Ships Ahoy - Arma III

The Arma 3 website announces that Arma III has deployed, and Bohemia Interactive's military shooter sequel is now available worldwide as either a standard edition or as a Digital Deluxe edition. The game is available at retail and via digital distribution through Steam directly, or through the BIS Store, which fulfils through Steam anyway. The launch trailer shows off gameplay, and here's word:

OUT NOW - Available in digital and physical retail stores worldwide, Bohemia Interactive is proud to announce today’s much-anticipated release of Arma 3. The brand new launch trailer introduces players to the authentic, diverse and open combat in Arma 3’s massive military sandbox.

Set on the Mediterranean islands of Altis (270 km˛) and Stratis (20 km˛), Arma 3 features 12 singleplayer showcases, 3 factions showcases, 9 multiplayer scenarios, 10 firing drill challenges, more than 20 vehicles and 40 weapons, 5 factions, the scenario editor and modding support. The post-launch campaign will be made available via free DLC episodes after release. The complete overview of content can be found here.

“We’re incredibly proud of the release of Arma 3, as well as of the unique collaboration with the people who joined for the early-access development. We experienced some significant setbacks in the past years, but the fantastic public response to the Alpha and Beta kept us going,” said Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, Project Lead on Arma 3. “Together we’ve made a game that truly meets its potential - while establishing a platform to build upon and grow even further. Our long-term commitment to Arma 3, in combination with the creative modding community and Steam Workshop, means this is just the kick off. We thank everyone for their splendid support and welcome you all to join our journey ahead.”

People can purchase the regular Arma 3 (44.99 EUR/39.99 GBP/59.99 USD) or the Arma 3 Digital Deluxe Edition (49.99 EUR/42.99 GBP/64.99 USD) from Steam and Store.bistudio.com. A boxed version of Arma 3 is also available at many of the major retailers.

Last but not least, Arma 3 Alpha and Arma 3 Beta participants will be able to play the final game after downloading the automatic update on Steam. Visit this page for answers to some of the more frequently asked questions.

Over reacting much? lol

It's not like this is some kind of surprise. BIS announced they would do this and why months ago. With the MP, editor and user content (not to mention compatible with Arma 2 mods/missions/islands/etc) this is no big deal. The SP campaign is just a nice to have feature, always has been with Arma. Clearly some of you are new around here.

Yeah, I'm new to gaming. Of course, Operation Flashpoint and the other ARMA games had no campaign at release, too? Right? RIGHT?

Btw, some people enjoy playing campaigns and even buy games to play them instead of the multiplayer content. These are all noobies, of course.
 
Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

Is this some kind of joke? After the crappy campaigns in Arma 1 and Arma 2 they expect us to believe that they will put out proper campaigns in "Free DLC" ?`

Wtf.. developing a games BASIC FEATURE SET post release is a no sale for me. Sell shit when it is done, not 2 years before!

So it's just the Multiplayer that's been released so far? Not the full game?

I Pre-purchased for the Alpha when it was out, haven't played any of the Beta. This is just the same thing as the Beta now?

It's a full price beta now WITHOUT THE CAMPAIGN! That's quite an awkward release: give us your money now, get the rest of the game later. Or maybe not. Stunned
