EVALUATION

Hello, my name is Václav "Sarge" Kerber and I've been working at Bohemia Interactive for over 3 years. During the development of Arma 3 Apex: Old Man, I worked as a quest designer, responsible for the story and the scenario's general flow. I'd like to share with you what I learned on the project, including some of the daily challenges we faced and the ultimate goals behind our 'what if' approach to open world quest design.

Bohemia Interactive is hosting a sale on Steam for Arma 3 between May 28th and June 1st (10 AM PDT / 7 PM CEST). Additionally, we're celebrating the six-year anniversary of Arma 3's first premium DLC - Arma 3 Karts - by making it available for free for the duration of the sale. You can simply add the DLC to your Steam library via its store page and it will be yours forever.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/288520/Arma_3_Karts/

The Arma 3 Karts DLC – a small but fun sidestep in our typically military sandbox – adds a 20hp 4-stroke engine go-kart, 5 Time Trials races, plus various assets related to karting, such as a race driver character, a motorsport marshal and starter pistol, and various plastic barriers to build your own race tracks in Arma 3's scenario editor.

https://youtu.be/cSAJdRpqltM
Starting its life as an April Fools' joke, Arma 3 Karts is Arma 3's first premium downloadable content (DLC). It was released six years ago in 2014 on the 29th of May, and served as a pilot test of Arma 3's DLC 'content-licensing' technology[www.bohemia.net] – a new system designed to prevent a split in our game's multiplayer community between DLC owners and non-owners. After Arma 3 Karts' first million of Czech koruna in proceeds was donated to charity[www.bohemia.net], it maintained its popularity and went on to become the best-selling Arma 3 DLC to date.

Besides the Karts DLC giveaway, these are all deals on offer between May 28th and June 1st:

Grab your art supplies, tablet, or mouse – we've just announced the Arma 3 Art of War contest[arma3.com] and are calling on you to get creative!

By taking part, you'll be helping to develop the "Arma 3 Art of War" charity DLC. This small but meaningful DLC will consist of the contest's winning entries, plus two singleplayer scenarios developed by Bohemia that will make use of the new assets. It is scheduled for release on Steam in Q4 2020 at an expected price of 2.99 USD / EUR / GBP. 100% of Bohemia's proceeds after tax from this DLC will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for their response to the COVID-19 pandemic and continued efforts in protecting the lives and dignity of those affected by armed conflict. After approximately 10 months of sales/fundraising, the charity DLC then becomes permanently free for all of you to enjoy.

https://youtu.be/dhMfUciqSNk
As for the contest, it is open in 4 different categories; props, character accessories, character clothing – plus a special 2D artwork category in any medium on the theme of International Humanitarian Law in future conflict. If you're interested, you can learn about the challenges that new technologies present for organisations such as the ICRC here[www.icrc.org], on their website.

Or if you'd rather, you can wait for our addition to the DLC's playable content, where contest entries will be lovingly showcased and the topic explored as part of a virtual exhibition, hosted by Arma 3's very own fictional NGO, the International Development & Aid Project (IDAP). In addition, we'll also be adding a short singleplayer scenario, featuring the winning entries from the 3D asset contest categories.



Besides supporting a charitable cause, there are also a few other incentives for entering the contest, including splendid prizes[arma3.com]. 1st place winners will have their choice of a Wacom Intuos S drawing tablet or a collection of professional Derwent art sets, plus a copy of the sumptuously illustrated book, "Art and War", a limited edition Arma 3 silver medal, a back-catalog of all our games, and an Art of War T-shirt. Runners-up will also receive a medal, our games, and the T-shirt, as well as the book with a fine collection of sketching pencils for 2nd place winners, and a handy sketching wallet for drawing on the go for 3rd. Last but not least, there's also the prestige of getting your name in Arma 3's credits and the fun of seeing your own work in-game as official content – a great addition for any portfolio!

If you'd like more information about the Arma 3 Art of War contest and DLC, be sure to check out the web page here[arma3.com]. If you want to enter, please read through the Contest Rules[arma3.com], see what's available from the Contest Resources[forums.bohemia.net], and fill out the Submission Form[forms.gle] in full.

The closing date for all submissions is July 15th 2020, 12am CET (GMT +1). Good luck to all of you looking to enlist!]]>

EVALUATION:



Hello Arma 3 community!

It has been exactly one year since Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany was released.
Early on we made it clear that we are dedicated to continuing our post-release support by adding more content in free, follow-up updates. To make good on this promise, last year’s 1.1 update[dev.arma3.com] saw the addition of more armored assets and the introduction of the Polish Army faction.

In this blog today we want to give you an outlook on the upcoming 1.2 update and highlight the new aerial units that we will be releasing as part of Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany.


West Germany

PAH-1

West Germany will receive the PAH-1 Anti-Tank Helicopter. This was the only AT-Helicopter in the world (at the time) that could complete a full looping. Highly agile and extremely speedy, it provides the West German Army with specialist ninjas in the sky that will stop enemy tank formations. Using extremely powerful HOT-1 missiles, it can do so from up to 6 kilometers away.

The unarmed VBH-1 variant is deployed for scouting and transport.






CH-53G

The CH-53G is here to do all the heavy lifting of equipment and troops. It can carry multiple squads of infantry and load light vehicles using Vehicle-In-Vehicle technology. Bigger vehicles can be slingloaded to make battles even more dynamic and exceedingly mobile.




Do 28 D-2

Further expanded will be the capability of air-lifting troops with the introduction of the Luftwaffe’s Do 28 D-2. This is a STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) capable airframe that handles paratrooper and medevac operations. It needs only a very short runway (or highway) to take off and, in a pinch, a dusty road will also suffice.
Parachutists using the T-10 Static Parachute will be able to drop anywhere from this workhorse.






East Germany

Mi-2

East Germany will receive their first Attack Helicopter: the Mi-2. Produced by their Polish neighbors, it was introduced to further the nation’s aviation with a focus on ground support.
Small and versatile, this aircraft is used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Air Force) as both transport and attack helicopter. The latter comes equipped with either a quadruple PKT mount or unguided rockets, plus a fixed 23mm autocannon.




L-410 UVP

The L-410 UVP is a STOL aircraft built in Czechoslovakia and used by the East German Air Force as transport for parachutists and cargo. A saloon variant of this aircraft is dedicated to transporting high ranking generals and the political elite.
East German Parachutists will deploy from this aircraft using their RS-9 static parachute.




Poland

Mi-2 Variants

The Polish forces receive a near-endless influx of Mi-2 variants. This ranges from passenger transport with a door gunner (Mi-2T) to an armed-to-the-teeth Mi-2URP-G. This particular variant carries a 23mm fixed autocannon, four anti-tank missiles, and four anti-air missile launchers. You can customize the loadout entirely and mix and match as desired.



But Poland deploys even more exotic variants of the Mi-2:
For example, the Mi-2 Platan. A mine-layer device was fitted into the rear door that allows for quickly building minefields using PNM-114 Anti-Tank mines.
Also, there is the Mi-2Ch: This is a variant equipped for chemical reconnaissance and fitted with a device to generate smoke screens.




Civilian Aviation

A lot of the aircraft fielded by the military have found their way into civilian use over the years.
The VBH-1 will be available as police scout and emergency air-rescue, and the Mi-2 comes as an agricultural crop duster, transport, air-rescue, and law enforcement version.






As with the previous patches, this update too will find its way to the CDLC RC Branch first for public testing. There is still a bit of work left for us to complete, but we are aiming for this to happen in the following weeks so that it may reach you this summer.

As always we are looking forward to your feedback and suggestions during that time.

Signed,

The Global Mobilization Development Team]]>

“La mission est sacrée, tu l’exécutes jusqu’au bout et si besoin, en opérations, au péril de ta vie.” – The Legionnaire’s Code of Honor, Art. 6.

Bienvenue! Today we're officially releasing the Arma 3 Apex: Old Man open-world singleplayer scenario. This new scenario is free for everyone who owns the Arma 3 Apex expansion. In support of the release, Arma 3 and all of its downloadable content will also be on sale with discounts of up to 70% between April 14-21.

https://youtu.be/AkffiFKrozM

How to play Arma 3 Apex: Old Man?
If you already own Arma 3 and the Arma 3 Apex expansion, you just need to download the latest Arma 3 update (1.98) on Steam. Afterwards, launch the game, go to SINGLEPLAYER in the main menu, click on SCENARIOS, and select Old Man.



In Arma 3 Apex: Old Man, you assume the role of a retired Legionnaire living on the South Pacific island of Tanoa. When a new strain of malaria causes yet another humanitarian crisis, and local authorities fail to distribute an effective vaccine to the civilian population, you're tipped off about a possible plot. Together with a former military contact, you attempt to avert a catastrophic power play in the region.



The new scenario drops you into Tanoa’s 100 square kilometer tropical terrain with just a few instructions. It’s up to you to find your way around, gather intel, obtain weapons and equipment, and decide on the best tactics to accomplish objectives. While the scenario aims to offer an authentic experience, you do have access to a few convenience features, such as the option to wait and skip time, and the ability to fast travel between known safe houses.



Arma 3 Apex: Old Man provides more than 10 hours of playtime. It's released together with a free platform update for Arma 3 (1.98). This update adds new static machine gun variants and several other assets to the game, and implements various fixes and improvements. The full changelog for update 1.98 can be found on the Arma 3 website[dev.arma3.com].



The beta version of the Arma 3 Apex: Old Man scenario was originally released in December last year via the Arma 3 Steam Workshop. If you helped playtest the beta version, we recommend to unsubscribe from the Steam Workshop item and restart the scenario to avoid compatibility issues.

Good luck out there!
