Today we've released a free update for Arma 3, which introduces a new competitive multiplayer mode called “Warlords”. A trailer video explains the mode’s basic concept in the form of a military briefing.

In Warlords, there are two competing teams, and their goal is to capture the base of the opposite side. Players start the match by joining either the NATO or CSAT faction. Both teams then need to start conquering sectors across the map, belonging to non-player AI forces from the AAF faction. By establishing a chain of linked sectors, opponents can plan a route from their own base to their enemy's base. Once they reach their destination, they can stage an assault against the opposing side’s base to win the game.

During the match, players can also earn Command Points. The better an individual's performance on the battlefield and the more sectors held by their team, the greater number of points they will have available to them. These can be used to request airdrops with additional vehicles, special weapons, superior gear, friendly AI reinforcements, or strategic advantages such as fast travel and sector scans.

Besides the Warlords multiplayer mode, Update 1.86 also incorporates the ADR-97 weapon pack (which originally served as an official showcase mod) directly into the base game. That means players, but also content creators and server hosts, can make use of this family of weapons without needing to be subscribed to the mod on the Steam Workshop.

Furthermore, the update adds characters to the game with special heads modeled after five prominent Arma developers. These are the result of an R&D project to test Bohemia’s new photogrammetry rig and the related workflow. This system should help to make the process of texturing faces and modeling head shapes more detailed and efficient for Bohemia's future games.

Hmm, TvT isn't something we would normally do and the airdrop thing will just make the AAC redundant.

Could be fun for occasional one off missions though. Hopefully there's a way to use the sector control thing without the TvT element, that we could use

Nice to see the P90 added to the base game. Should have happened a long time ago when it was clear most of the community were incapable of download a single mod from the Workshop. Would be a good weapon for pilots to carry.

The rest of the update… meh.
