Arma 3′s Zeus DLC lets you become a game master

Bohemia Interactive has announced a new piece of DLC for Arma 3 titled Zeus that allows players to become a game master, offering the chance to manipulate online battles.

Whoever is game master will watch the action from a bird’s-eye view and can create new obstacles, steer players in a certain direction, spawn enemies, create new challenges, and more thanks to a real-time editor.

“Assume the role of game master and curate the experience of other Arma 3 players. Wielding an intuitive real-time editor, you can manipulate or expand multiplayer scenarios on-the-fly, and create a surprising flow of challenges for the soldiers on the ground,” the developer explains.

“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.”

Arma 3: Zeus will release in the second quarter of this year as a free download.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
