Although initially unveiled as an April Fools prank earlier this year, enough people have asked for it to be made a reality that Bohemia have caved in and released — yes — Arma 3 Karts, a DLC that replaces the serious military sim with go-kart racing.
“Enjoy this little sidestep in a typically military sandbox,” Bohemia note on the official site, while explaining that “A portion of the proceeds from the sales of the Arma 3 Karts DLC will be donated to the Czech Red Cross.” You can buy Karts here for $1.99.
The new Karts DLC is designed to help test Bohemia’s plan for releasing ArmA 3 content without fracturing the community. Their model will revolve around a generous try-before-you-buy system that will enable you to play with DLC even without buying it. Read more details on that here.
