Bohemia Interactive Reveals Zeus DLC for Arma 3
Own the game.
Bohemia Interactive’s hyper realistic military sim, Arma 3, got released last year, and since then it has gotten a wealth of content released for it as post release support. And now, the company has announced new DLC for the game.
Titled ‘Zeus,’ it is the first in the planned series of free DLC for the title. It introduces a new form of asymmetric multiplayer gameplay, in which players can take on the role of Game Master and curate the online battles of other players.
This new kind of multiplayer mode works within existing Arma 3 multiplayer modes as well, such as Team Deathmatch. However, the concept really truly comes into its own with Zeus Game Master, in which Game Masters are entirely free to create objectives, spawn units, and steer players across Arma 3’s massive Altis and Stratis terrains.
“The best thing about Arma 3 Zeus is how naturally it fits within the game. Dynamic combat, massive islands, and editing features – it was all there. But now we’ve added an interface which gives players full control over the multiplayer experience”, said Zeus’ Design Lead Karel Moricky. “The Zeus system is pretty modular too, so community creators can easily use it in their missions. Or take it apart and turn into something completely different. There are no rules, only those you make yourself.”
