As Arma 3 is a military sandbox game, it was an enjoyment to see Bohemia’s April Fools announcement for 2014 that featured go-karts. The parody video on Splendid Split was received so well by fans of Arma 3 and has been made a reality.
In the Arma 3 Karts DLC, you can race with go-karts that pack a punch with their 20hp 4-stroke engines and several liveries. Bohemia also mentioned that it includes “playable race driver and marshal game characters, new kart-racing Time Trials and Steam Achievements, plus various race objects to build your own racetracks.” The unusual DLC is a “fun little side-step” and will provide the break you need from the heavy battles you face in Arma 3. The unique and refreshing DLC also acts as a test for future DLC plans Bohemia has. One of the key features that Bohemia is trying to tackle with this new approach is allowing players that own downloadable content to play with others that have none of the paid DLC’s.
The Arma 3 Karts DLC is the first paid DLC for Arma 3. You can now also find a DLC Bundle for Arma 3 on Steam that features Arma 3 Helicopters, Marksmen and the Karts DLC in one package. By buying the Karts DLC, you will also be supporting the Czech Red Cross as a portion of the proceeds will go directly to the organization.
