Arma 3's Apex Expansion Visiting New Land On July 11th

Summer hols time!

Arma 3 will jet off on its summer hols to the sunny South Pacific on July 11th, developers Bohemia announced during E3 this week. The military sim's Apex expansion [official site] introduces the archipelago of Tanoa with 100 km² of sun, sea, shanty towns, sugar cane fields, and submachine guns. Along with a new area, it adds new vehicles, men, weapons and whatnot. Observe the customary E3 moving pictures:

Apex will cost £24.99/29,99€/$34.99 when it launches July 11th on Steam and the Bohemia store.

Not that we condone pre-ordering but to head off people who'll grumble if I don't mention it: pre-ordering Apex (with a 20% discount) gives access to beta build with most of its new stuff. As Bohemia explain:

"If you own Arma 3 Apex, you can already test all Apex content (new terrain, armed forces, weapons, vehicles, and more), except for the co-op campaign. Just right-click on Arma 3 in your Steam Library, go to 'Properties', visit the 'BETAS' tab, and use the drop-down menu to select and install the Apex Sneak Preview build. This build represents a work-in-progress version and is not yet fully representative of the final Arma 3 Apex release."

Yes, I know they announced this a few days ago but I've been busy with E3 things. I have a long list to work through, okay.

Do check out the rest of our E3 2016 posts, previews, odds, ends, and gubbins.
