Those happy chaps and chap-esses over at Bohemia Interactive and Koch Media have announced that Arma 3 will hit the PC on 12 September.
As is now standard for every game ever made, the game will also be available in a shiny Digital Deluxe Edition form as well as a boxed Limited Deluxe Edition. The Digital Deluxe Edition will cost you £39.99 – a tenner more than the standard edition, and the prices of both will apparently go up at launch – and I have no idea how much the Limited Deluxe Edition will cost you. It’s listed rather cheaply on a few retail websites (£29.84 on, right now) though.
The Limited Deluxe Edition of Arma 3 apparently comes in a “hologram slip case” with a key card, a map of Altis, and a “printed game control overview”, which sounds pretty useful for idiots like us that could barely work out how to turn on the headlights of a vehicle.
It’ll also pack in “digital content”, which I guess is what will be in the Digital Deluxe Edition – a soundtrack, a “digital tactical guide”, “digital maps”, and a copy of the artist formerly known as Operation Flashpoint, which now goes by Arma: Cold War Assault.
In short, if you’re a fan of getting shot by over long distances by AI soldiers you didn’t even know were there, 12 September is the day to mark on your calendars.Related to this article

When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really 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.
