Connected to the events in the original Arma 3 "The East Wind" campaign, your team is sent to Tanoa in order to prevent a humanitarian disaster, but you quickly find yourselves facing a far bigger threat than they bargained for. The co-op campaign consists of highly replayable missions, featuring a
drop-in/drop-out multiplayer structure, and the difficulty scaling up or down based on the number of players.
