Arma 3 Jets DLC Adds New Fighter Planes, Achievements and More

Four years after its initial release, Bohemia Interactive are releasing new downloadable content for ultra-realistic military simulator Arma 3.

Scheduled to be boots-on-the-ground (sorry) released this May, the Arma 3 Jets DLC is set to introduce three new fighter jets, a new Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV), a new Showcase scenario, Steam Achievements, and more.

Bohemia’s  Creative Director Jay Crowe had this to say about their journey so far:

“It’s become something of a yearly tradition to share our plans for Arma 3 via a quick retrospective of progress, and a look ahead at the work in front of us. Although 2017’s no exception – it’s once again our pleasure to present our development, with a particular focus on the upcoming Jets DLC – this year is extra special, as we celebrate passing the 3 million milestone for the Arma 3 playerbase.”

The Jets DLC will go hand-in-hand with the upcoming free DLC pack called Malden which, when released in June, reintroduces a remastered map from the first Arma game.

More DLC packs are to be released throughout the year, such as the Arma 3 “Orange” DLC (working title) (est. Q3 2017), which will be announced at a later date. This upcoming new package will explore an interesting and unique perspective on the battlefield. The Arma 3 “Orange” DLC will include new vehicles, new clothing and gear, new decorative objects, a mini-campaign, Showcase and Challenge scenarios, and more. In terms of size, the “Orange DLC” stands somewhere in between the Arma 3 Karts and Arma 3 Helicopters/Marksmen/Jets/Tanks DLC.

The Arma 3 Tac-Ops DLC (est. Q4 2017) will deliver a set of ‘tactical operations’. These single-player scenarios will focus upon challenging, replayable, and authentic military gameplay – making the best use of Arma 3′s sandbox terrain, vehicles, and weapons.

The Arma 3 Tanks DLC (est. Q1 2018) will build on the experience of armored combat in Arma 3 by delivering three new armored vehicles, new playable content, and more. The package will be accompanied by a free platform update which will implement new features and improvements related to tracked and armored vehicles.
