Arma 3’s Alpha Anniversary celebrated with tanks

Apparently, today marks the one year anniversary of Arma 3‘s alpha hitting Steam. In honour of this, Bohemia Interactive want to say “tanks.” Or, uh… “thanks.” With a tank.

A free update released today for Arma 3 adds in the M2A4 Slammer UP (Urban Purpose) tank variant, which apparently differs from the regular M2A4 Slammer by having reinforced rear armour and a remote-controller turret. However, this extra weight had to be compensated for, so it’s only got a 105mm cannon, while the basic tank has a 120mm.

The update should automatically download when you next log into Steam.

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.
