Arma 3‘s single-player campaign has been MIA since the beginning of its battalion’s sortie, but NAG HQ can now confirm that we’ve received multiple confirmed sightings of the target and are now closing in. Tango Foxtrot Orange Mango Groove, out.
The first campaign episode out of three, “Survive”, was made available for free to all Arma 3 owners on the 31st October. To provide further mission support, Bohemia Interactive have released an accompanying trailer, which alternates between faux news reports about the troubled little paradises of Altis and Stratis and rather prosaic game footage of men running around in unremarkable but vast open terrain. I’m not going to lie, maybe some men also get shot. Just saying.
Says Bohemia on the campaign: “Players take on the role of Ben Kerry, a soldier who’s a part of the NATO peacekeeping operation in the Mediterranean. Five years after the bloody civil war in the Republic of Altis & Stratis came to an end, NATO has started to withdraw its forces from the region – unknowingly creating the conditions for a Mediterranean flashpoint. Kerry’s unit, “Task Force Aegis” — together with a clandestine group of UKSF operators – is soon caught up in a situation beyond their control, and trapped in a fight for survival.”
