Arma 3 development plans detailed
New DLC, expansion coming soon to the military shooter
Bohemia Interactive has released their development roadmap for Arma 3.
Platform updates are major enhancements to Arma 3, and will be available to everyone who own the game. Extending the Steam Workshop implementation (currently limited to player-created scenarios) to support mods is a key goal. Another important addition to Arma 3 will be the release of the Bootcamp update. This free package will give newcomers a varied introduction to the game, while veteran players can look forward to refinements of certain vanilla features.
Bohemia Interactive will also reinforce Arma 3 with downloadable content. Each exploring a specific theme, Arma 3 DLC will focus upon new sandbox assets, official scenarios, and features. The developers plan says that DLC game features will be free to everyone, while DLC content will be paid.
The first planned DLC is Arma 3 Helicopters, which is scheduled for release in the second half of 2014. The Helicopters DLC should feature new transport helicopters, an option to use Take On Helicopter’s RotorLib Flight Dynamics Model (FDM), plus several new game mechanics. The Helicopters DLC will be followed up by the Arma 3 Marksmen DLC, which should include new weapons and a focused overhaul of certain shooting mechanics.
The studio is also developing a major expansion for Arma 3, which is currently planned for late 2015.
