Arma 3 Free Weekend

Bohemia Interactive have launched a Free Weekend on Steam for tactical military shooter Arma 3, accompanied by a Publisher Weekend Sale offering discounts up to 80% on titles such as Arma 2, Arma Tactics, and Take On Helicopters.

The studio’s Early Access titles are also included in the sale, with a 15% discount on popular zombie survival game DayZ. Also available is a 33% discount on Take On Mars – the space exploration game in which players start out as a Rover operator and finish by establishing the first human colony on Mars, alone or together with their friends in multiplayer.


Throughout the weekend, from May 7th up until May 10th, all Steam users are able to play Arma 3 for free, with access to all content except for the second and third campaign episode. Arma 3 features a wide variety of single- and multiplayer content, over 20 vehicles and 40 weapons. Gameplay includes the singleplayer campaign, VR training courses and official and unofficial multiplayer modes. The game also offers the Scenario Editor, which fans of the series will be accustomed to.

In celebration of the Free Weekend, and to introduce Arma 3’s brand new multiplayer mode, End Game – which was recently released in a free platform update, the Arma 3 devteam will be hosting a special livestream on their Twitch channel. The session will be streamed live from Bohemia Interactive HQ onto the official Arma 3 Twitch channel.

The Arma series is as serious as it gets in the shooter genre, so Arma 3 is well worth a play over the weekend to dip your feet in to the strategic battles Bohemia have to offer.
