Bohemia Interactive has today announced a new update for their realistic military sim ArmA 3 that will be adding in a variety of single-player and multiplayer training tactics, all aimed at helping new and old players adjust to the extreme needs of Arma 3.
Conveniently dubbed the "Bootcamp Update," the latest addition to the game delivers four new game modes: Single-player Bootcamp, Multiplayer Bootcamp, VR Training and Virtual Arsenal. The single-player bootcamp will function as the name suggests, inviting players to compete in computer-led tutorials of ArmA 3's various features, while its Multiplayer analogue allows experienced players to guide raw recruits through the rigors of virtual battle.
VR Training closely mimics actual gameplay, allowing players to practice their skills in a battlefield environment where they will not be penalized for mistakes. By contrast, the Virtual Arsenal is less a gameplay mode, and more an equipment viewer that allows players to outfit their in-game avatars and export the results to ArmA 3's scenarios.
To round off the Bootcamp update, Bohemia has also announced enhanced Steam Workshop support for ArmA 3. While players are currently able to download community-created scenarios, the update will allow fans to share "custom weapons, vehicles, gear and much more."
