Should Arma 3 be a Steam exclusive?

Rock, Paper, Shotgun chats with Arma 3 project lead Joris-Jan van ‘t Land.

“Most of the reasoning is covered in our development blog. To sum it up: we took an honest look at where we were, weighed up all of our options, and decided on this as the best way forward for Arma 3. I believe it’s important to keep in mind that any benefit to us as developer, should be a benefit to players. Making the setup process smoother, having updates be more frequent and distributed quicker, being able to deliver mods and other user-generated content easier, and freeing up time for us to support important things like the SDK. They will all unlock Arma 3?s potential and longevity. The requirement from ourselves to release in 2013 is not just a business decision; this is important for the team as well. You cannot keep a team motivated for years and it’s hard to keep the technology state-of-the-art.”

So I have decided to release these to you all. When making a mission…ambience is one of the most important factors and I feel many forget the impact that sight (or lack of), sounds, etc, have on our gaming experiences.

So please find attached 4 sounds for your enjoyment:

Arma2-andy_mags-unique models for magazines

"This is a beta as I dont have all models. I will not make the missing models myself as I must prioritize my arma2 time..
I am however asking you as community member if you like to help this addon into a signed v1.0?
Proper credit will be given ofcourse, but beware that what you add to this addon will fall under the BIS mlod-license!
Once I have all models I will release v1.0 of this addon and sign it so it can be used in MP. "
