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.

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 (€7.99EUR / £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 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.

Creator DLC is a label for original Arma 3 projects made by third-party developers and published by Bohemia Interactive.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
