Part of a free platform update available later this month

Bohemia Interactive today deployed a new Arma 3 developer diary video, featuring the upcoming new Arma 3 Scenario Editor: Eden 3D Editor. In the video, Senior Designer Karel Mořický, Programmer Filip Sadovský, and Creative Director Jay Crowe provide a more in-depth look at the Eden Editor’s key features and development process.

While content creation has always been at the heart of the Arma series, the brand new Eden Editor represents a massive leap forward. Users will now be able to design their scenario from within the 3D game environment, which makes building your own scenarios – using Arma 3′s vast library of weapons, characters, vehicles, buildings, and other objects – much more effective and fun. Plus, people can publish their creations to the Arma 3 Steam Workshop, or subscribe to 17,000+ scenarios made by other players.

The Eden 3D Editor will be made available to all Arma 3 players as part of a free platform update scheduled for release later in February 2016. If you would like to learn more about the Eden 3D Editor, also be sure to take a look at our latest blog post, which lists 10 of the Eden Editor’s standout features and improvements.

It’s hard to believe that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 is still a viable cutting edge graphics card today as it first debuted along with the GeForce GTX 980 in September 2014! Over the past 1.5 years the GeForce GTX 970 has become a very popular card for 1080P gaming as it features a competitive price point and you can more times than not get 60 FPS on average with the image quality cranked up in game titles. The add-in board (AIB) partners have continued to release new GeForce GTX 970 video cards over the years and just before 2015 ended our friends over at EVGA announced that the EVGA HYBRID line was being expanded to include GeForce GTX 970. This is great news for those that are concerned about GPU temperatures as you can now buy purchase a GTX 970 that features a maintenance free closed loop ‘all in one’ water cooling solution that significantly lowers the GPU operating temperature.

tom-clancys-the-divisionToday, Ubisoft announced an Open Beta for Tom Clancy’s the Division which will take place February 19-21 on Xbox One, PlayStation® 4 and Windows PC and everyone can preload the content starting February 16. Xbox One players will also have exclusive 24-hour early access starting on February 18.

With the highly anticipated release of Tom Clancy’s The Division just weeks away, and following the recent Closed Beta, the Open Beta is an invitation for all players to get a taste of the game’s mid-crisis New York ahead of its official launch on March 8. This beta will test the game systems further, and provide player feedback that will benefit the game experience at launch.

In addition to the content that was featured in the Closed Beta, the Open Beta will include an all new story mission for players to explore in their pursuit to save the city. Furthermore, everyone who participates in this latest testing phase will receive a special in-game reward which will unlock for players when the full game is released.

Tom Clancy’s The Division takes place weeks after a devastating pandemic sweeps through New York City on Black Friday. One by one, basic services fail and in only days, without food or water, society collapses into chaos. The Division, an autonomous unit of tactical agents leading seemingly ordinary lives among us, is activated to save society. Team up with other players to investigate the source of the virus, protect civilians from dangerous factions, and reclaim the city from the overwhelming turmoil.

View the just released “Enemy Factions” trailer here.

Battlestate Games have just released a brand new developer diary for their upcoming story focused MMO, Escape from Tarkov. The new development diary takes us behind the scenes into the game’s development, as the developers discuss the motion capture techniques that they are using to achieve realistic animations.

Battlestate also discuss several other things- they talk about the weapons that will be in the game, and show us some military advisers multiple times. Curiously enough, these advisers all seem to be shrouded in darkness, so we can never actually see them or their faces.

Almost as interesting is the appearance of the Oculus Rift in this video- now, Oculus Rift support has not yet been confirmed for this game, and the developers don’t even bring attention to the headset themselves, but it may be a tease- could VR compatibility be in the works for this project?

Escape from Tarkov is an MMO shooter anticipated to launch later this year.

More game information is available at the Escape from Tarkov website.

Developer Obsidian Entertainment and publisher My.com unveil new information about the upcoming update 0.13 coming to Armored Warfare on February 11. Coastal Threat is a brand-new map for PvP and brings great possibilities for all classes of vehicles that capitalize on their strategic use in the thick of battle.

Watch the Armored Warfare video here.

Throughout history, the Black Sea region has been a strategic location many parties sought to control due to its importance in trade, as well as its tactical value. In the universe of Armored Warfare, set in the late 2020’s, the relations in the region have significantly deteriorated. The entire area became a battleground for various interests, often backed by the power of one of the newly established Private Military Companies.

An otherwise peaceful town on the coastline has just seen the first glimmers of global conflict; destruction and devastation is left in the wake of armored combatants launching a siege on the area in order to take hold of its natural resources. This 1200×1200 meter map consists of several regions that offer plenty of space to flank your opponents – the southern bay area and the north offer wide arcs of fire, while the city can be used by heavier and slower vehicles to advance under cover.

Other features introduced with update 0.13:

  • Originating from China, a rising new arms dealer by the name of Zhang Feng and his roster of dangerous vehicles, will soon become available for all tank Commanders.
  • Changes will be made so rewards in PvE function similar to PvP in order for the systems to be equitable and beneficial.
  • Updates to the matchmaking system will provide an overall better experience and more balanced matches.
