First Arma III campaign episode out October 31

"Survive" campaign for military shooter being released as free DLC on Halloween.

The first campaign episode for military shooter Arma III--titled Survive--will be released on October 31, Bohemia Interactive announced today. The downloadable content will be available as a free download.

Arma III launched this summer with no campaign content, a decision that was not made lightly, according to Bohemia Interactive. Two additional campaign episodes--Adapt and Win--will be released later.

In Survive, players will take on the role of a soldier named Ben Kerry, who is part of a NATO peacekeeping mission in the Mediterranean.

"Following a couple of years of uneasy cease-fire, this US-led deployment is now in the process of a staged drawdown. The vacuum left by withdrawing forces is being rapidly filled by the opposing CSAT faction, creating the conditions for, one might say, a flashpoint," Arma III creative director Jay Crowe said.

In addition to the story content, Arma III's Survive campaign will introduce new weapons, animations, 3D objects, and scripted modules for players to create content with. Future episodes will add new vehicles, Bohemia Interactive said.

im a hater, but arma's where its at.

Don't like one game mode?  just switch to one of the dozens of others.  Heck they even have small death match maps out just like other shooters if you cant stand the distances.

Awesome. I'm glad to have backed this sim.
Community created missions are already awesome, I'm looking forward to the episodic approach for the singleplayer campaign.

It's hard to beat the value this product offers - Great support, editors, mod tools, we can host our own servers - it contains all the good stuff one expects from PC releases.

Great job, Bohemia.

Hell yeah, and on halloween, very nice! I'll be happy to see this one hit. Great game, and it's already topped the highest amount of play hours of any other game on my steam list.
