Arma 3’s new single-player mission pack, Tac-Ops, popped into existence last week, introducing three presumably very serious missions to the straight-faced military sandbox. They’re tricky, says developer Bohemia Interactive, and you’ll need brush up on your shooting, tactical positioning and adaptability.

Steam Charts: Don’t Call It 10 Comebacks

No new indie millionaries this week: we're still looking at the consequences of the Steam Summer Sale, so the weekly list of best-sellers is entirely devoid of new releases. Hordes of people who'd sat on the fence about 2015's big games jumped on the discounts, and that means many familiar names.

Steam Charts: Final Wild Doom Hammer

Phew: we have nine different names in the top ten sellers on Steam last week, rather than the recent trend for various pre-orders and season passes splitting the vote excessively. Question is, has Joe/Jo Public responded as rapturously to DOOM as Ian/Iana Critic has?

Arma 3 Roadmap Outlines Coming Updates & Expansion

Bohemia don't always seem the most organised with how they update their games, whether it's DayZ or Take On Mars, but they have been much better over the past few years with Arma 3 [official site].
