Arma 3 News & Announcements


It's time to return to the mid-Atlantic island of Everon — a 52km² microstate, which many of you will remember from Arma: Cold War Assault. This iconic terrain has been reimagined and faithfully restored, undoubtedly becoming our most photorealistic and beautiful environment to date. Thanks to new possibilities, made available through our next-gen Enfusion engine, we have recreated the jewel of the Malden Islands for a 1989 setting. So gear-up, set out, and explore! Take in the many sights and vistas. The glittering ocean bays, lakes, and rivers. The forests, hills and pastures, animated by the shadows of rolling clouds. There is so much to discover!

But what's an Arma game without conflict? Arma Reforger's Conflict game mode returns players to war. Join US or Soviet forces in a dynamic, multiplayer, team versus team scenario. Build support structures and defenses, oversee logistics, and capture key objectives by working together. To survive and overcome the enemy, you'll also have to rely on your wits and fieldcraft. Make no mistake, your map and compass will be every bit as important as the rifle in your hands.



In addition to this, Arma Reforger's playable content is supported with a real-time mission editor; Game Master. In this titular role, players can curate events, set tasks, and dynamically respond to other players on the battlefield, setting down challenges, compositions, and more. No combat encounter will be the same and if you're one of those in the midst of the action, you'll have to think fast to stay alive.

Last but not least, for our talented modding community, there's a lot of new tools available. In fact, we're sharing the very same technology used to make Arma Reforger — giving you an enormous amount of creative freedom. All these programs are collected on one site known as Workbench. Although only accessible to PC users, addons can be published on Arma Reforger's exclusive mod repository, the Workshop, for everyone, including console players, to enjoy!

And remember, all of this is just the beginning of the evolution of the Arma franchise. That being said, Arma 3 is and still will be supported – from events featuring community content to community live streams and more.

For more information on Arma Reforger, or if you have any questions, please visit our FAQ page page. If you want to download Workbench, check our DEV HUB.

Explore Bohemia Interactive’s webpages that present the past, present and future of Arma. Arma Platform congregates all the Arma titles, easy access to the games themselves and information. Arma Reforger addresses the latest installment in the Arma series. Arma 4 web will outline the upcoming title in the future.

April has arrived, and with it comes another Community Radar!

Dear community,

On March 2nd, we released a Charity Bundle featuring Arma 3 and Laws of War DLC.

This DLC was chosen as a reminder to adhere to the rules of war through the introduction of the principles of International Humanitarian Law (IHL). This includes the prevention of threats to civilian lives and infrastructure and the protection of humanitarian actions.

The Charity Bundle was initially scheduled to be available for two weeks. However, after those two weeks, we decided to extend the fundraiser period by another week, until the 23rd of March, so we could help more.

In three weeks, with the help and support of our community, we managed to raise an incredible $38,612 through the Charity Bundle. All of the net revenue will be sent to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) for the support of people affected by the war in Ukraine.

If you were unable to buy the bundle in time, and would still like to offer support, you can donate directly at https://www.icrc.org/en/donate/ukraine.

We would like to thank our community and everyone who bought the Charity Bundle!

We greatly appreciate your support and hope the war will have a peaceful resolution soon.

Dear community,

A horrific humanitarian crisis is unfolding in Ukraine. We at Bohemia Interactive have decided to create a special Arma 3 Charity Bundle to raise funds for the people that need it most. It will be available for the next 2 weeks. All of this bundle's net revenue will be donated to humanitarian aid charities like the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), in support of their assistance to people affected by the ongoing war.

Part of this bundle – Arma 3's Laws of War DLC – introduces the basic principles of International Humanitarian Law (IHL), which is as important as ever during this armed conflict. We urge respect for the rules of war, protection of humanitarian actions, and doing everything possible to avoid risk to civilian lives and infrastructure. Visit our portal for more information on IHL: https://arma3.com/ihl, and the official website of the ICRC for more info about donating directly: https://www.icrc.org/en/donate/ukraine.

We stand with the people of Ukraine and hope for a peaceful resolution soon.

Great news! Thanks to your support, we’ve been able to raise a significant amount of money for a good cause.



To be precise, Bohemia Interactive will donate 100% of their revenue after tax from the Arma 3 Art of War charity DLC to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). The total amount raised is $155,783 USD (approximately €138,330 EUR / £116,944 GBP).

Now that the fundraising period is over, the Art of War Charity Pack has been permanently made available for free to all Arma 3 players, just as it was announced when the DLC was released in February of this year.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1325500/Arma_3_Art_of_War_Charity_Pack/

The Art of War Charity Pack adds an in-game art exhibition to Arma 3, where visitors can see some of the best artwork and screenshots made by the Arma 3 community. The DLC also includes a new singleplayer combat scenario in which players are sent on a mission to recover valuable paintings stolen in a war zone. Other additions are a formal suit, parade uniform, new backpack, various t-shirts, and several props related to art galleries and memorials.

https://youtu.be/mjz6K5vypmk
Arma 3 Art of War was available for purchase on Steam for approximately 9 months. You could get the DLC for the standard price of 1.99 USD/EUR/GBP, or, those who wanted to donate more could buy it at the optional higher price tiers of 4.99 USD/EUR/GBP and 9.99 USD/EUR/GBP. All three purchase options included the same content. In the end, about 84.4% of people bought it at the standard price tier of 1.99 USD, 5.4% got it at the middle price tier of 4.99 USD, and 10.2% purchased the highest 9.99 USD price tier.

"We are very grateful to Bohemia Interactive and to all the players who made a donation to the ICRC. Our collaboration, over the years, is a strong example of the synergies that can be developed across communities, offline and online, and this donation will make a clear difference in the life of thousands of people,” said Marek Resich from the Resource Mobilization division at the ICRC.

The $155,783 donation will support the ICRC in their mission to ensure humanitarian protection and assistance for victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence. More information about the ICRC, their activities, and International Humanitarian Law is available on https://www.icrc.org.
