Developer Bohemia Interactive has released the first trailer showing of the forthcoming Zeus DLC, a free update planned for Arma 3 that will introduce a dungeon master-esque "game master" component to the game's multiplayer that affords one player god-like in-game editing powers to manipulate a battlefield scenario in real-time, and fire off lightning strikes.
Assume the role of game master and curate the experience of other Arma 3 players. Wielding an intuitive real-time editor, you can manipulate or expand multiplayer scenarios on-the-fly, and create a surprising flow of challenges for the soldiers on the ground.
ENROLL AS PLAYERS
Form a squad, head into battle, and engage in truly dynamic combat. As one of Zeus' subjects, you need to react to varied objectives, and adapt to unscripted events on a constantly-evolving battlefield. Improvisation is your key to success.
Play Arma 3 Zeus across its distinctive 'Game Master' game type scenarios, where nothing has been predetermined. Or visit familiar modes like 'Coop', 'Team Deathmatch', and 'Sector Control' in a completely new way. Zeus multiplayer also works with custom player-created scenarios.
