Arriving with a price-point similar to that of the Founders Edition, the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity is a great choice for those looking to pick-up an RTX 3080.

An OC beast that runs cool, silent, and also happens to be built like Rolls Royce.

With the long-awaited realistic military simulator now out of its testing stages and into the spotlight of release, Bohemia Interactive's ArmA 3 is the closest you will get to performing real life military actions without the need to get out of your chair. With a large amount of changes from previous ArmA titles including dynamic lightning and underwater gameplay under their belt, the question now turns to how does ArmA 3 deliver on these realistic proposals?

To help us dive into the graphically intensive military simulator is head solider Joab Gilroy, who finds out just how large of an area the Altis island covers and marvels at butterfly shadows.
Underwater missions, accomplished vehicle physics, an impressive array of player stances and fantastic visuals can't make up for a too-big map full of nothing and a handful of missions most computers and servers can't fully handle. I'll tell you what though, Arma III is going to be a great game in 2015.
Check out the full ArmA 3 review for his impressions.

yes

Any word on mods? I am keen to know if ArmA 3 has the same moddability of ArmA 2 - i.e., will they be able to make something like a DayZ mod.

Funny enough DayZ is already out for ArmA 3, albeit not by the official developer, Rocket. I presume its the same style of process as there has been a number of ArmA 2 mods imported over.

It has Steamworks support. From all accounts moddability is the same as ARMA2.

Wasteland, Domination and Life servers are all mods ported almost directly from Arma II.

It's just as moddable as past Arma games Trog, but if you're only interesting in DayZ then just wait a bit for DayZ standalone. DayZ devblogs here.

There is DayZ on Arma 3 but my experience has been less than great with it. It's not official as Eorl said.

I've personally had some performance issues on Altis, f*** it's a big map, a bit over 25km from west to east. I need a gfx card with more than 1gb ram I think.

Seems to be this price or there abouts everywhere, actually comes out a bit more expensive in GBP/Euro, steam AU seems the best option, don't hear that often. But for a boxed copy there is this.

The reason I landed on 'great in 2015' was because that's when the Domination mods for the tactical groups really started to shine. Of course by the ACE and ACRE were in full swing as well.

Arma 2 still works, I'll keep playing Wasteland on that (and occasionally I'll do a Tac mission). I really want Clan Valhalla to bring back their Island Life server.

Have they not been ported over yet? Might wait till they have if so. It's usually all i play.

ACE has not, ACRE has. ACE is a bit more work than a simple port. Don't expect it for a while yet.

The DayZ port for Arma III is called 'Zoombies mod.' It's fun, has a mature community but has died down now I think.

Some of my screenshots:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.
