Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is Arma 3 Creator DLC?
    Creator DLC is a label for original Arma 3 projects made by third-party developers and published by Bohemia Interactive. This program enables external talent to earn a financial reward for their work, while players get to enjoy more new quality content. For more information, please visit the Arma 3 website.
  • Why is Creator DLC optional to install?
    We have decided to make it optional to have the Creator DLC data installed. This is mainly to avoid regular Arma 3 installations from requiring a lot more additional hard-drive storage, even for those who have not purchased Creator DLC. The second reason is that a Creator DLC's theme or setting might be very different from regular Arma 3 and not everyone might want it to be visible in their game.
  • How do I launch Spearhead 1944?
    You will need to visit the DLC section in the Arma 3 Launcher, make sure Spearhead 1944 is owned and loaded, then launch the game by clicking the PLAY button.
  • Can I still play together with people who do not own the DLC in multiplayer?
    To enable non-owners to still play on multiplayer servers that make use of Spearhead 1944 content, Heavy Ordnance Works has published a "compatibility data for non-owners" via the Steam Workshop. Be aware that access to the DLC's premium Normandy terrain, campaign, and singleplayer scenarios remain exclusive to owners of the DLC. Restrictions to the use of non-owned content also apply.
