The Arma 3 alpha is releasing on March 5th. Same day as Simcity release. It's available to anyone, but you have to buy into it. You get the full game on release though and it is a discounted price. I'm pretty stoked!

Did they simplify the UI any?
Main reason I never enjoyed the game. Too Many different buttons to carry out actions.

I don't know I cant play it yet :P But yes, that was one of their goals is to streamline the interface while retaining all previous functions and adding new ones. At one time I wouldve agreed with you about ARMA2 but being used to it now theres really not a ton of controls you need to know. Also keep in mind this is a MilSim, not CoD or BF

Damn I don't get paid until after the alpha is released. Is there any speculation or annoucement on how long the alpha is?

Thanks for this thread. I love ARMA 2 and didn't realize a preorder will get you in the Alpha for the third one.

In for a preorder! :clap:

I'm don't even meet the minimum specs, so not even going to worry about getting it.

Is no one else playing this? Cause this is really one of the best PC game launches I've ever seen. Stop complaining about Simcity and pick this up. Modding in an ALPHA?! That is unheard of. Play whenever you want Alpha, setup your own server Alpha, import almost anything from the previous game Alpha, get 3 invites for your friends Alpha, get a full game for half price Alpha. Srsly, why no one pay attention to this
