Just a little heads up that Bohemia Interactive has released Zeus, the free DLC pack for ArmA 3 it announced way back in February.

In case you’ve forgotten all about it in the interim – I had – Zeus puts one player in the role of Game Master, allowing them to create objectives, spawn units and guide other players – all in real-time, using a new editor.

What this means is the adventures you’ll face as a player are almost guaranteed to surprise you, which should make it a little more challenging as you improvise and adapt your tactics.

Zeus works in traditional modes like co-op, team death match and sector control as well as the all enw Game Master mode, which starts off with a “blank canvas”. It also works with custom scenarios, because Bohemia is the best.

Just played some now. Was terrible on a pub server because the GM couldn’t be trusted, so we went on our private server and did some testing. Very cool. Much like VTS/MCC but with 10x as much lightning.

 

Sounds like a great idea. With the right GM and the right group of PCs this could really turn into a great roleplaying experience without all those “messy” stats.
