Arma 3 is going to Vietnam

PC gaming’s biggest military sandbox will be expanding soon with S.O.G. Prairie Fire, a new paid DLC focused on the Vietnam War.

The $23 (€23/£20) DLC will add a bunch of new era-specific weapons (“pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns, grenade launchers … and deadly grenades, traps, and other special items.”), along with 50-plus vehicles from the period, “armed helicopters, gunboats, light tanks, cars, trucks, static weapons, one jet, five small boats, and two bicycles,” Bohemia Interactive says.

Maybe most interesting to Arma players will be the new terrain, Cam Lao Nam, a fictional 300 km2 slice of land “representing the Vietnam War’s entire Area of Operations, including the Ho Chi Minh Trail which ran from North Vietnam through neighboring Laos and Cambodia to South Vietnam.” Based on that, it sounds like the map will attempt to distill distinct features of the region down to a single contiguous play space. Arma maps themselves are major additions to the game, and it’ll be interesting to see how this one sets the stage for the jungle warfare that the Vietnam War is often remembered for.
