You can now download the free Arma 3 Zeus DLC, developer Bohemia Interactive has announced.
First announced in February, Zeus is a new mode that takes inspiration from tabletop games such as Dungeons & Dragons. One player assumes the role of Game Master. Viewing the battlefield from a bird’s-eye perspective, the Game Master creates, manipulates, and expands the multiplayer experience in real-time for other players, just as a Dungeon Master would in a Dungeons & Dragons game. The easy-to-use editor enables you to spawn units, set objectives, change the weather conditions, start music, and much more.
You can play Arma 3 Zeus in a Game Master mode which starts you off with a blank canvas, or with the familiar cooperative, team deathmatch, and sector controls modes. It is also compatible with custom player-created scenarios.
The Arma 3 Zeus DLC has been added automatically to the Steam Library of all owners of Arma 3, so if you own it, you can start playing right now.
