Arma 3 Encore Update now live

Arma 3 Encore Update now live
Destroyer ship "USS Liberty", SAM systems, radar sites, and more



The Encore Update is ready for boarding! Download the latest Arma 3 platform update (1.84) on Steam, and enjoy free new bonus content such as the "USS Liberty" destroyer ship, SAM systems, radar sites, anti-radiation missiles, small diameter bombs, plus various other additions and improvements.

The highlights of the Encore Update include:
  • "USS Liberty" Destroyer Ship - The NATO carrier strike group has a new addition; a destroyer-class ship with detailed interiors and new naval fire-support options. It's also capable of launching/recovering small naval vessels and helicopters. The USS Liberty is a static object that can be placed and moved around the map via the in-game Scenario Editor.
  • "MIM-145 Defender" SAM System & "AN/MPQ-105" Radar System - A stationary missile system used by NATO forces that presents a beyond-visual-range threat to even the most modern of aircraft. It can make use of the Data Link connection via the AN/MPQ-106 radar system.
  • "S-750 Rhea" SAM System & "R-750 Cronus" Radar System - The CSAT faction's variant of a stationary long-range surface-to-air missile (SAM) system capable of engaging aerial targets from beyond-visual-range. It works in tandem with the R-750 Cronus radar system connected via the Data Link.
  • Anti-Radiation Missiles & Small Diameter Guided Bomb - Both NATO and CSAT receive new anti-radiation missiles, which are designed to auto-lock on ground targets that have their active radar sensor switched on. NATO fighter jets can also be equipped with new, relatively small, air-to-surface precision-guided bombs.
The new bonus assets were created by third-party developer BRAVO ZERO ONE Studios to celebrate the 1-year anniversary of Arma 3 Jets DLC. They are designed to provide even more opportunities for diverse and immersive military operations, while introducing more balanced options for ground-to-air combat and vice versa.



Besides the new sandbox content, version 1.84 also implements various adjustments to all of the official Arma 3 scenarios and campaigns released so far. These improvements are aimed at making sure that even the older playable content makes optimal use of the assets and gameplay features that were introduced to the game over the past few years.

The full update changelog is available for inspection on the Arma 3 Dev Hub.

See you in-game!
