Bohemia Interactive recently launched a new DLC pack for their Arma 3. Along with the DLC came a game made from a total conversion mod, called Argo. Both DLC and the new game are free.
Bohemia Interactive is encouraging you to take up their tactical shooter Arma 3 by giving away a free DLC pack for the game. The DLC is not the only thing on offer: Argo, the multiplayer spinoff from the Arma series is also attainable for zero moneys.
Before it was a free tactical shooter, Argo was a total conversion mod for Arma 3. It spent some time in the Bohemia's Incubator development program and came out a changed mod. Well, not completely changed. Just more, you know, a full game.
Argo is a first-person shooter that features three five vs. five modes and a co-op mode named Combat Patrol. The latter brings ten players together and gives them the objective to patrol and combat. Not necessarily in that order.
Argo is set on a re-imagining of the island that appeared in the first Arma game. Another thing this game borrowed from Arma series is the Arma 3 scenario editor, which allows for customization of Combat Patrol objectives.
Argo is a free to play game, without any microtransactions. However, there is a Supporter's Pack available for purchase. The Pack includes 14 animations for the end-of-match MVP screen, 22 cosmetic items, the ability to use vehicles in the scenario editor, and access to premium Argo Support servers. The Supporter's Pack costs around £8.99 and it's available now through Steam.
The extra content for Arma 3 is a version of Argo's island map and Combat Patrol mode. The things have come full circle.
