Arma 3 And COD: Blops 3 Free On Steam This Weekend

Maybe you think you'll like shooting things, but you're not sure what flavour of shooting. Are you the type who likes tense, simulated military manshoots you can play with dozens of friends in wide open areas, with missions you make yourself and vehicles you can pilot and drive? Good news! Arma 3 is free on Steam this weekend. Or are you the type who likes…

Arma 3’s Shiny New 3D Editor Coming This Month

"You can imagine the editor as a military-themed Mario Maker on PC," says one Bohemian in a video showing off the new editor coming to Arma 3 [official site] later this month. It certainly looks a lot friendlier than Arma editors of yore. Sure, folks have already managed to turn Arma into everything from a zombie apocalypses to a job simulator, but more approachable tools…

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]. I like especially their regular posts about their internal development roadmap, and there's now a post and new footage outlining updates and expansions to come in 2016.

Arma 3 Expansion’s Tropical Islands Of Tanoa Revealed

A leak last week made pretty clear that a new tropical landscape was coming to Arma III [official site], and now it's really, formally, officially happening. The South Pacific archipelago of Tanoa (pronounce that last part like in 'quinoa' or everyone will think you're a right mug) will arrive in Bohemia's military sim with an expansion in the first half of 2016. I don't believe…

Arma 3 Free Steam Weekend During Bohemia Sale

Me, I like my video game wars unrealistic enough that I can cross an entire battlefield in five carefully-placed strafejumps but you, you may fancy them more simmy. If you like your shooty-shoots militaristic and damned demanding, yet you haven't hopped into the Arma 3 [official site] APC yet, hey: give it a go, as the whole game's free to try in a free trial…

Bang: Arma 3 Fires Big Update Alongside Marksmen DLC

Arma 3 [official site] has a nice approach to paid DLC. When makers Bohemia Interactive sell new odds and ends for cash money, they've also released free updates adding related extras for all. This week they released the shooty Marksmen DLC, which adds more guns, scopes, ghillie suits, firing drills, and other things that go 'bang!' They also rolled out a hearty patch which improves…

Arma Maria: Play Hitman-Inspired Levels In Arma III

Although winners have yet to be announced in the recent Make Arma Not War competition, the judges have published the shortlisted finalists. As a result a series of levels inspired by Hitman: Blood Money - far and away the best game in the Hitman series - have been brought to our attention. You can download 'em over here. There are eight Arma III [official site] levels in all,…

Arma 3 Dev Branch Takes On Helicopters

Part of Arma 3's recent roadmap includes more regular updates to the game's dev branch, introducing all manner of tweaks and new tools to the terrifying military simulator. As of this past week, that includes new helicopter physics. Using knowledge gained via Bohemia's own Take On Helicopters (my title for this post is really very clever), a new set of flight physics have been introduced…

Listen Up, Maggots: Arma 3 Launches Bootcamps

Arma 3's battlefield simulation may not be so complex that one needs the full 26 weeks of basic training the real army provides, but it could definitely do with offering a little more guidance. Which it now does, thanks to today's 'Bootcamp' update adding all sorts of training, with a single-player mini-campaign, multiplayer bootcamp where players can play at drill sergeant and holler while forcing…

Arma 3 Bootcamp Update: VR Training, Expanded Workshop

My first online experience with Arma 3 involved failing to grasp our mission, stumbling around in the dark, and falling accidentally out of a helicopter to be left stranded in a forest. Arma 3 Bootcamp is exactly what I needed. That's the name of the next update to the military sim, and it's going to introduce a new tutorial campaign, an 'instructor' scenario for multiplayer,…

Joke For Sale: Arma 3 Karts Is Real DLC And Out Now

April 1st can be confusing enough already, and it's only going to get harder if things that were jokes once upon a time continue to make the leap to really-real existing games. Last April Fool's day, Arma 3 creators Bohemia Interactive released a go kart parody of a Volvo Truck advert. Now they've released Arma 3 Karts as a piece of DLC, out today for…

Moving Out: Arma 3 Dev Roadmap Includes Expansion Plans

While the internet is all a-bustlin' with news of the latest Call of Duty, another maker of military manshoots announced their future plans. Except we like these military manshoots. Arma 3's three-part campaign is out and finished, but a development roadmap posted on the official Arma site makes clear that they're not done yet. Things to come: Steam Workshop support, new DLC and a full…

Zero To Hero: Free Arma 3 Zeus DLC Is Out

On Tuesday I began my second pen-and-paper roleplaying experience, joining three friends for our first trip into Numenera. I'm amazed at how much time and energy the DMs I play with - my other game is D&D - are pouring into the worlds and stories they're creating. I have that impetus, but not the follow-through. Arma 3's new Zeus DLC is tempting, though. It allows…

Cops And Robbers: Arma 3 – Altis Life Mod

The Arma series has a history of 'real life' mods, the designation of which suggests that ARMA isn't already a relatively accurate recreation of real life activities. Soldiers are not a fictional character class. The Life mods aim to drop players into a world where earning a wage and shopping for groceries is as important as firing a gun. Rather than being a first-person multiplayer…

Here’s That Arma 3 Dinosaur Mod You’ve Been Asking For

Universe: "I have become known for doing at least one thing no one will ever see coming per day. For example, at the dawn of time, it was existing. Last week, it was Miley Cyrus doing a halfway decent cover of Outkast's "Hey Ya." I must keep all beings sentient and otherwise on their toes (and otherwise)." Pinky: "Gee Universe, what are we going to…

King Of The Mods: Arma 3 Zeus DLC Let’s You Play As A DM

"Assume the role of the game master," starts the website about Arma 3's coming Zeus DLC. For a brief moment I pictured my face floating above the Arma 3's Greek islands, digitally smeared like the late Sir Patrick Moore's. Alas, this is even better. A new mode for Arma 3's multiplayer where one player can act as a kind of dungeon master, using a real-time…

Adapt Or Die (And Reload): Arma 3’s 2nd Campaign Out Now

Arma 3's campaign singleplayer is being released in three chunks. The first, released late last year, was called Survive. The second is out today and is called "Adapt". There's a trailer below, which shows a player adapt from a lying-down to a standing-up position, and then there's an explosion and lots of little parachuting men. Woo.
