First Arma 3 campaign chapter released with trailer

Bohemia Interactive has released the first chapter of Arma 3's campaign as free DLC.

Titled 'Survive', it sees players stepping into the boots of Ben Kerry, a soldier on a NATO peacekeeping mission in the Mediterranean.

"Following a couple of years of uneasy cease-fire, this US-led deployment is now in the process of a staged drawdown," says Arma 3 creative director Jay Crowe. "The vacuum left by withdrawing forces is being rapidly filled by the opposing CSAT faction, creating the conditions for, one might say, a flashpoint."

The DLC not only introduces the game's campaign component but also "more building blocks for the platform - new weapons, animations, 3D objects, scripted modules - each designed to grant content creators even greater freedom to create and share their own content", according to Crowe.

In August, Bohemia announced that Arma 3 would launch in September without its single player campaign, which is set to be released across three free DLC episodes.
