Steam Summer Sale, Arma 3 roadmap, DayZ 0.63, Ylands 0.9, Vigor reveal

The summer is here, which means it's time for... more games/gaming!

Steam Summer Sale

The Steam Summer Sale has kicked off, so get ready to stock up on all those games and DLC from your Wishlist. That includes a 66% discount on Arma 3, Arma 3 Apex, and various Arma 3 DLC - and discounts up to 80% on other Bohemia games such as Take On Helicopters and Arma 2. This will also be one of the last opportunities to purchase DayZ at its lowest Early Access price PLUS a 20% discount, before the game's pricing increases when it goes into BETA. So don't miss out!

Arma 3 Roadmap 2018

Arma 3 is already entering its fifth year of post-release support and we still have a variety of exciting new content lined up for you this year. In our recent Roadmap 2018 devblog, we share some first intel on the Summer "Encore" Update, "Old Man" open-world bonus scenario for Arma 3 Apex owners, and we discuss some of our plans for Arma 3 in 2019 and beyond. Learn more on the Arma 3 website!

DayZ 0.63 Experimental

DayZ is getting ready for its biggest update yet, which brings in a lot of brand new core technology that powers what we call 'the new DayZ experience'. After extensively stress-testing the build, we have just deployed Update 0.63 to the Experimental branch, which means we're in the final phase before releasing this update to the Stable branch for all players to enjoy.

Ylands Update 0.9 "Comfortable Cooperation"

It's great to build your own beautiful paradise in Ylands, but it's even better to do so with friends! But of course you'll want to make sure your creations are always saved - even when the server host leaves the game. That's where our new Sharegame feature comes in. Ylands Update 0.9 automatically uploads everything to the cloud once a host leaves the game, so the other players in the server can continue playing. Another highlight of the new update are Blueprints. These let you build certain structures automatically, instead of by hand. You just need to make sure to collect all the necessary resources. Watch our 0.9 Dev Diary video on how this all works.

Vigor Reveal

Hello Outlanders, and welcome to Vigor! Our brand-new Xbox One exclusive game, powered by the Unreal Engine 4, will deliver a tense multiplayer experience. Set against the picturesque backdrop of 1991 post-war Norway, you'll have to gather resources to build up your shelter through map-based encounters with 8-16 players. Vigor is an important project for our company in many ways, and aside from enabling us to expand our portfolio, it takes us several steps closer to some of our long-term goals and ambitions. Vigor will be available on Xbox Game Preview this summer, and version 1.0 will release as a free-to-play game in early 2019. Scavenge for more info.

As you can see, 2018 is set to be a trans-formative year for Bohemia games, and we're glad to have you along for the ride. Thanks - and see you on Altis, Chernarus, Norway, or your private Ylands!
