By on June 13, 2013 at 6:08 pm

Bohemia Interactive have announced that ArmA 3‘s alpha will end on June 25, when the official beta testing period will begin.

The beta will include new arsenals, new vehicles, and new scenarios including co-op and multi-team, wave-based defense scenarios.

A third faction will also be added, an “Independent” faction made up of a military native to Altis and Stratis islands.

All this and more come June 25 — or if you’d can’t wait any longer, why not read our beta impressions, direct from the E3 show floor?

3rd faction? meaning 3 ways fights?

I’ve never played AmmA but a 3 way battle does sound interesting.

It can be that way if you want it to, blufor and opfor are enemies by default, however the alliance status of the independent faction can be configured as friendly or hostile to blufor or opfor (or both) in the editor, actually, it’s been this way since Operation Flashpoint with the resistance faction.

BIS also showed off a new coop mission they’ll be adding where a team of blufor and independents (greens) hold off an attack by AI opponents until a chopper arrives, however the chopper only has enough seats for one of the teams so if there are too many survivors it transitions from PvE gameplay to PvP right at the end.
