Just before heading into the winter holiday break, our developers still have one surprise for you in store: the beta version of the Arma 3 Apex: Old Man open-world singleplayer scenario is now available on the Steam Workshop!
Arma 3 Apex: Old Man is free for everyone, but since the scenario takes place on the premium Tanoa terrain, it does require players to own the Arma 3 Apex expansion. By distributing the beta version via the Steam Workshop as an optional download, users do not need to switch to Arma 3’s Dev-Branch to participate in its public beta testing.
The story of “Old Man” is set within the shared universe of Arma 3’s “The East Wind” and “Apex Protocol” campaigns (a.k.a. the Armaverse). You play as a retired L…Read more >

It’s been over a year since we shared our third-party DLC pitch invitation, and today we’re pleased to finally announce the first Arma 3 Creator DLC: Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany – which will release within two weeks from now on Monday April 29.
As we introduce this package in greater detail, we’d first like to briefly talk about what’s been happening behind the scenes and explain what you can expect from third-party DLC overall.
For quite some time we’ve been thinking about how we can provide more quality content to our players, and make it possible for our most talented content creators to earn a financial reward. It had to be open and fair to everyone – as well as feasible given our own availa…Read more >

If we look back on Arma 3’s development, we can see it’s gone through multiple stages. Each of those came with a certain focus. The Alpha and Beta were of course very much about building up the core platform. Then, after the Gold release, we turned a large part of our attention to user content creation (Eden 3D Editor, Steam Workshop, Arma 3 Launcher). Next was Arma 3 Apex, which was an opportunity to take the series to a fresh new locale, but also represented the culmination of platform development in terms of gameplay features and multiplayer systems. The two years after that were largely about vehicle warfare and delivering diverse singleplayer experiences – all the way up to the armor-enhancing Tanks DLC/1.8…Read more >

Even though Arma 3 was, we dare say, our most stable Arma at launch, the game has certainly come a very long way since then. In the past years, it has pushed beyond its Apex with even more content and platform updates. We've said it before, and we'll continue doing so; all of this was possible thanks to our community.
Besides supporting our DLC strategy and constantly providing us with valuable feedback, you've helped grow the game into a platform with an incredible amount of user-made content that is enjoyed by the largest number of players to date. Arma 3 is definitely he…

Set in the distant future, Lost Dragons aims to provide a multiplayer total conversion experience for ArmA 3. Players find themselves members of corporate entities, sent to a planet beyond our solar system with the objective of recovering a "Dragon-class" aerial warship. These are old machines of war however, left abandoned as humanity fell during years past. Thus not only must the Dragon warship be found, it must be reactivated and repaired, all while an opposing team(s) tries to hinder and reverse said progress; multiple companies are now seeking such a rare prize.

Bohemia Interactive today released a brand new video to further introduce the role of the ground vehicle crewman in Arma 3.

The new video takes a closer look at each of these crew member’s responsibilities, while exploring some of the core principles of ground vehicle combat.
In continuation of the official Arma 3 Community Guide series, the Ground Vehicle Crew video is narrated by Andrew Gluck (better known as Dslyecxi, former service member and leader of the popular Arma community group Sha…

Bohemia Interactive today announced that one million Czech koruna from the Arma 3 Karts DLC sales will be donated to the Czech Red Cross. Arma 3 Karts, which was originally revealed as an April Fools‘ joke, was released about one month ago as a fun little sidestep in Arma 3’s typically military sandbox. Its primary purpose was to test Arma 3’s experimental approach to DLC, which Bohemia Interactive explained in more detail in their recent devblog.

Arma has always asked a lot of its players. Yet, although it can be a challenge, the depth and diversity of Arma's gameplay has long been one of its greatest strengths. Unlocking that potential, though, is no simple matter; nevertheless, this is the main objective of the Arma 3 Bootcamp Update.
Below, we set out the ways we've sought to achieve this goal.

A few weeks after the studio shared its 2014-2015 development roadmap for Arma 3 (announcing upcoming DLCs and a major expansion), Bohemia Interactive today posted a new devblog to explain how it aims to prevent a split in the Arma 3 playerbase.
DLC often fractures a game's playerbase, which is most noticeable in the multiplayer environment, where such a split prevents players that do not own DLC from joining friends who do own it. Given the nature of Arma 3 as an open platform, Bohemia Interactive set itself the goal to develop an alternative solution. While the new strategy is somewhat experimental, Bohemia Interactive's plan is to make all Arma 3 downloadable content available to all owners of Arma 3, wi…Read more >
