Arma 3 Karts

by
Bohemia Interactive


Description:
Start your engines - this is Arma 3 Karts! When we unveiled our 2014 April Fools joke via the Splendid Split parody video, some of you were quite keen for us to release the go-karts package for real. And here it is, for everyone to try. Enjoy this little sidestep in our typically military sandbox!

This adds a 20hp 4-stroke engine go-kart with four unique liveries and one random color variant.


Features:
  • Kart - A 20hp 4-stroke engine go-kart with four unique liveries and one random color variant
  • Racer - Matching race drivers wearing dedicated race helmets
  • Marshal - A racetrack safety coordinator
  • Starter Pistol - This special revolver is used to signal the start of races and fires signaling flares
  • Race Objects - Various (plastic) barriers used to build racetracks
  • Time Trials - A new form of singleplayer Challenges delivered in 5 Karts Check Point races against the clock
  • Zeus Race & Modules - Special modules to build Check Point races, and pre-set races to jump straight into the multiplayer action

Charity:
A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the Arma 3 Karts DLC will be donated to the Czech Red Cross. The total amount raised will be announced on http://www.bistudio.com in June 2014.


Test Drive:
Before rolling out the first proper military DLC, the Arma 3 Karts DLC helps to test a new approach to premium content - one which aims to prevent a split in the Arma 3 multiplayer community. Find out more.


Installation:
At this point, the DLC can be purchased via the BI Store, through Steam, or directly from in game. Depending upon if you've purchased it or not, you'll encounter differences right from the main menu. To explain further, let's take a look at two cases:


The Owners:
  • You launch the game and see an icon at the bottom the main menu, indicating that the Helicopters DLC is installed and owned.
  • Clicking on the icon will open the Field Manual to the Helicopters DLC records.
  • The helicopter is available as you would expect in the editor, along with the official scenarios, and multiplayer - have fun!
The Non-Owners:
  • You launch the game and see an icon in the top left of the main menu, indicating that the Helicopters DLC is available.
  • You could purchase the DLC right there and then, but choose to continue to play on as normal.
  • The helicopter is available to try out in the editor, but the SP scenario is locked.
      - You can use the helicopter with some restrictions (e.g. you can only board the helicopter as a passenger).
      - The longer you actively use it, the more prominent the premium content notifications become.
  • Afterwards, you join a multiplayer server that uses the MP scenario (or any custom mission including the helicopter):
      - You can join as normal.
      Again, you experience the progressive DLC notifications and restrictions.
  • Since you've really enjoyed the helicopter so far(!), you decide to buy it in-game directly.
      - The limitations and notifications are immediately removed.
      - We display a confirmation note - thank you!
