Arma III Deluxe version revealed

Premium bundle features hologram slip case, Altis Island map, soundtrack, and classic title Arma: Cold War Assault.

Bohemia Interactive today announced a Limited Deluxe Edition of military shooter Arma III.

Due out September 12 on PC, the bundle includes a hologram slip case, special key card, map of the Altis Island, and a printed game control overview.

The Arma III Limited Deluxe Edition also features digital content, including the game's soundtrack, a digital tactical guide, unspecified digital maps, and a copy of Arma: Cold War Assault.

No price for the Arma III premium bundle was announced.

As announced last week, Arma III will release without its single-player campaign. This mode will be released after launch across three free expansion episodes. The first episode, Survive, will be made available about a month after Arma III launches. The following expansions, Adapt and Win, will release "in the months thereafter."

At launch, players will have access to the island terrains of Altis (270 km²) and Stratis (20 km²), 12 single-player missions, three faction showcases, nine multiplayer scenarios, 10 firing drill challenges, over 20 vehicles and 30 weapons, and modding support.

Gamers can participate in the game's beta today by purchasing the game from Steam and the Bohemia Interactive store for $44.99.

Arma 3 deluxe? yeah i think a game needs more than 1 map, a campaign, and more than 8 guns before you can make a deluxe

Too bad BIS totally dumbed down ARMA 3... Clearly trying to please the Battlefield crowd.

This game has a feel and experience all of it's own....sometimes the controls can be a bit clunky or the physics can gimp out fantastically but i have never felt in such control of a character as i do in the arma games everything just has a sense of place and importance way beyond normal fps mechanics and i'm saying this as a total noob when it comes to Arma but i love it!!....does anyone get what i mean or am i just loosing my mind :P

2 AAA PC exclusives in one month . Rome 2 and ArmA 3 , can't wait . Whenever I play any game from Total War or ArmA series , it is almost impossible to leave the room . One of very few game franchises that I can play whole day without any break .

I'm currently having a blast just flying around the island in a helicopter on the Beta. This game is sooo good.

Looks like it is going to be better than Pay2Winfield4. At least I wont have a 9 year old kicking me for using a shotgun.

Awesome, glad I waited. It's not often that I get a physical copy of a game, but this game definitely deserves it. 

...that and the amount of space it'll take on my HDD would be insane.

Hmm, mildly disappointing since I bought into the Alpha I wasn't expecting a retail box, I would have waited if I'd known. 

At least I got it for 30$.

@Halloll If it's anything like Arma 2, you will be able to launch the game DRM free from a .exe within the game's folder.

@DIGN Surely you'll still need to install the game to your HDD anyway......?

@B74kD37H Same! unfortunately I will have to settle for Battlefield 4 on PS4 with it's shitty rented servers.

@gilldominic @DIGN Yes, but I'm mainly referring to the installer. Then installer and the game take up large amounts of space. I wasn't going to get it on Steam, but from the official site. 

I also plan on building a new rig from scratch really soon (within the month) and having an installation disc is a time and life saver.
