Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday 20th March 2014
Supported by a brand new trailer, Bohemia Interactive today released the third and final episode for the Arma 3’s campaign. The episode, titled ‘Win’, brings a conclusion to the story of infantry man Ben Kerry – a soldier who finds himself caught in the middle of a Mediterranean flashpoint.
Arma 3's 'The East Wind' campaign consists of three episodes. The first episode - Survive - introduces players to soldier Ben Kerry, who has been stationed in the Republic of Altis & Stratis as part of a NATO peacekeeping operation. After a staged drawdown from the region fails, players have to fight for survival against a better equipped and more powerful enemy. The second episode - Adapt - picks up where the first episode ended, and follows Kerry as he links up with a group of guerrilla fighters, aiming to cripple AAF and CSAT forces. The campaign's final act - Win - continues as the situation escalates even further, and players must deploy all the skills and experience they've gathered to bring the flashpoint to a resolution.
Together with the latest campaign episode, Bohemia Interactive also deployed an expansion of Arma 3's sandbox content. Two new aircraft, the A-164 Wipeout and To-199 Neophron, deliver a whole range of tactical options to the NATO and CSAT factions. Moreover, the A-164 CAS jet, which is a successor to the legendary A-10, is also introduced via the brand new ‘Fixed-Wings’ showcase scenario.
Another addition is the Tempest transport truck, which comes in multiple variants: cargo, refuel, medical, repair, and ammo re-supply. Last but not least, new points of interest have been added to the massive 270 km² Altis terrain, with the most notable locations being the athletics stadium and ghost hotel compound .
After downloading today's automatic update on Steam, people will be able to play the full Arma 3 singleplayer campaign. The exact changelog for the 'Win' update can be found here. Those who have not yet enlisted, can purchase the regular edition of Arma 3 (44.99 EUR/39.99 GBP/59.99 USD) or the Arma 3 Digital Deluxe Edition (49.99 EUR/42.99 GBP/64.99 USD) from Steam and Store.bistudio.com.
