Bohemia Interactive is hosting a sale on Steam for its popular military sandbox PC game Arma 3 between May 28th and June 1st (10 AM PDT / 7 PM CEST). Additionally, the studio is celebrating the six-year anniversary of Arma 3’s first premium DLC – Arma 3 Karts – by making it available for free to own for the duration of the sale. People can simply add the DLC to their Steam library via its store page and it will be theirs forever.
The Arma 3 Karts DLC – a small but fun sidestep in Arma 3‘s typically military sandbox – adds a 20 HP 4-stroke engine go-kart, 5 Time Trials races, plus various kart -themed assets, such as a race driver character, a motorsport marshal and starter pistol, and various plastic barriers to build your own race tracks in Arma 3’s scenario editor.
Starting its life as an April Fools’ joke, Karts is Arma 3‘s first premium downloadable content (DLC). It was released six years ago in 2014 on the 29th of May, and served as a pilot test of the game’s DLC ‘content-licensing’ technology – a new system designed to prevent a split in the game’s multiplayer community between DLC owners and non-owners. After Arma 3 Karts’ first million of Czech koruna in proceeds was donated to charity, it maintained its popularity among players and went on to become the best-selling Arma 3 DLC to date.
