Arma 3’s Laws of War 3 DLC

Bohemia Interactive have dropped details on their next Arma 3 addition, Laws of War 3.

Originally codenamed “Orange DLC,” Laws of War 3 wants to offer you “a different perspective on the battlefield with the addition of a humanitarian faction, van, drone, mini-campaign, and more.”

Arma 3 Laws of War DLC will be available from the beginning of September, with a 10% discount on the €9.99 / $11.99 / £8.99 price for those eager enough to pre-order.

An undisclosed portion of direct sales of the pack will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and the total amount raised announced on sometime next year.

So, what do you get? Here’s the full feature list:

  • International Development & Aid Project – This new faction, IDAP, is a non-governmental organization which is specialized in rapidly responding to humanitarian disasters.

  • Mini-Campaign – Take on the role of IDAP explosive specialist Nathan MacDade, who is tasked with identifying and deactivating mines after the war in the Republic of Altis & Stratis has ended.

  • Van – IDAP makes use of a new van, which comes in multiple variants, with over twenty custom liveries in total.

  • Utility & Demining Drone – IDAP has a new drone at its disposal to be able to quickly move supplies to a specific location or assist with demining operations.

  • APERS Mine Dispenser – The APERS Mine Dispenser is an effective but controversial area denial weapon system. It is typically only used in desperate situations.

  • Vests, Bags, Headgear & Facewear – Various pieces of new gear help carry out your duties, including safety vests and goggles, hard hats, messenger bags, and more.

  • Additional Content – Time trial challenges for the new van and drone, a paramedic outfit, and a training mine.

In addition, the Laws of War DLC will be supported by a major free Arma 3 platform update, including:

  • Refined cluster strikes

  • The simulation of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO)

  • The ability to drop (custom) leaflets from the sky

  • Two new Showcase scenarios (Showcase Laws of War and Faction Showcase IDAP)

  • Emergency and medical supplies such as food bags, water bottle packages, blankets, stretchers, and IV bags

  • Decorative objects such as shelter tents and new furniture

  • Extra Steam Achievements

Arma 3’s last DLC pack, Jets, released in May. It also gave players a CVN-83 “USS Freedom” Aircraft Carrier whether they bought the DLC or not.
