Today, Bohemia Interactive announced rather than delaying Arma 3 they will release the campaign in three free episodes after launch.
Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, Project Lead of the open world shooter, explained the decision.
As game creators, we love developing and playing through campaigns so, to those awaiting ours, we say: sorry for the delay. After talking a lot about a focus on quality over the last year, it simply did not feel right to compromise now. Rather than pushing back the entire game, we launch this year with an awesome package – a splendid kick off for the Arma 3 experience.
The first episode, Survive, is scheduled to be released a month after launch. Don’t worry though, Arma 3 will still come with 12 singleplayer missions, nine multiplayer scenarios, and three faction showcases.
Arma 3 is due to arrive for PC later this year.
