Publisher Bohemia Interactive and third-party developer Rotators Collective are excited to announce Arma 3 Creator DLC: Reaction Forces.

When the call comes, nothing is more important than how fast you react. In this new Creator DLC, fast decisions with small squads are key. Reaction Forces offers new weapons, vehicles, gear, and more to rapidly react to a multitude of situations in new single and multiplayer scenarios, and to enhance your overall experience in the Arma 3 sandbox.

Key features of the Reaction Forces Creator DLC include:

  • 2035 "Futura" Setting - Enhance your Arma 3 experience with new assets and content that fits seamlessly into Arma 3's narrative and world.
  • Two New Rifles and Pistols - Equip yourself with the HADES H6 bolt-action rifle, Veles bullpup rifle, Mk26 L5 pistol, and G19 pistol. New optics and rail attachments are also available to customize these and other weapons for the mission ahead.
  • A New Helicopter, Pickup Truck, UAV, and Two Static Mortar Systems - Run water bombing or Search and Rescue missions with the new Cougar Helicopter, cross rough terrain in the versatile MOOSE pickup, or support combat efforts with the new RC-40 Micro-UAV, Commando Mortar, and 120 mm Twin Mortar system.
  • New Pylon Weapons Systems - Outfit your helicopter with formidable firepower with the 12.7 mm autocannon, 20 mm cannon DAR/DAGR x19 missiles, or Tratnyr HE/AP x16 missiles.
  • New Uniforms and Equipment - Rapidly respond to situations with the right gear, available in multiple variants - including new wildland firefighter fatigues, flight helmets and suits, heavy combat helmets, shape breaker covers for existing helmets, full brim hard hats, duffle bags, TNVG-B night-vision goggles, Carrier Lite Rig and Tactical Vest Rig variants, and colored steerable parachutes.
  • Open-World Campaign Scenario: "Air Control" - Take part in a combined arms offensive! Prioritize your tasks, transport special forces, and fly logistics as a helicopter pilot, influencing battles below from above in this extensive 12-player open-world campaign scenario.
  • Singleplayer Scenarios: "Training Day'' and "Fire Season" - Familiarize yourself with the Cougar helicopter and take part in water bombing drills on Malden. Once trained, you can go on duty and help protect the island during fire season.
  • CO-OP and Singleplayer Scenario: "QRF'' - Respond to an emergency call and protect the HVT until reinforcements arrive! As a Quick Reaction Force (QRF), defend against waves of enemies and fight for your life against overwhelming odds in this new co-op game mode. Conserve your ammo and pick your targets carefully while working closely with a team of up to six people.
  • Multiplayer Mode: "Cashpoint" - A series of cashpoint robberies are happening all across Malden and Tanoa — will you stop the criminals responsible, or are you one of them? This is a Team Deathmatch scenario for up to 12 players in two uneven teams.
  • Music - A new soundtrack sets the tone for the CDLC, providing the perfect atmosphere for intense operations.
  • Additional Content - Experience new customizable modules, as well as new wildfire and water bombing mechanics.

The Arma 3 Creator DLC: Reaction Forces is scheduled to release soon and will be priced at $7.99 USD (€7.99 EUR / £6.99 GBP). You can add the CDLC to your Steam wishlist via the store page to be notified of the release of Reaction Forces.

In addition, upon full release, Rotators Collective will publish a compatibility data pack for non-owners to the Arma 3 Steam Workshop. Subscribing to this Workshop item will allow those who do not own Reaction Forces to still play on multiplayer servers that use the assets from the CDLC. Restrictions on in-game use of CDLC assets by non-owners will apply. More information can be found on the Community Wiki.
