Arma 3 Beta now live
Today marks the release of the Arma 3 Beta, as developer Bohemia Interactive has combined the playable content from the game’s Alpha, which together includes, the 20 km² island of Stratis, 20 weapons, 18 vehicles, 3 factions, 8 showcase missions, 4 multiplayer scenarios, 4 challenges, the scenario editor and modding support.
“The Beta is a big opportunity for us to involve more players in Arma 3’s development and is the next step along the road towards our full release. With a variety of new singleplayer and multiplayer scenarios and a whole bunch of new sandbox content, we’re looking forward to introducing players to what true combined arms combat really means in Arma 3,” said creative director Jay Crowe.
People who participated in the Arma 3 Alpha will gain access to the Arma 3 Beta by downloading the automatic update on Steam, while those who are new to the game can purchase the Beta (which of course includes the full game upon its release) via Steam or at Store.bistudio.com.
