Even after almost 7 years since its launch, Arma 3 is still getting better and better.
The game has just received a brand new single-player campaign or a scenario as the devs call it. This campaign comes as a free bonus content. If you already own the Arma 3 Apex expansion, you’ll be able to download this new update right now and jump right in.
The story of the new campaign is somewhat familiar to the recent CoronaVirus situation.
Much like most other Arma 3 expansions, this one also takes place in an open-world and lets you explore and find your way around on your own. Apparently, it features 10-hours worth of content. Not too bad for a free update.
Check out the launch trailer and the plot details for more info.
In Arma 3 Apex: Old Man, the player assumes the role of a retired Legionnaire living on the South Pacific island of Tanoa. When a new strain of malaria causes yet another humanitarian crisis, and local authorities fail to distribute an effective vaccine to the civilian population, “Old Man” is tipped off about a possible plot. Together with a former military contact, he attempts to avert a catastrophic power play in the region.
The new scenario drops the player into Tanoa’s 100 square kilometers tropical terrain with just a few instructions. It’s up to the player to find their way around, gather intel, obtain weapons and equipment, and decide on the best tactics to accomplish objectives. While the scenario aims to offer an authentic experience, the player does have access to a few convenience features, such as the option to wait and skip time, and the ability to fast travel between known safe houses.
Arma 3 Apex: Old Man is now available to download on Steam.
