ARMA III Sale and Eden Editor Details

arma3-edeneditor-sneakpreview-livestream-1For the rest of this week, Bohemia Interactive has sliced the price of all the ArmA 3 editions by 50% and 35% respectively.

The ArmA 3 Extended Edition is 50% off ($37.49 USD) and contains the soundtrack, tactical maps of Altis and Stratis, a tactical guide with over 350 pages of information, ArmA: Cold War Assault, plus all the currently released DLC (Karts, Helicopters, Marksmen).

The base game is 35% off (38.99 USD) as is the Digital Deluxe edition of the game ($42.24). The Digital Deluxe version contains everything except the ArmA 3 DLC – so, there’s really no reason to pick up anything other than the Extended Edition, as it has everything you can get.

Eden 3D Editor

As promised, Bohemia Interactive unveiled the new Eden 3D editor today, as well as giving players’ access to the Eden Beta on the Dev branch for ArmA 3. The editor, which looks similar to the Zeus editor, will have some of the 2D editor’s abilities packed into it, along with all the other shiny new features Eden brings to the table.

  • Crew icons now appear in the editor when approaching vehicles.
  • 2D placement of objects is much easier.
