Prague, Czech Republic, Thursday 14th March 2013
While the Arma 3? Alpha leads Steam’s Top Sellers chart since launch,
Bohemia Interactive today also made a free invite-only variant
available. The Arma 3 Alpha Lite is a limited version of the Arma 3
Alpha – providing people with the opportunity to try out the
singleplayer showcase missions, a selection of weapons and vehicles, and
the scenario editor.
Unlike the regular Arma 3 Alpha, the Arma 3 Alpha Lite does not
feature a multiplayer component or modding support, and does not include
access to the Arma 3 Beta and complete game later on.
To participate in the Alpha Lite, people need to be invited by those who
have purchased the regular Arma 3 Alpha. The Arma 3 Alpha Lite will be
discontinued on June 18th, 2013.
Upgrading to the complete Arma 3 Alpha can be done by purchasing the
Arma 3 Alpha (24.99 EUR/19.99 GBP/32.99 USD) or Arma 3 Digital Deluxe
Edition (39.99 EUR/34.99 GBP/49.99 USD) on Steam.
Extras in the Digital Deluxe Edition include a digital soundtrack*,
digital maps*, digital tactical guide*, and a Steam Gift of Arma: Cold
War Assault (formerly known as Operation Flashpoint?: Cold War Crisis).
Both versions provide access to the Arma 3 Beta plus a digital version
of the complete game upon release. The price of each edition will
increase once the Arma 3 Beta and final game become available.
Those who would like to sponsor development further also have the option
to purchase the Arma 3 Supporter Edition (69.99 EUR/59.99 GBP/91.99
USD) from Store.bistudio.com.
Besides the additional Arma development support, this edition ships
with all the extras from the digital deluxe edition, plus
Supporter-exclusive rewards like a Steam Gift of Arma X, all future Arma
3 DLCs and a special forums medal. The full overview of editions, and their conditions, can be found on the official Arma 3 website.
*Available upon release of the full and final game.
