Weapon 3: screenshot

Arma 3 is a video game that you can currently find for other platforms in the Valve store, Steam. Unfortunately it is not for Linux, but hard work is being done to change this soon. In fact, work is being done to port this title to the penguin platform and it is expected that next year a 64-bit version will be released in packages to be able to test it before obtaining the final title.

This means that the news about new video games that are being ported to Linux, something that is beginning to be profitable and so many companies and independent studies are working or thinking of porting some of their products to work in the free kernel. But not only that, as we have announced in this blog, there are also news about exclusive titles for Linux, even if they are not AAAA, and about others that directly come out multiplatform ...

For those who still do not know the Arma 3 video game, it is a video game with good graphics that aims to enter the niche of the titles of war simulation of an open world in which you will be another NATO soldier in the middle of an interesting mission. It is developed by Bohemia Interactive and distributed on the well-known Steam platform that we already talked about in the first paragraph. Since its release in September 2013 for Microsoft Windows, there are many who have given good reviews of this game.

The world in which it takes place is that of the Greek islands of the Aegean Sea (Altis, Stratis) where NATO forces are deployed on a mission that dates back to the year 2030. There they are trying to hold off a military offensive by Iran from the east to Europe. Therefore you will be Corporal Kerry, an American soldier stationed there and with whom you will have to fight in different campaigns or in multi-player mode.

    I come from the future to say that ARMA 3 works on linux, although steam still puts it as Windows .. As my card is an Nvidia 820m I must configure the game in the minimum, it looks ugly but functional and that is pleasant.
