The Eden Update for Arma 3, which features the 3D Scenario Editor, has been released.

Along with the Eden Editor, the update includes a Launcher-Based Server Browser, audio upgrade, and many other improvements which enhance the game’s core usability and provide a creative outlet for players.

Details on the update are as follows:

  • Eden 3D Editor – Retaining the beloved simplicity of creating scenarios, the new editor finally adds the third dimension and a lot of desired functionality.
  • Launcher-Based Server Browser – Get into multiplayer sessions more easily via better filtering options and Workshop mod support.
  • Audio Upgrade – A multi-channel amplitude panner and distance-based samples for weapons and explosions add more immersion and fidelity to combat sounds.
  • Font – Process information more quickly with a new, easier-to-read in-game font.

In addition to the above, the Eden Update also implements Steam Leaderboards, various scripted system optimizations, parallax ground surfaces, Nvidia’s HBAO+, and more.

The complete changelog for update 1.56 contains even more information.

Apex, a major expansion for Arma 3, is due for release in Q2 this year.
