ARMA 3 — это новый виток в жанре тактических военных симуляторов от независимой студии Bohemia Interactive, создателей нашумевшей Operation Flashpoint. ARMA 3 впитала в себя все самое лучшее из предыдущих игр серии и привнесла множество инноваций. Новый физический движок позволит игроку с невиданной ранее реалистичностью управлять боевыми действиями. Новая модель поведения техники, широчайший спектр оружия, от уже ставших классическими M16 и AK74 до прототипов, еще не поступивших в широкое пользование, а так же долгожданная фанатами серии возможность плавать под водой. После нескольких лет изнурительной войны, Европа стала последним пристанищем ослабленных в боях сил НАТО. Остров Стратис захвачен противником с ближнего Востока и его завоевание даст гарантированное превосходство НАТО в данном регионе. Началась операция «Магнитуда»: небольшая группа специально подготовленных солдат вместе с учеными под прикрытием отправляются на остров в Средиземном море. Миссия под угрозой краха! Команда практически полностью уничтожена, а главного героя, капитана Скотта Миллера, выбрасывает на берег вражеского острова. Завершить операцию в его силах, но на его пути встают все опасности современных военных действий, безжалостная окружающая среда и численное превосходство врага. Обдумывать придется каждый шаг!
* Новый игровой движок позволяет управлять боевыми действиями с невиданной ранее реалистичностью. * Теперь появилась возможность погружаться под воду! * Разнообразие вооружений — от «классических» АК-74 и М-16 до еще не вышедших в серийное производство прототипов. * Объединив все положительные качества предшественников, с эволюционно новым движком и возможностями, ARMA 3 предоставляет игроку ни с чем не сравнимый опыт тактического боя. * Создавайте собственные игровые сценарии, используя простой и интуитивно понятный редактор миссий.

- Motivation: These classes were not used by default soldier load-outs and we deemed them unnecessary. Some of them used wrong optics for the given side of the weapon, some didn't make any sense. We would like to encourage adding different weapons rather via scripting and specific add-ons to them than having bazillions of pre-defined guns few people are likely to use and we cannot maintain quality control on them all.
- Motivation: Weapon class names have been unified across the whole scale of weapons to be more consistent with the rest of game. There is no need to differentiate ACO colors in the class name of the weapon because each weapon is given only to specific side which use some color of ACO.
- Motivation: We decided to change class names of vehicles to more generic ones to support possible renaming (as it may be seen on some assets) and easier mission scripting. It should be easier for mission maker to simply add a MRAP by describing it in class name rather to remember all the names of assets.

AI snipers with GM6 should attack from greater distances. * Fixed: Hellcat hitpoints. * Fixed: An issue with animations getting stuck when using a medikit with a handgun. * Fixed: An issue with standing up when trying to strafe in fast prone. * Added: New helmet camouflages. * Adjusted: Carbine rifles distribution. * Added: BIS_fnc_bleedTickets - system which will decrease amount of side respawn tickets based on sector dominance. * Added: BIS_fnc_counter now supports multiple name spaces. * Added: Executing call bis_fnc_respawnTickets will now return an array containing side with the lowest number of tickets and their value. * Fixed: Glasses were not recognized correctly (http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=16574). * Added: BIS_fnc_sortAlphabetically - a function to sort an array of strings alphabetically. * Fixed: BIS_fnc_dirTo returns negative value in some situations (http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=16556). * Added: Corresponding AA and AT static launcher backpacks for every respective faction.(http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=16520). * Fixed: A typo in Industry Standard preset and cleared some redundant entries. * Fixed: AI disembarking from WY-55 Hellcat sometimes breaks main rotor. * Radio Protocol: preview samples used in profile editor now include all speakers for each voice type. * Fixed: Missing classes of the Altian Radio Protocol. * Roadways of small chapels have been tweaked. * Added: Empty ORBAT sizes. * Fixed: KIA cargo pose of Hellcat crew. * Fixed: Some situations in which credits would not execute. * Fixed: An error that appeared when changing mission parameters during hosting a multiplayer game. * Added: colorFocused and colorBackgroundFocused parameters for setting colors of focused RscShortcutButton. * Fixed: Support calls should now be globally limited instead of per player in Defend Kamino MP mission. * Fixed: A flying H-barrier in the AA outpost has been grounded. * Fixed: Bugged left sleeve of FIA soldier model. * Added: BIS_fnc_fixDate - checks and ev. fixes the date and time, when it goes out of the boundaries. * Added: BIS_fnc_isLeapYear - returns true if given year is leap year. * Added: BIS_fnc_monthDays - returns number of days in given month. * Fixed: An issue where NVGs could remain on during cutscenes. * Fixed: CSAT Grenadier now has correct helmet. * Tweaked: Effects of suppressors on bullets. * Tweaked: Underwater ammo speed and damage. * Function BIS_fnc_setToPairs now has a correct example.
* Added new functions to control the stacking of disabled save games: - Modified BIS_fnc_cinemaBorder and BIS_fnc_quotations to support stacking of disabled save games. - Modified all “Survive” missions to support new stacked handling of disabled saving.
* Continued work upon soldier protection: - Slightly decreased collateral resistance of OPFOR soldiers’ extremities. - Decreased OPFOR advanced uniform protectiveness of extremities for it was too powerful. Still, it protects comparatively better than other uniforms. - Set up specific protection values for BLUFOR Helipilot and Pilot coveralls. It will not save you much more than the standard uniform, but there is a certain difference. - Set up proper protection values for OPFOR Officer uniform. - Range-master belt, bandoleer and chest-rig armor values set to zero (serving as just equipment holders). - Tweaked helmet protection levels. - Minor tweaks in ammunition, precise adjusting of minimalHitRange values, damage scaling rounds up, pistol ammunition damage adjustments and grenade tweaks. - Adjusted explosives to maintain the protection of grenadier vests against explosives and grenades. - Minor changes in soldier equipment due to changes in headgear. Purpose of classes is not affected in any meaningful manner. - Impacts of bullets cause soldiers to ragdoll a bit (flinch) even if they are fully absorbed by armor. - Decreased overall helmet protection values to increase significance of head-shots and general lethality of damage to the head. - Increased density of soldiers’ bodies to improve headshot lethality. - Because of the previous change it was also necessary to halve the explosion shielding of head hitpoint in general to maintain helmet protection levels for collateral indirect damage and explosions. - Fixed HE grenade from underbarrel GL weapon to match his RGO Frag grenade counterpart. - Elevated OPFOR collateral protection for hands and legs for the previous values were not sufficient to create meaningful difference between OPFOR and soldiers of other factions.

Эпизод познакомит нас с солдатом регулярной армии US Беном Керри, который участвует в составе миротворческой миссии НАТО в средиземноморском регионе, откуда выводятся войска. На месте сразу начинают действовать экстремистские группировки CSAT, разжигающие конфликт на уже мирной территории. Вместе с бесплатным дополнением в игру добавят новые виды оружия и техники.
Действие второго эпизода разворачивается сразу после окончания событий Survive – первого эпизода. История солдата Бена Керри, оказавшегося в ловушке на острове Алтис в результате Средиземноморского конфликта продолжится.
