Arma 3's second campaign episode due next month, more content coming next week

Arma 3 is a bit good, as opined in greater detail in our review. But it's also a bit lacking in campaign content, for the time being at least. Thankfully, things will change for the better when the second of the game's three campaign episodes releases next month - on January 21st to be exact. Following on from the first part, 'Survive', Adapt will feature "more open and unorthodox scenarios" and a "much stronger enemy", which must be a nice thing to hear if you've dedicated your life to enemyhood. If you can't wait till January and you want to play with Adapt's new toys now, however, Bohemia have you covered: on December 11th, its new weapons and vehicles will automagically be downloaded to your game folder via Steam. More details below.

That content includes new vehicles for the Altis Armed Forces: the Wy-55 Hellcat helicopter, the FV-720 Mora and the MBT-52 tank. You'll also get infra-red grenades, black versions of the MX rifles, and an LRPS sniper scope. I hope you understood some or all of that sentence, because militaryspeak is all Greek to me.

Together, the three campaign episodes - 'Survive', 'Adapt' and 'Win' - form The East Wind, Arma 3's free (if you own the game) episodic campaign. The third part hasn't yet been given a date.
