Arma 3 Website announces the release of the first installment in the
campaign for Bohemia Interactive's military shooter sequel, saying the update is
now automatically available through Steam (thanks
PC Gamer). They offer
a brief trailer teasing
the content, and the following word:
In Arma 3ís
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.

I don't get a sense of what the mission or story is beyond "Country X is in turmoil." I haven't picked this up yet, since I was waiting for the SP game. I guess I'll have to wait a bit more for a review to see if the missions are any good.
HAHAHA..."decorated"...right. The same idiot who claimed that communist re-education camps were not that big of a deal. I can see why you love him.
