Bohemia Interactive has announced the official worldwide release date for Arma 3.
The game will be available both digitally and in retail stores from September 12, 2013. The developer announced earlier this week that it will ship without its single-player campaign–it will be added via three free DLC releases shortly after launch.
“As game creators, we love developing and playing through campaigns so, to those awaiting ours, we say: sorry for the delay. After talking a lot about a focus on quality over the last year, it simply did not feel right to compromise now. Rather than pushing back the entire game, we launch this year with an awesome package – a splendid kick-off for the Arma 3 experience,” project lead Joris-Jan Van ‘t Land said of the decision not to include the campaign at launch.
