« Willkommen! It's time for you to return to the Cold War. With its bombastic amounts of new original content, the Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany Creator DLC for Arma 3 invites you to live and breathe the military conflict between the two Germanies in the 1980s. Ride into armored combat against a determined enemy that easily outnumbers you. Experience warfare from the perspective of infantry reinforced with APCs. Or breach the historic inner German border to force the enemy’s hand in battle. Which side of the wall will you fight for? Besides the West and East German armies, this DLC pack also includes Denmark as a smaller but viable military faction.
Official DLC Description

This Cold War-era themed DLC is the first of the premium DLCs to be released as part of the Creator DLC initiative.

The star of the DLC is the new Weferlingen terrain, a new 419 km²-sized map modelled on real-world parts of Germany's northern plains. It is the largest terrain to be featured in the series to date, and is also available in a separate winter variant.

In addition to vehicles and firearms, a whole set of military uniforms/suits, backpacks, personal protective equipment in the form of hats, helmets and vests, along with various civilian/law enforcement outfits have been included for both the primary West and East German factions (alongside the Danish/Polish sub-factions). Seventeen multiplayer scenarios are available to play, as well as up to eight German radio protocols recorded specifically for use with the DLC's content.

All proceeds made from the sale of Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany are shared between the developers of the DLC (Vertexmacht, the creators), the publisher (Bohemia Interactive), and the digital distributor (Valve).

NOTE: The content in GM - CWG is completely optional to acquire. Unlike inhouse DLCs developed and released by Bohemia Interactive, content is only downloaded if the user purchases the DLC.

Optionally, players can also download a trial version from the Workshop which is intended for multiplayer compatibility purposes. The terrains and campaign are not fully accessible however, and vehicles still cannot be driven or commanded outside of the editor without purchasing the DLC.


Post-release assets will be gradually added via patches to the DLC's content library and expanded over time as they are completed. All additions are free of charge for both existing and future owners of the DLC.
