FROM: High Command TO: Arma 3 Users INFO: Arma 3 Contact, Update 1.94, Global Mobilization Update PRECEDENCE: Flash https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/2799889/922ba471a532ce0598e92ddb98dd912beb1452a9.jpg SITUATION After several sneaky teasers, the newest Arma 3 expansion was announced to all Earthlings, and is scheduled for arrival on July 25. In today's report we'll provide a recap of all decoded Arma 3 Contact intel, and throw in a few more bits of information. Rounding things out are a look at some technical changes in Contact's 1.94 platform update, as well as how Creator DLC (like Global Mobilization) is going to be updated. Full SITREP
The straight-faced military simulation of Arma 3 will get a little weirder with its next expansion, named Contact, where serious soldiermen will encounter and investigate aliens. Expect strange lights in the sky, unknown aircraft, strange energy signatures, glowing orbs, the lot. It doesn’t look like some kooky Stalin vs. Martians nonsense, mind, treating first contact with a suspected alien species seriously. Which sounds pretty great to me. It brings a big new sandbox map, with 163 square kilometres of kinda-real-ish Eastern Europe, for regular Arma activities too. Anyway, here, come meet some aliens in the announcement trailer. (more…)
Bohemia Interactive has unveiled an all-new "spin-off expansion" for Arma 3, its ultra-realistic first-person military combat simulator. Entitled "Contact" (a play on the first word Arma's automated soldier voices utter when they spot an enemy), the expansion will see players take on the role of a NATO drone operator in Eastern Europe during humanity's first contact with aliens. Wait, what?  That's right, aliens, as in weirdos from another planet: "When a massive alien vessel suddenly enters the atmosphere, you are sent to investigate the extraterrestrial visitors and determine their intentions. However, amid the tension and chaos, armed conflict inevitably unfolds. Over the course of the campaign, players will engage in field science, electronic warfare, and combat reconnaissance, in an experience delivered in authentic Arma style."  There will be shooting, as you'd expect from Arma, but much of the campaign will be focused on other, more cerebral activities, including studying alien anomalies with a mini UGV sampling later and CBRN defense equipment, and using a new Spectrum Device tool to control the electromagnetic spectrum for navigation, intel, and deception purposes.  "Many of us have wondered if humanity is alone in the universe. I, for one, want to believe we are not. The premise of intelligent life visiting Earth from outer space has fascinated me since childhood, and combining that with the military authenticity of Arma 3 always seemed like it would make for a very cool and unique experience", project lead Joris-Jan van ‘t Land said. "After our team’s previous project—Laws of War DLC—proved that players enjoy gameplay that’s a little different, our team felt motivated to go for it. I am personally very grateful for the opportunity to explore this theme, and I want to thank all Arma 3 players for their support and making it possible for this dream to come true."    Arma 3 Contact will add 163 square kilometers of new terrain in the fictional Eastern European nation of Livonia. The Livonian Defense Force and Russian Spetsnaz factions will join the party with new weapons, vehicles, and gear including the Promet Assault Rifle, RPK-12 LMG, AKU-12 carbine, CBRN clothing, masks, and backpacks, and a tractor—this is Eastern Europe, after all. There will also be new multiplayer scenarios set on the new terrain, and free bonus content for all players including NATO woodland camouflage, civilian clothing, and more than 100 props and terrain objects.  Encountering aliens in the world's most popular military sim is unexpected, but as van ‘t Land said, Arma 3 is not a straight-up shooter: The Laws of War DLC released in 2017 set players up as members of a non-combat NGO and focused on the consequences of warfare rather than the combat itself. Sales of that DLC raised nearly $177,000 for the ICRC. A...
What if humanity suddenly encounters extraterrestrial intelligence on Earth? https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/2799889/821200a203d6e92a55c795f575c94ab078b69b58.png We're excited to present: Arma 3 Contact – a spin-off expansion about the most important discovery in the history of mankind. Scheduled for release on July 25, Arma 3 Contact features a military science fiction singleplayer campaign, which will arrive together with a fresh new sandbox terrain, factions, weapons, vehicles, gear, and more. https://youtu.be/ds7RoCrhUyk https://store.steampowered.com/app/1021790 In the “First Contact” singleplayer campaign, you'll assume the role of NATO drone operator Aiden Rudwell, who is deployed to Eastern Europe as part of a military training exercise. When a massive alien vessel suddenly enters the atmosphere, you're sent to investigate the extraterrestrial visitors and determine their intentions. However, amid the tension and chaos, armed conflict inevitably unfolds. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/2799889/a9ffe6e9e0b33596c396a3bf0853f81ccdf50e2b.png Besides its story-driven campaign, the Contact expansion also brings various additions to the greater Arma 3 sandbox. One highlight is the massive new 163 km2 terrain set in the fictional Polish-speaking country of Livonia. With this new locale come two smaller yet capable fighting forces: Livonian Defense Force and Russian Spetsnaz. Furthermore, the expansion packs 5 additional weapons, 2 new vehicles plus variants, extra gear, a wide variety of decorative objects, and more. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/2799889/cce33b6b0944d0b398add87b9e00cb95df817baf.png Arma 3 Contact is scheduled for release on July 25 and will be distributed as DLC for Arma 3 on Steam. You can now pre-purchase the expansion on Steam with a temporary 10% discount. Also, if you pre-order, you'll gain Sneak Preview Access to the new Livonia terrain as of today.

There was some confusion last fall when gaming site CentrumHer revealed that Arma 4 is in development. It arose from the fact that Arma 4, as far as anyone knows, is not in development at all. What was actually happening, PR manager Korneel van 't Land explained, was an "Arma 3 Creator Bootcamp" for potential third-party Arma 3 DLC creators. Bohemia Interactive has "concrete plans for a significant amount of support for Arma 3 through a combination of official new content and hopefully third-party DLC content in at least the coming year," van 't Land said, and this was a way to get those creators up to speed. The first of those Arma 3 Creator DLC releases, by developer Vertexmacht, is now available, and it's a literal blast from the past: Global Mobilization – Cold War Germany returns to the 1980s with West and East German forces squaring off on a massive map in northern Germany. The DLC includes 42 vehicles and variants, 21 weapons and variants, 17 multiplayer scenarios, and a singleplayer campaign with ten missions.  "With Creator DLC such as Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany, Bohemia Interactive aims to provide more original quality content to Arma 3 players, create an opportunity for outside talent to earn a financial reward, while also making it possible to invest more into the Arma series' long-term future," Bohemia said. Details on the program, if you're interested in trying your hand at content creation or just curious what it's all about, are available on the Arma 3 Creator DLC page, and in this update from earlier in April.   The Cold War Germany DLC is the latest example of Bohemia's longstanding commitment to modders and to Arma being a platform for other people's work. At the end of 2013, the company's "Make Arma Not War" competition awarded €500,000 to creators. One of the winners? A then-unknown PlayerUnknown. Arma 3: Global Mobilization – Cold War Germany goes for $23/£17/€20 on Steam or through the Bohemia Store, and is available for ten percent off those prices until May 6. The base price of Arma 3 has been permanently reduced as well, to $30/£24/€28, and previously released DLC has also been marked down.

Fight on an all-new 419 km² terrain with 42 new vehicles and vehicle variants, 21 new weapons including variants, and a ton of additional character assets. The DLC also features a 10-mission singleplayer campaign and 17 co-operative/competitive multiplayer scenarios. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/2799889/9b868cce122a1e14e0dac3a518ed1a63c898d97c.png Today's release is extra special because it is the first Arma 3 Creator DLC. This means it's made by a third-party developer (Vertexmacht) and published by Bohemia Interactive. In case you'd like to know more about our Creator DLC initiative, then be sure to read the latest Arma 3 blog post, and take a look at our answers to some of the most Frequently Asked Questions. https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/steamcommunity/public/images/clans/2799889/16a5b0c9525634c669886de3ac17bdad2e412a79.png The Global Mobilization Creator DLC is now available on Steam with a 10% early bird discount this entire week. Meet you on Weferlingen - Auf Wiedersehen! https://store.steampowered.com/app/1042220 P.S.

FROM: High Command TO: Arma 3 Users UNIT: Main Branch (Windows) ACTIVITY: Game Update 1.92 (Launcher DLC Section, Dynamic Weapon Magazines) SIZE: ~1.3 GB / ~186 MB More in the full changelog and SPOTREP
Arma 3's first paid-for, third-party DLC will be out tomorrow, and it will offer a 10-mission singleplayer campaign, 17 multiplayer scenarios and more than 40 new vehicles and vehicle variants across its 1980s Cold War Germany map. The DLC, called Global Mobilization - Cold War Germany, features 419 square kilometers of terrain in both sunny summer and snowy winter variants, making it the largest Arma terrain to date. As well as the campaign, multiplayer scenarios and usual Arma 3 sandbox gameplay, the DLC will introduce 42 new vehicles and vehicle variants, 21 new weapons including variants, and new character assets. The campaign focuses on the battle over the inner German border from two perspectives: a private in the West German army and the leader of a tank platoon. The 17 multiplayer scenarios comprise 13 co-op scenarios and four competitive game modes, including a deathmatch called "Fashion Police", in which teams "can quickly change based on the clothing you wear". As well as West and East German armies, the DLC features troops from Denmark, who will provide a "smaller but viable military faction". Bohemia insists that third-party DLC, announced last year, is not simply "paid mods". In an FAQ it says: "We believe that these DLC packs would not have otherwise existed or be possible as mods of similar quality and scope". Third-party DLC "will never replace something that was available for free", it says. I'd say it at least has a leg to stand on here—all third-party DLC must be a new project pitched to and approved by Bohemia, which provides "continuous feedback, assists with the Quality Assurance (testing) process, and offers legal, mastering, publishing, and promotional support" throughout development. The two-person team behind Global Mobilization are called Vertexmacht. One of the developers is an animation lead at Bohemia Interactive Simulations, a separate entity to Bohemia Interactive, which is why this still counts as third-party DLC. You can read an interview with both developers here. Bohemia haven't yet announced a price for the DLC. The Steam page is here, while the Bohemia Store page is here.

You'll have 3 minutes to collect as many eggs as you can. The top 3 players are given special eggs as a reward. These eggs can be cracked open for various types of loot ranging from scrap all the way up to an M249! If you don't make the podium, that's okay. The painted eggs you collect can be upgraded to Bronze eggs once you collect 10. If you collect 10 bronze eggs then you can upgrade to a silver egg, eventually all the way to gold! There are various items available to help you during your hunt. The Easter Basket will allow instant pickup of eggs and the Bunny Onsie and Ears will provide you an advantage via Egg Vision. I hope you guys enjoy playing this minigame as much as we enjoyed getting it ready for you. Have fun!
