armed Forces faction. The Wy-55 Hellcat helicopter has previously seen action with the British Armed Forces, and now provides a maneuverable and armed aerial reconnaissance platform for the AAF. The FV-720 Mora is a tracked Infantry Fighting Vehicle best employed in combined arms warfare. Last but not certainly least, we find the fully new MBT-52 tank, brought in to the round out the faction's war fighting options. The vehicles, plus other new content such as black versions of the MX rifle family, infra-red grenades and the LRPS sniper scope, will be made available on Wednesday December 11th via an automatic update on Steam.
