Arma 3 Zeus DLC announced
Free update will bring new multiplayer concept to the shooter
Bohemia Interactive has announced the first planned DLC for Arma 3: Zeus.
Coming in the second quarter of this year, the free Zeus DLC delivers a new form of multiplayer, in which players can take on the role of Game Master and curate the online battles of other players.
Inspired by popular tabletop games, a limited number of players can assume the role of Game Master, and influence the multiplayer experience of those with boots on the ground. Watching the battlefield from a bird's-eye view, wielding a real-time editor, Zeus can create, manipulate or expand mission content to generate new stories and a flow of challenges.
The Zeus multiplayer concept works across all familiar multiplayer game types, such as Team Deathmatch and Sector Control, where players can either work with or go up against Zeus. The most distinctive game type is Zeus Game Master. Here, Game Masters are entirely free to create objectives, spawn units, and steer players across terrains.
Arma 3 was released for PC last Fall.
