Arma 3 - Nelios


Today we're celebrating the Arma series' 16th anniversary with a free DLC, which returns players to a re-imagination of Malden - the iconic island terrain featured in the very first Arma game.

Malden 2035 spans over 62 km2 in land mass, features 15 towns and villages, and offers many different points of interest. In addition, the Malden DLC delivers a new 12-player cooperative sandbox mode called Combat Patrol, in which you and your unit take on AI enemy forces to complete various mission objectives.

In case you missed it, Malden is also the setting of Bohemia Interactive's new tactical multiplayer shooter Argo. In this free game, you take on the role of a mercenary and fight across unrestricted terrain in a 5-vs-5 matchup. Or you can team up in Argo's 10-player variant of the Combat Patrol coop mode. You can play Argo for FREE on Steam.

OPSUM: Back to the Future: re-building Malden for 2035



EVALUATION:
Terrains have always played a very important role in our games - and a recent Dev-Branch update has brought you a new one: Malden 2035. It might sound familiar to our veteran players, as Malden was one of three islands in our first game, Arma: Cold War Assault. It's not just a simple recreation of the classic terrain, though. We've added new places, structures, and our approach was very different from the creation of our previous terrains. In this OPREP, we'd like to invite you backstage of Malden's development.

In celebration of the Jets DLC take-off two weeks ago, today we've published a brand new episode in the official Arma 3 Community Guide series. The new video examines all of the aspects of jet employment in Arma 3, such as the various types of jets, munitions, sensors, threats, and tactics.

In addition, Arma 3's Creative Director Jay Crowe posted a new devblog, in which he explains the role of jets in the Arma 3 sandbox, describes how the Jets DLC marked the first collaboration with a third-party development team, and offers a brief update on Arma 3's 2017-2018 development roadmap.

Celebrated with a launch trailer, we today released the Arma 3 Jets DLC. The package delivers three air-superiority jets, an Unmanned Aerial Combat Vehicle, a new Showcase scenario, and more. The DLC is complemented by a free Arma 3 platform update, which introduces massive content (literally!) in the form of an aircraft carrier, and implements various new gameplay features related to fixed-wing aircraft.

Arma 3 Jets DLC Key Features
  • F/A-181 Black Wasp II - The F/A-181 Black Wasp II is a fifth-generation, single-seat, twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter jet. The aircraft was designed primarily as an air-superiority fighter, but also has ground attack capabilities. Its additional external hard points enable the aircraft to carry a wide variety of weapons configurations. The Black Wasp is fitted with the required equipment for carrier operations.
  • To-201 Shikra - The To-201 Shikra is a fifth-generation, single-seat, twin-engine, all-weather tactical fighter jet. The aircraft was designed by a CSAT and Russian joint syndicate with the goal to build a highly agile and maneuverable air-superiority fighter. Similar to the F/A-181, the To-201 also has ground attack capabilities, and is able to support various weapons configurations via its conventional pylons, but also its internal weapons bay.
  • A-149 Gryphon - The A-149 Gryphon is a fourth-generation, single-seat, single-engine, and all-weather tactical fighter jet. The aircraft was designed as a multi-role platform at an affordable cost, and unlike some of the larger air-superiority jets, it can also perform well in low-altitude flight. Despite its aging platform, the A-149 has still been upgraded with the newest sensors and weapons systems.
  • Sentinel - The Sentinel is a fifth-generation, state-of-the-art, twin-engine, all-weather tactical Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle (UCAV). The Sentinel was designed primarily as a reconnaissance platform, but can also perform precision ground attacks. It typically operates from an aircraft carrier.
  • Showcase Fighter Jets - Take to the skies above Altis and engage in air-to-air and air-to-ground combat in a brand new Showcase scenario.
The Jets DLC is supported by the 1.70 platform update, which features new content and features. This platform update is free for all owners of Arma 3. Its highlights include:
  • Sensor Overhaul - A new radar interface for targeting guided weapons, powered by advanced Active Radar and Infrared sensor technology.
  • Extended Hitpoints - The damage model of fixed-wing aircraft has been upgraded to the level of detail of other vehicle classes in Arma 3.
  • Dynamic Vehicle Loadouts - Players can now customize their vehicle's armament. In the case of jets, this means you can choose what kind of ordnance each pylon carries.
  • Other Improvements - Various audio enhancements, tweaked controls, several new scripted solutions such as ejection seat emergency procedures, and more.
  • Aircraft Carrier "USS Freedom" (CVN-83) - A nuclear-powered aircraft supercarrier which can carry various aircraft, and supports catapult take-offs and tailhook landings. The aircraft carrier is a static in-game object that can be positioned across the map via the 3D Scenario Editor, but cannot be 'driven'.
  • Surface-to-Air Weapon Systems - The USS Freedom is outfitted with 3 autonomous defensive weapon systems: Praetorian 1C AAA, Mk-49 Spartan SAM, and Mk-21 Centurion SAM.
We hope you'll enjoy the new content, a big thanks for the support, and remember: you can be our wingman anytime!
