One million Czech koruna made from sales of the Arma 3 Karts DLC is being donated to the Czech Red Cross.
Bohemia have announced that Arma 3 Karts – an April Fools’ joke that later sprang to life as a test of Bohemia’s approach to DLC that wouldn’t fracture the playerbase – sold sufficiently well that they’re donating a million Czech koruna from its sales to charity. Which isn’t quite as big as it sounds when you convert it to the other currencies – it’s about £29,000 GBP or $50,000 USD – but is still a fairly hefty sum.
It’s also pretty damn good when you consider that Arma 3 Karts itself is being sold for £1.19, or as part of the Arma 3 DLC Bundle (which includes the upcoming Helicopters and Marksmen DLC) for £16.99. If this is only a portion of the sales, then I suspect it sold really rather well.
Arma 3 Karts is out now. The Helicopter DLC is due out in September, while the Marksmen DLC is due out in early 2015. You can have a gander at this news item for more details on those two.Related to this article
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
