Arma 3 Zeus DLC takes a page out of Dungeon and Dragons' playbook

Bohemia Interactive has announced the next content pack for Arma 3, Zeus.


The free multiplayer DLC will be made available during Q2 of this year.

In it, players can take on the role of Game Master and "curate the online battles of other players." Game Masters are free to create objectives, spawn units, and steer players across Arma 3’s Altis and Stratis terrains.

Here's the synopsis, per Bohemia:

"Inspired by tabletop games such as Dungeons & Dragons, a limited number of players can assume the role of Game Master, and influence the multiplayer experience of those with boots on the ground. Watching the battlefield from a bird's-eye view, wielding an intuitive real-time editor, Zeus can create, manipulate or expand mission content to generate new stories and a flow of challenges.

"The result is incredibly dynamic, unscripted combat gameplay - and multiplayer sessions which are filled with unexpected, challenging, and creative events."

The DLC's concept works across all familiar multiplayer games such as Team Deathmatch and Sector Control, and players can either work with or against Zeus. Arma 3 Zeus can also be implemented into player-created multiplayer scenarios.

A teaser video for the content is below.
