INFO: Encore Update, Updated Tools & Experimental Ports
Last Wednesday was another big one for us and our community thanks to the release of Arma 3's 81st platform update, also known as the Encore Update or Update 1.84. Since its release we've been collecting your feedback - and we'll try to respond to potential issues as quickly as possible.
The Encore Update, which brings the game version up to 1.84, has been deployed! Its highlights include the new "USS Liberty" destroyer-class ship, a Surface-to-Air Missile system and radar site for both the NATO and CSAT factions, as well as new anti-radiation missiles and a Small Diameter Bombs for fighter jets. This new content, which is free to all Arma 3 players, was created by third-party developer BRAVO ZERO ONE Studios (our co-developer on last year's Jets DLC) - and should let you enjoy even more diverse and immersive scenarios, while introducing more balanced options for ground-to-air combat and vice versa. As always, the update's changelog is available for inspection on the Arma 3 Dev Hub. Here you'll also find that a lot of Arma 3's official playable content, such as Showcase scenarios and campaign missions, received various improvements. All in all, we'd like to compliment B01 Studios on their splendid work, and we're certain this free bonus content will be very much appreciated by the Arma 3 community!
