Arma 3 Apex – DLC размером с половину игры
Уже заждались полномасштабных расширений для Arma 3? А ведь не зря, в последнее время не выходило ничего стоящего. Но ребята из Bohemia Interactive решили прервать эту злосчастную цепочку и уже выпустили детище давно состоявшегося родителя.
Разработчики указали, что «Apex является кульминацией над пятнадцатилетней работы над серией Arma». Так что в качестве и интересности можно быть уверенным.
Помимо красивых слов, создатели порадовали общественность контентом, множеством контента, если быть точнее. Тут у нас и кооперативные миссии на 4 человек и огромная карта, и новые задания, а еще новый режим для сетевой игры. Поэтому бегом покупать дополнение, если вышенаписанные строки пробудили в вас хоть каплю интереса.
Самым важным нововведением является новое огромное поля для боя, растянувшееся на 100 квадратных километров – архипелаг Таноа в южной части Тихого океана. Кусок кода в виде красивого пейзажа будет отрисовывать вулканы, тропические, леса, промышленный порт, а также сахарный завод. На всем этом можно развернуть такие масштабные сценарии, что сам Майкл Бэй пустит слезу от зависти.
Следующей не менее важной инновацией станет кооперативный режим в лице операции «протокол Apex». Завязкой сюжетной линии для 4 человек станет задание, в котором специальному оперативнику НАТО CTRG следует высадиться на остров для предотвращения гуманитарной катастрофы. Авторы обещают крутой поворот, благодаря которому сюжет повернется, так сказать, «Лицом к игроку, а к скукоте задом». Впрочем, все может оказаться наоборот.
Аддон вышел очень даже объемным, как в плане контента, так и в плане занятого места на жестком диске – вам потребуется минимум 15 ГБ свободного пространства. К слову, вместе с ним вышли бесплатные обновления для основной игры, правящие многие моменты, добавляющие улучшения и не только.
DLC уже доступно для скачивания в сервисе цифровой дистрибуции Steam по цене в 1699 рублей или 34.99 вечнозеленых. Помимо самого дополнения, потребуется приобретенная версия обычной Arma 3.
ENLIST FOR ACTIVE DUTY WITH ARMA 3 APEX
BE DEPLOYED TO A BRAND NEW WARZONE
Walk, swim, drive, fly, and sail your way across 100 km² of South Pacific island terrain
Home to lush tropical vegetation, unique landmarks, a rich history, and imposing man-made feats of modern engineering, this 100 km² South Pacific archipelago is built to bolster authentic combat on a massive scale. Tanoa’s varied locations, such as the rainforests, volcano, shanty towns, sugar cane factory, and industrial port, cater to all scenario types. Whether it’s to conduct an all-out assault, a small-scale covert op, jungle warfare, or anything else suited to a South Pacific setting – Tanoa is the destination of choice. Your next adventure awaits.
WEAPONS & VEHICLES
Engage in authentic combat on a massive scale with new armed forces, weapons, and vehicles
Positioned as the primary opposing force, Syndikat is a local criminal organization with deep roots on Tanoa. Made up of armed thugs and ex-paramilitaries, this new faction is involved in many illicit operations throughout the region, carrying mostly ‘classic’ weaponry such as AKs, RPGs, and 9 mm pistols.
NATO and CSAT Pacific Forces consist of existing Arma 3 soldiers, re-deployed to Tanoa, and equipped with weapons and gear suited to the South Pacific environment, plus a few small additions such as the Chinese radio protocol and heads/faces for CSAT.
The new Gendarmerie faction represent a small local law enforcement agency on Tanoa.
WEAPONS & GEAR
The AKS-74U is basically a shortened AK-74, which enabled significant production savings. Like the
AK-74, this variant is also chambered in 5.45×39 mm, but its compact dimensions make it suitable for special forces, vehicle crews, police patrols, etcetera. However, the lower muzzle velocity makes the
AKS-74U effective up to around 400 meters only.
The AKM gas-operated assault rifle with a rotating bolt is a modernized version of the older AK-47. Its improvements over the AK-47 made mass manufacturing simpler, but also decreased the weight, and increased accuracy, of the weapon. The gun’s exceptional wear and corrosion resistance has been preserved.
The AK-12 is a modern assault rifle designed to replace the legendary AK-74 as the general issue weapon for the Russian army. The weapon introduces many improvements over its predecessors: better recoil control, suitable for various ammunition types, compatibility with several accessories, and better ergonomics. This particular version is chambered in 7.62×39 mm, so it trades a bit of accuracy for a bigger punch and better penetration.
The light infantry machine gun 85 is an iteration of a special purpose weapon. Combining a high fire-rate and relatively easy maintenance, it was adopted by several armies around the world. It features standard accessory rails and 200-round box 5.56×45 mm magazines. It weighs 7.1 kilograms, which is less than its predecessors.
The RPG-7 is a portable, reusable, unguided, shoulder-launched, anti-tank, rocket-propelled grenade launcher. Its ruggedness, simplicity, low cost and effectiveness, has made it the most widely used anti-armor weapon in the world. Currently, around 40 countries use the weapon and it is manufactured in several variants by nine countries. It’s also popular with guerrilla forces. The RPG has been used in almost all conflicts since the mid-1960s, from the Vietnam War to the more recent conflicts in the Pacific area.
The PM is a Russian semi-automatic pistol, which became the Soviet Union’s standard military and police side arm in 1951. Although its nominal caliber was 9.0 mm, the actual bullet was 9.22 mm in diameter, since caliber in Russia is measured between the grooves and not the lands of the rifling. Being shorter and wider, the 9 mm cartridge is thus incompatible with pistols chambered for 9×19 mm cartridges and vice-versa.
The SPAR-16 is a standard issue assault rifle of CTRG units in Pacific, chambered for 5.56 mm ammunition. The gun is a reliable rifle compatible with a large number of accessories. Multiple variants of this rifle exist, each suitable for a different role. The SPAR-16 GL is equipped with an underslung grenade launcher, the SPAR-16S with its thicker barrel and drum magazine works as a light support weapon.
A bullpup style assault rifle used by CSAT Pacific forces. It works as a common platform for different weapon types: a standard rifle, GL variant with attached grenade launcher, and a light support version with a longer barrel and drum magazine. The CAR-95 uses polymer materials in its construction and fires 5.8×42 mm small-caliber, high-velocity bullets.
Designated marksman rifle of an Eastern origin. It is a gas operated, semi-automatic rifle of a bullpup construction. The housing is made of polymer. The rifle is chambered in 6.5 mm and therefore is most suited to ranges from 500 to 700 meters.
The CMR-76 is missing both the sides and the bottom rails but is equipped with a bipod by default.
The SPAR-17 designated marksman rifle is in many ways similar to the SPAR-16. The main difference is the chambering to 7.62 mm which also means a longer, thicker barrel and more weight. Thanks to the more powerful ammunition, the SPAR-17 is most suitable for ranges from 600 to 800 meters. The rifle offers a single and full auto mode and is, like the SPAR-16, compatible with a large number of accessories.
A lightweight, air-cooled, selective fire, delayed blowback operated submachine gun with a roller-delayed bolt. The compact size, accuracy and high rate of fire of the Protector are highly regarded and the gun is used in many variants by numerous military, law enforcement, intelligence and security organizations all around the world.
The armed forces in Arma 3 Apex are reinforced with new regular and thermal-masking uniforms, headgear, backpacks, NVGs (Night Vision Goggles), ERCO weapon optics, and more.
The V-44 X Blackfish’ third-generation tilt-rotor VTOL (Vertical Take-Off and Landing) technology allows this long endurance aircraft to conveniently utilize a wide range of airfields and runways. It also provides unparalleled maneuverability with its unique ability to perform pylon turns or merely hover in place. The huge internal storage allows for transportation of vehicles up to the size and weight of AMV-7 Marshall APC in the vehicle transport variant or up to 32 fully armed soldiers with supplies in the infantry transport variant. The storage space of the gunship variant is fully occupied by automated weapon stations and carried ammunition.
This was by far the largest CSAT joint development project, and it eventually became one of the most expensive programs in military procurement history. The final solution was based upon the most promising prototype designed in Xi’an, which was able to meet most of the requirements. High running and maintenance costs remains in issue that plagues the reputation of the otherwise extremely progressive aircraft with many unique features and cutting-edge technologies.
An agile, lightly protected vehicle for 5-6 soldiers – depending on the configuration. Qilin offers safe and fast operating speeds with superior levels of mobility and maneuverability. It is highly adaptable to severe, rugged and restrictive terrains while providing off-road, cross-country mobility under all types of weather conditions. CSAT Pacific forces primarily use the unarmed variant and the armed variant fitted with a 6.5 mm minigun.
This autonomous/remotely controlled helicopter drone is mainly used as close air support and can be deployed in the most dangerous zones thanks to its unmanned construction. The Falcon is equipped with a laser designator and can therefore handle surveillance, reconnaissance and target designation tasks. Its greatest strength, however, lies in its armament. It carries two rocket pods, each with 12 unguided rockets and six Scalpel air-to-ground missiles. MQ-12 Falcon can also use countermeasures for self-defense.
The KH-3A Fenghuang is an unmanned aerial drone based on Chinese design. The UAV adopts the unusual canard layout and is propelled by a pusher engine. This multipurpose drone is equipped with modern tracking and tracing systems, countermeasures and also carries four air-to-ground laser guided missiles.
The MB 4WD is a modern four-wheel drive off-road vehicle with a distinctive construction. The vehicle was produced in the US and exists in a number of different editions. Thanks to the powerful engine, durable chassis and great maneuverability, this vehicle can handle difficult terrains from dry deserts to humid jungles or artic wastelands. The MB 4WD can be used as a civilian car.
Caesar BTT is a single-engine, fixed-gear, low-wing general aviation aircraft built from composite materials. The Caesar BTT is one of the fastest fixed-gear, single-engine piston aircraft, reaching a speed of 235 knots (435 km/h) true air speed at 25,000 feet (7,600 m). It is used by civilians and smaller shipping companies all around the world.
The rigid-hulled inflatable boat, (RHIB) is a light-weight but high-performance and high-capacity boat constructed with a solid, shaped hull and flexible tubes at the gunwale. The boat can fit 7 passengers and a driver. RHIB can be used for multiple tasks. It can be a simple transport boat with some countries deploying them for coast guarding. This is in contrast to criminals on Tanoa who use RHIBs as a fast and small smuggling boat.
A Personal WaterCraft of sit-down type. This small-hulled craft driven by a jet-propulsion system offers seats for 3 people. Its powerful engine and great maneuverability make this craft a lot of fun to drive. And of course this water transport vehicle is perfectly suited for military use as well.
Take on the role of a NATO CTRG special operator in the
1-4 player «Apex Protocol» co-op campaign
Connected to the events in the original Arma 3 «The East Wind» campaign, your team is sent to Tanoa in order to prevent a humanitarian disaster, but you quickly find yourselves facing a far bigger threat than they bargained for. The co-op campaign consists of highly replayable missions, featuring a
drop-in/drop-out multiplayer structure, and the difficulty scaling up or down based on the number of players.
OLD MAN SCENARIO
Step into the shoes of a retired Legionnaire in this open-world, singleplayer scenario
After the events of the Arma 3 “The East Wind” and “Apex Protocol” campaigns, the South Pacific island nation of Tanoa is hit by yet another humanitarian crisis; a malaria outbreak. When authorities fail to distribute an effective vaccine, a local veteran is tipped off about a possible plot and sets out to uncover the truth.
