New Arma 3 expansion Tanoa is coming in the first half of 2016.


Tanoa will release as DLC for Arma 3 and adds over 100km2 of new terrain. The expansion will adds new vehicles, weapons, attachments and gear, characters, playable content and more.

It’s the first South Pacific location for the Arma series, and was unveiled during the E3 2015 PC Gaming Show.

“Situated in the South Pacific, the island province of Tanoa is one of many that, together, compose the Horizon Islands – an independent island nation with historic ties to both East and West,” Bohemia Interactive said.

“Formerly an outpost belonging to the Empire of Japan, before its liberation by US Marines in 1944, evidence of a long history of conflict and turmoil can still be found dotted across the island – relics from times long-since passed.

“Nowadays, Tanoa thrives off rich deposits of rare earth metals exported the world over, but controversy and civil unrest have long surrounded these efforts due to the perceived social, economic and environmental impacts of their exploitation. Tanoa is also believed to be a hub of illicit trafficking in the Pacific, but no formal charges have ever been raised.

“In 2035, Tanoa continues to enjoy a prolonged period of apparent peace and prosperity, but the volatile geopolitical situation on the world’s stage threatens to destabilize the region, and plunge it into darkness once more.”
