  • Ama lll Apex

    Just jumped on the Arma lll Apex (Arma lll's version of Arrowhead) preorder for $28. Anyone else having blind faith in BIS ability to deliver again?

    Indeed, but the Supporter Edition shall take care of all future DLC for me. Greatest investment ever in gaming. Good on ya Chief...I know we will be using quite a bit of it around here.

      I must confess, I have no idea what Apex is? Is it an upcoming expansion?

        yes, it is. That is what they are calling the Tanoa Island expansion.

          Ahhhh yes. I now remember hearing about an expansion island.

            I wouldn't call it a blind faith, but I did not think twice before pre-ordering, because so far I had no issues with BIS's products (okay, they could optimize their engine little bit better ;)). I don't expect anything ground breaking, but I think it is safe to assume that they will give us something worth $28. There will be a completely new terrain (so much room for activities!), plus some new vehicles, weapons, uniforms and gear (dress up simulator 2016!), and bunch of improvements to the game itself (even though those will be free for everyone, you can still factor those in to the value of the expansion because without it the improvements would never happen).

              As soon as its up for order on Steam I'll order it, unhesitatingly. ArmA has been worth every penny I've put in so far, no reason to think that won't continue.

                The map alone will be worth the price of admission. I'm hoping the trees are optimized better than now I have to admit. It will be great though.

                  [MENTION=109039]Noyava[/MENTION], order it through BIS now and save, plus ALL the money goes to BIS. You will get an email from bis and it will help you activate it on steam. Easy. I just looked and it is listed in my steam account under activated product keys.

                      What does this mean for TG? Assuming that an APEX mission will not run unless every player has bought the expansion, are they still going to be run?

                        hazarding a guess, perhaps something similar to what we did in arma2? had one server running vanilla arma2 and one running with everything. (gotta love having 15 different mods added to your startup line!)

                          Actually it is fairly simple to do with a loader called Arma3Sync. I have all the mods set up into groups, so far I have Custom coop , Joint Ops and Tac Tues. All I have to to do is check the one I want to load, click "join server" and off I go.

                              This line: "dig into the theme of near-future combat, expand the main game's line-up of more familiar / modern-day armaments," is either going to mean they add more familiar assets (like M4's and AKs) or that they consider whats in ArmA 3 NOW to be "familiar / modern-day" and they are going to add Laser Rifles and Proton Canon armed Hover Tanks. Place your bets! :)
