Bohemia Interactive has just released the Apex expansion for Arma 3. This expansion features new terrain, armed forces, weapons, vehicles, co-op campaign, and more.
Here are the key features of Arma 3 Apex:
- New terrain
The 100 km² South Pacific island archipelago Tanoa, containing varied locations ranging from rainforest jungles, cities, shanty towns, a sugar cane factory, a mine, an industrial port, a volcano , and more.
- New armed forces
A new faction of local Tanoan criminals and ex-paramilitaries called Syndikat, NATO & CSAT special forces, Pacific expeditionary units, and the Gendarmerie local law enforcement agency.
- 13 new weapons
A mix of classic and modern firearms, thermal-masking uniforms and headgear, backpacks, NVGs, and a weapon optic.
- 10 new vehicles
New vehicle classes: VTOL aircraft and Light Strike Vehicles – and more new vehicles such as the UCAV drones, RHIB, 4WD Offroad Car, Propeller Plane, and Water Scooter.
- Co-op campaign
Take on the role of a NATO CTRG special operator in the 1-4 player “Apex Protocol” co-op campaign. Connected to the events in the original Arma 3 “The East Wind” campaign, the co-op campaign consists of 7 highly replayable missions, featuring a drop-in/drop-out multiplayer structure, and the difficulty scales up or down based on the number of players.
- Additional Apex content
A selection of existing Arma 3 weapons and vehicles repainted in a South Pacific camo pattern, new character appearances: Tanoan and Chinese, new radio protocols: French, French-English, and Chinese, new environment assets and props for content creators, a Tanoa Zeus Game Master scenario, 3 new End Game scenarios, 13 new Steam Achievements, and the Arma 3 Apex official soundtrack.
Arma 3’s Creative Director, Jay Crowe, said:
“With Arma 3 Apex, there’s never been a better time to get into the series. Built upon a diverse, open platform, the expansion offers up a multiplayer-focused set of content, complimented by some great new additions to our arsenal, all set in the truly splendid backdrop of Tanoa – a fresh experience of combat, and an exicting new sandbox for our dedicated community.”
Arma 3’s Project Lead, Petr Kolár, added:
“We’ve been focused on Arma 3 Apex for over two years, and it’s incredibly satisfying to finally see all of that hard work come together. Tanoa is without doubt one of the best terrains in the Arma series, providing an experience that we can only refer to as a “green hell”. Together with the new vehicles, weapons, uniforms, accessories, and of course the co-op campaign, we are certain this will keep players engaged in combat for a long time. I’m extremely proud of what the team has achieved. This really is the Apex in Arma 3’s development journey.”
