Bohemia Interactive has today released the first part of their Arma 3 campaign entitled Survive which comes in at a respectable 1.4 GB and is available now. The team aim to bring more episodes in the near future, but this latest release offers a more complete version of the game for those who might have previously been sitting on the fence. For a further look at the new campaign, check out the accompanying trailer and our video review.
About Arma 3’s Campaign:
In Arma 3’s campaign, players take on the role of Ben Kerry, a soldier who is a part of the NATO peacekeeping operation in the Mediterranean. Five years after the bloody civil war in the Republic of Altis & Stratis came to an end, NATO has started to withdraw its forces from the region – unknowingly creating the conditions for a Mediterranean flashpoint. Kerry’s unit, ‘Task Force Aegis’ – together with a clandestine group of UKSF operators – is soon caught up in a situation beyond their control, and trapped in a fight for survival.
Besides new playable content, the first campaign episode also provides extra building blocks for Arma 3 content creators. These come in the form of new weapons, animations, 3D objects, and scripted modules. More free content, including new vehicles, is expected to be released together with the next campaign episodes. The exact release dates of the second (Adapt) and third (Win) campaign episodes will be announced later.
