Bohemia Interactive today released the second episode of the official campaign for Arma 3. In the new episode, titled ‘Adapt’, players take on the role of Ben Kerry, a soldier trapped on the island of Altis following a Mediterranean flashpoint.
While the first part of the campaign introduced players to Arma 3’s basic infantry combat and story, episode two opens up the military sandbox further, challenging players to adopt guerrilla tactics in the face of against a stronger, better-equipped enemy. The Adapt episode is made available to people via an automatic update on Steam
“Episode One helped players get to grips with the basic skills needed to survive”, said Jay Crowe, Creative Director on Arma 3. “Episode Two introduces a whole new set of challenges, giving players more freedom and responsibility in the wide, open terrain of Altis.”
The official campaign for Arma 3, named ‘The East Wind’, consists of three episodes: ‘Survive’, ‘Adapt’, ‘Win’. The first campaign episode, ‘Survive’, was deployed in October 2013, followed by the second ‘Adapt’ episode today. The third and final campaign episode, ‘Win’, is scheduled for March 2014.
