The hotly anticipated Arma 3 will be going into Alpha on March 5, and it will be open to players who have the game pre-ordered already. There are two ways you can pre-order the game, you can get the standard edition $32.99, or you can get the Digital Deluxe Edition on Steam for $49.99. The Deluxe edition comes with a number of extra content that will become available when the game launches. It will include the game’s soundtrack, game maps, a tactical guide, and a Steam copy of Arma: Cold War Assault, that was published in 2001 as Operation Flashpoint. It doesn’t matter which version you select when the beta comes out, the beta will be available with both purchases.
There will also be a Arma 3: Supporter Edition for $91.99, from the Bohemia online store. It’ll come with everything from the Digital Deluxe Edition, and it’ll grant you access to all future downloadable content, a special forums medal, and you can even get your name in the game’s credits. If you don’t want to pre-order it, Bohemia will be offering an Arma 3 Alpha lite, where you can still get in the game and try it for yourself. Bohemia Interactive is really pushing the game, and it seems like they really want people to get their hands on it.
