Try the game for free and pick up Arma 3 and its DLC with discounts up to 66%
This includes access to all vanilla weapons and vehicles, but also the Scenario Editor, all multiplayer modes, and even the full “Bootcamp Prologue” and “The East Wind” singleplayer campaign. To install the game, Arma 3 will be temporarily added to your Steam Library, or you can install the game via Arma 3’s store page on Steam. In case this free version doesn’t show up, we advise you to restart your Steam client.
Enjoying the game? If you wish to continue playing after the Free Weekend (and we’re sure you will!), we’re offering a temporary discount of 66% on the Arma 3 base game or the Arma 3 Apex Edition. You’ll also be able to pick up all Arma 3 DLC (except Tanks DLC) at a massive discount, so be sure to check out the Arma 3 store page even if you already own the base game.
Since its initial release, Arma 3 has received more than 75 free platform updates, introducing additional content, new features, and lots of improvements. As a result, the game is in a better shape than it’s ever been. Plus, the Arma 3 community (of more than 4 million players) has been incredibly active as well, with an average playtime per Arma 3 user of 150+ hours, 50,000+ public Steam Workshop items, and over 57,000 registered Units. Take a look at our new infographic poster[steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net] for a quick overview of Arma 3’s splendid™ journey so far.
Last but not least, to help you enjoy the Free Weekend to the max, we’d like to suggest the following “Free Weekend” battle plan:
- Clear your schedule for the weekend + stock up on food and drinks + (semi-)optional: give flowers to your significant other
If you’re new to Arma 3
- Install Arma 3 (and tell your friends to do the same)
- Join a multiplayer server and have no idea what you’re doing
- Become familiar with Arma 3 by playing the “Bootcamp Prologue” singleplayer campaign
- Check out the Virtual Arsenal/Garage and play around in the Scenario Editor
- Get the game at 66% off (and consider joining/starting an Arma 3 Unit[units.arma3.com] for the ultimate experience)
If you’re an existing Arma 3 player
- Spread the word and invite your friends (via social media, pigeon messenger, town crier)
- Join a multiplayer server, and go (tactical) Rambo on all the newcomers
- Light up a victory cigar
- Take a few rookies under your wing (share your Arma knowledge, recruit them to your community group, etc.)
- Eat, brush teeth, sleep – then repeat steps 1-5
If you’re none of the above
- This option is currently not available
- Performing systems check…

Jokes aside, we wish you and your friends a wonderful (free) weekend. Have fun playing the game!
