Bohemia Interactive has broken up the campaign into three episodic DLCs which will arrive after launch of the military sim. The first is entitled Survive and will release within a month of Arma 3's launch.

The next episodes, Adapt and Win, will join the fray in the following months. At launch players have the island terrains of Altis (270 km2) and Stratis (20 km2), as well as 12 singleplayer missions.

Those are showcase missions, which are joined by 3 faction showcases, 9 multiplayer scenarios, 10 fire drill challenges and a powerful scenario editor for modders.

"Following an eventful past year, and a splendid reception of the Arma 3 Alpha and Beta, the studio honestly admits to the difficulties it experienced with its parallel development," said Bohemia. "While the team was developing the full game, at the same time it was supporting the Alpha and Beta."

"However, since the game has made tremendous progress as a result, Bohemia Interactive felt confident to maintain its quality-over-quantity mind-set and take some additional time to perfect the campaign."

"By releasing the expansive platform and adding the free campaign in 3 separate DLC episodes shortly thereafter, players (as well as mod-makers) will be able to get their hands on the full game as soon as possible, and take on the complete military package in Arma 3s massive sandbox."

The decision is explained further in a lengthy blog post on Bohemia Interactive's website. Arma 3 is available to purchase now in beta form from Steam or the Bohemia Store for €34.99 / £29.99 / $44.99.
