Bohemia Interactive took a risk releasing ARMA 3 with no campaign mode included but fortunately gamers don’t have to wait long for the first campaign to launch.
The first campaign, called Survive, will be released as free DLC on Thursday 31 October and players will take on the role of a regular soldier called Ben Keery stationed in the Republic of Altis & Stratis.
“Our first campaign episode, ‘Survive’, introduces players to Ben Kerry, a regular soldier who’s part of a NATO peacekeeping mission in the Mediterranean. Following a couple of years of uneasy cease-fire, this US-led deployment is now in the process of a staged drawdown. The vacuum left by withdrawing forces is being rapidly filled by the opposing CSAT faction, creating the conditions for, one might say, a flashpoint” , explains Jay Crowe, Creative Director on ARMA 3.
“Of course, it’s not just about our own story, but another opportunity to provide yet more building blocks for the platform – new weapons, animations, 3D objects, scripted modules – each designed to grant content creators even greater freedom to create and share their own content. Looking forward to the forthcoming episodes, we’ll continue to expand Arma 3’s sandbox with additions such as new vehicles.”
This the first part of the three part single player campaign and the next two are still to be dated by Bohemia. Now check out the new Survive screens…
