‘Survive’, the first of ArmA 3‘s three-part campaign release, has been launched on Steam.

It’s a free update in which you play Ben Kerry, a NATO peacekeeping soldier in the Mediterranean, and who is “soon caught up in a situation beyond their control, and trapped in a fight for survival,” say Bohemia. Take a look at the trailer below:

CANNOT WAIT!

CANNOT WAIT!

You haven’t played a single ArmA campaign, have you?

Well, ArmA 1 wasn’t that bad, but boy are the sequel campaigns bad.

no no no, mellie is the one that has played them all

I’m the one that hasnt played a single campaign in the 10+ years of arma games

:)

 

No co-op that I can see, which is a shame. Had a brilliant time playing previous ones with friends.

You’ll be happy to know they’ve gone back to basics on the campaign so far, most of the missions are fairly simple and reminiscent Operation Flashpoint with a sprinkling of Resistance.

I’m enjoying it quite a bit, outside of a few AI hiccups.

 

Yeah, I’ve heard from a few people that the SP campaign is *much* better in this one than it was in all the previous Arma games*. Downloading it now, can’t wait!

* I actually thought the campaigns in the other Arma games werent that bad actually. Sure the voice acting and story weren’t AAA quality, but other than that it was fine. There were apparently some major bugs that broke it for some, but I never experienced anything game breaking or serious enough to need me to reload and play the mission again. Perhaps I’ve just been really lucky?

Either way BIS constantly released patches that were meant to make it better and more stable, so I dont know why some people keep complaining and poo-poo it all the time.

Take it for what it is, an indie military simulation, not a AAA Call of Duty clone and you’ll appreciate it alot more :)

 

namecaf,

Some of them were fun, but between the game-breaking bugs (more prevalent on ArmA1) and having to trek across THE ENTIRE MAP in ArmA 2 just for 1 mission just killed it for me.

Operation Arrowhead was especially prone to game-breaking bugs for me.

 

I perfer the operation flashpoint campaigns better. Arma and operation flashpoint used to be the same series.

 

Heh, Mellie doesn’t do anything in his life except for playing games, so of course he’s played the ArmA campaigns..

Also, the ArmA campaigns don’t compare to the Operation Flashpoint campaigns at all, which is weird given it’s the same developer.
