Arma 3 Alpha Grows Up, Will Be Beta Soon

By Craig Pearson on June 24th, 2013.

I didn't do it
All good things must come to an end, and the Arma 3 Alpha is pretty good (Steam says I’ve played it for a healthy 36 hours). If you’re still considering buying it, you only have one more day left to buy it at the alpha price of €24.99, £19.99, $32.99. Tomorrow the Alpha fades out, like a flare sputtering its last embers of warning light, and the beta replaces it. It has more official content: 10 vehicles, 7 weapons, more showcase missions (Combined Arms, Supports, Commanding & Night), 2 multiplayer scenarios and 4 challenges, and with it comes a base price of €34.99, £29.99, and $44.99. Think of it as a military upgrade, or a nice new pair of trousers.

Benefits From Friends: How To Get Arma 3 Lite

By Craig Pearson on March 15th, 2013.

What happens when I get hold of the Arma 3 editor

Bohemia Interactive
is doing smart things at the moment. The first smart thing they did was to give me access to Arma 3 before everyone else had it, which made me happy. That is a smart thing, because I am very important person, and my mum says I am handsome. The second smart thing they did was to release the Arma 3 Alpha to people who are not me, because it makes multiplayer games a lot more fun, and it means they can get to work with optimising their Greek pixels. The third smart thing was just launched: everyone who owns a copy of the Arma 3 Alpha has copies of the Lite edition to give away. Check your Steam Gifts, everyone. A heavily armed Santa Claus has been!

Alpha Male: Arma 3 Alpha (And Series) Trailered By Dslyecxi

By Jim Rossignol on March 8th, 2013.


Over the past few years I’ve noticed a theme of players seeming to “get” certain games as well as – and often even better than – the developers of said games do. The Arma games are one such series, where the input from ultra-dedicated players is one of the most powerful assets to the series. Who better to captain the Arma 3 trailers, then, but one of Arma’s own superfans, Andrew ‘Dslyecxi’ Gluck, who helps run the ShackTactical community.

This new trailer series (first one below) is ostensible about the Arma 3 Alpha, but this first trailer ends up being about the series generally. If you’ve not ever dabbled and want to understand the appeal, this is where to look.
