Arma 3 Contact is out now

Posted on July 25th, 2019 12:52 PM EST

It's here! Or should we say: they are here? We’re proud to announce today’s worldwide release of the Arma 3 Contact spin-off expansion!

Declassified just a few weeks ago (watch announcement trailer), Arma 3 Contact arrives with a military science fiction singleplayer campaign that asks one huge question: what if humanity suddenly discovers extraterrestrial intelligence on Earth?

In the Arma 3 Contact campaign, you take on the role of a NATO drone operator deployed to the (fictional) Eastern European country of Livonia. After the discovery of an unknown subsurface object and the sudden arrival of a massive alien vessel, you are sent out on a reconnaissance mission to investigate the extraterrestrial presence. The priority: to learn who they are and find out why they are here. However, amid all the tension and chaos, armed conflict inevitably unfolds.

On top of the campaign, the Arma 3 Contact expansion brings with it many additions to the wider Arma 3 platform (watch sandbox trailer). The biggest of all is a new 163 square kilometer terrain, which covers the militarized and partly abandoned Nadbór region inside the Polish-speaking country of Livonia. This temperate summer environment is composed of forests, farmland, towns, railroads, the Biela river, and various special landmarks

Other highlights are the additional armed forces, namely the Livonian Defense Force and Russian Spetsnaz, 5 weapons, 2 vehicles, various gear, and a range of free bonus content for all Arma 3 players, including 100+ new decorative props and terrain objects. Furthermore, many of Arma 3’s official multiplayer modes can be played on the expansion's Livonia terrain as well, with new scenarios for Zeus Game Master, Combat Patrol, and Warlords.

To start making first contact, you can now pick up the Arma 3 Contact expansion on Steam with a temporary 10% discount until August 1st. If you are entirely new to Arma 3, we advise getting the Arma 3 Contact Edition or the newly introduced Arma 3 Ultimate Edition, which bundle the Arma 3 base game and downloadable content at a significant discount.

So, when you're ready, let's go say hello to our alien visitors. Enjoy!
