Second campaign DLC coming to Arma 3 in January
Second episode to continue the storyline
Bohemia Interactive today announced the release plans of the second campaign episode for Arma 3. Picking up from where the first episode left off, the campaign is set to continue with the release of the Adapt episode on Tuesday January 21st, 2014.
The official campaign for Arma 3 unfolds over three episodes: Survive, Adapt, and Win. In the first episode, players were introduced to Ben Kerry, a regular soldier who’s part of a NATO-peacekeeping mission in the Mediterranean. After a botched withdrawal trapped Kerry’s unit on the island of Stratis, in the midst of a flashpoint, they attempt an escape to the neighboring island of Altis.
Included in the sandbox are 3 additional vehicles for the Altis Armed Forces faction. The Wy-55 Hellcat helicopter has previously seen action with the British Armed Forces, and now provides a maneuverable and armed aerial reconnaissance platform for the AAF. The FV-720 Mora is a tracked Infantry Fighting Vehicle best employed in combined arms warfare. Finally, the new MBT-52 tank is brought in to the round out the faction's war fighting options.
Bohemia Interactive will be releasing the second episode’s new sandbox content even sooner. The vehicles, plus other new content such as black versions of the MX rifle family, infra-red grenades and the LRPS sniper scope, will be made available on Wednesday December 11th via an automatic update on Steam.
Arma 3 was released on PC earlier this year.
