There's been lots of things happening behind the scenes over the past few weeks! Currently, we're moving full speed ahead to get some exciting new intel and content ready for you Soon™. In relation to this, internally we've now entered the Data Lock stage, which is one of the first steps towards the next Main Branch update. Aside from that, Bohemia Interactive is preparing for a visit to gamescom, where we will have our own booth manned by various developers.
The so-called "Orange DLC" (working title) is approaching its very final stages of development before making its public appearance. We can't wait to properly introduce it to you, which might or might not be much sooner than folks think. Before that, there's one thing we'd like to address. In one of the news articles on the Bohemia Interactive website in March, we announced the price of the "Orange DLC" as € 6.99 / $ 7.99 / £ 5.99. However, during its development, the "Orange" package grew beyond our initial expectations in terms of content and concept. For this reason, we decided that when the "Orange DLC" will first go on sale/pre-order, it will be priced the same as our other full-sized DLC, such as the recent Arma 3 Jets, at € 9.99 / $ 11.99 / £ 8.99. The price of the DLC Bundle 2, which was already on sale and includes the "Orange DLC", will not be changed. Effectively this means that people who have purchased or will purchase the DLC Bundle 2 will get more value for the same price. Although we cannot provide any more details just yet without spoiling the surprise, we can already say that this package will be a very interesting and worthwhile addition to the Arma 3 experience - and we hope you'll feel the same way after seeing the full incoming reveal announcement! Later, as with many other major additions to Arma 3, we'll also be publishing a developer diary video to introduce this project a little bit further. The filming of this has already begun, and we promise there will be no shortage of "splendids" from our Creative Director Jay Crowe!
