Arma3-Servers.net Blog Feed en https://arma3-servers.net/ Tue, 30 Nov 2021 14:15 CET Arma3-Servers.net is a Arma3 servers list. Its goal is to provide an efficient way for players to find a server that suits their needs and also for servers owners to get more players on their servers. 60 Arma 3 Art of War DLC raises $155,783 for charity https://arma3-servers.net/blog/616/arma-3-art-of-war-dlc-raises-155783-for-charity/ https://arma3-servers.net/blog/616/arma-3-art-of-war-dlc-raises-155783-for-charity/ Tue, 30 Nov 2021 14:15 CET


To be precise, Bohemia Interactive will donate 100% of their revenue after tax from the Arma 3 Art of War charity DLC to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The total amount raised is $155,783 USD (approximately €138,330 EUR / £116,944 GBP).

Now that the fundraising period is over, the Art of War Charity Pack has been permanently made available for free to all Arma 3 players, just as it was announced[arma3.com] when the DLC was released in February of this year.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1325500/Arma_3_Art_of_War_Charity_Pack/

The Art of War Charity Pack adds an in-game art exhibition to Arma 3, where visitors can see some of the best artwork and screenshots made by the Arma 3 community. The DLC also includes a new singleplayer combat scenario in which players are sent on a mission to recover valuable paintings stolen in a war zone. Other additions are a formal suit, parade uniform, new backpack, various t-shirts, and several props related to art galleries and memorials.

Arma 3 Art of War was available for purchase on Steam for approximately 9 months. You could get the DLC for the standard price of 1.99 USD/EUR/GBP, or, those who wanted to donate more could buy it at the optional higher price tiers of 4.99 USD/EUR/GBP and 9.99 USD/EUR/GBP. All three purchase options included the same content. In the end, about 84.4% of people bought it at the standard price tier of 1.99 USD, 5.4% got it at the middle price tier of 4.99 USD, and 10.2% purchased the highest 9.99 USD price tier.

"We are very grateful to Bohemia Interactive and to all the players who made a donation to the ICRC. Our collaboration, over the years, is a strong example of the synergies that can be developed across communities, offline and online, and this donation will make a clear difference in the life of thousands of people,” said Marek Resich from the Resource Mobilization division at the ICRC.

The $155,783 donation will support the ICRC in their mission to ensure humanitarian protection and assistance for victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence. More information about the ICRC, their activities, and International Humanitarian Law is available on https://www.icrc.org.

https://youtu.be/bVdGJ5P4Peg
Set in the year 2036, Western Sahara takes you to Sefrou-Ramal – a province in the fictional country of Argana. This region has been a hotbed of conflict for many years due to rival tribes, underfunded peacekeeping forces, and a foreign military presence. Here, you will be able to choose from several official singleplayer and/or multiplayer scenarios. This includes the open-world scenario "Extraction", which brings back the "ION Services" private military company faction from Arma 2 for a combat search and rescue mission. The DLC also provides new weapons, vehicle variants, clothing, and gear.



The Western Sahara DLC is now available on Steam for $6.99 USD (€6.99 EUR / £5.99 GBP). If you purchase the DLC within the first week of its release (before November 25), you will receive a 15% launch discount (price with discount applied: $5.94 USD / €5.94 EUR / £5.09 GBP). The Arma 3 base game is currently on sale at 75% off.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • What is Arma 3 Creator DLC?
    Creator DLC is a label for original Arma 3 projects made by third-party developers and published by Bohemia Interactive. This program enables external talent to earn a financial reward for their work, while players get to enjoy more new quality content. For more information, please visit the Arma 3 website[arma3.com].
  • Why is Creator DLC optional to install?
    We have decided to make it optional to have the Creator DLC data installed. This is mainly to avoid regular Arma 3 installations from requiring a lot more additional hard-drive storage, even for those who have not purchased a Creator DLC. Additionally, a Creator DLC's theme or setting might be very different from regular Arma 3 or not everyone might want it to be visible in their game.
  • How do I launch Western Sahara?
    You will need to visit the DLC section in the Arma 3 Launcher, make sure Western Sahara is owned and loaded, then launch the game by clicking the PLAY button.
  • Can I still play together with people who do not own the DLC in multiplayer?
    To enable non-owners to still play on multiplayer servers that make use of Western Sahara content, Rotators Collective has published a "compatibility data for non-owners" via the Steam Workshop. Be aware that access to the DLC's premium Sefrou-Ramal terrain and scenarios remain exclusive to owners of the DLC. Restrictions to the use of non-owned content also apply.

One of these is the open-world scenario "Extraction", which can be played in singleplayer or in co-op online multiplayer with up to four players. The scenario offers players the opportunity to serve as an operator for the ION Services private military company who are sent on a combat search and rescue mission after a war correspondent has been taken captive somewhere in the fictional war-torn desert province of Sefrou-Ramal.

  • Equipment - A gun drone with a modular weapon attachment system, a portable ballistic shield, and a variety of masks like dust goggles, a military-style headset, a ballistic mask, and more.
  • Open-World Scenario: "Extraction" - Search for intel and clues to return a kidnapped war correspondent to safety in a sandbox scenario featuring dynamically randomized contracts, which can be played in both singleplayer and multiplayer co-op with up to 4 players.
  • Multiplayer Mode: "King of the Dunes" - An original spin on the popular community-made sector control multiplayer game mode “King of the Hill”.
  • Multiplayer Mode: "Last Stand" - Defend against waves of enemies in a new co-op game mode for up to 4 players.

SITUATION

Hello to all players and creators in the Arma 3 community! It has been some time since we last provided an overview of the state of Arma 3 development. We have just celebrated the 8th anniversary since initial release, and even in its 9th year, there still are many thousands of first-timers entering the Armaverse. That is incredibly cool, but we can also imagine many have not read through old reports and do not know about our actual support plans. So let us take a look back at the major milestones during 2021, check in with the Live Ops crew, and explain our perspective on the future of Arma 3. Buckle up, this is going to be a long one!
