INFO: Encore Update Dev-Branching, Units Status
We're currently preparing the final snapshot of the upcoming Encore Update (version 1.84). If everything goes according to plan, we'd expect to open up the Release Candidate branch of version 1.84 later this week.
Last month we introduced our development roadmap for Arma 3 in 2018. Having released Tanks DLC in April, our next significant milestone will be the Encore Update. As is usual, we've already made many of its free new additions and improvements available to Dev-Branch players last week. That way those who are interested can help us test the latest goodies, while content creators can slowly begin to prepare their projects for the changes if needed. To introduce the new ship, SAM, radar, missile, and bomb assets, John K. Noviks from BRAVO ZERO ONE Studios - the co-creators of Arma 3 Jets DLC - wrote a fresh new OPREP to discuss all the ins and outs. For example, did you already know that AI can safely land (for the most part at least) on the USS Liberty's helipad? Or that you can place a boat rack to lift up boats onto the ship bays? Learn more about all of the new assets and the motivations for why they were selected on the Arma 3 Dev Hub!
