Bohemia Interactive have posted a new blog that discusses their 2014/15 roadmap for Arma 3, which has completed its episodic rollout of the single player campaign. Now the studio looks to additional content.
They want to be clear that their strategy is "features are free, content is paid," and they don't want to split the multiplayer player-base. Their first DLC is to add "appropriate depth and breadth" to helicopters.
Bohemia are handing Arma 3 players the powers of a Game Master in the now released Zeus DLC, letting someone take charge of multiplayer sessions to "create, manipulate or expand" scenarios in real-time.
We can now "curate the experience" of other Arma 3 players on-the-fly with an "intuitive real-time editor," letting us tweak events or create all-new ones. The Zeus DLC is free.
The second episode of the ArmA III campaign has just released. 'Adapt' continues on and we fill the boots of soldier Ben Kerry trapped on Altis amid a Mediterranean flashpoint. The kid gloves are off.
This episode encourages us into "guerrilla tactics in the face of against a stronger, better-equipped enemy." The first episode was 'Survive', and the next is 'Win'.
Bohemia Interactive has announced the Make Arma Not War contest which will be offering €500,000 in prizes for developers who create the best mods for ArmA III.
