Arma 3 impressions from under a bush | Destructoid

Destructoid: "If you want to try out the game yourself, but don't want to put money down on the alpha, then you could always befriend someone who has already taken the plunge, and get them to send you an alpha lite invite. This gives you the ability to check out the showcase missions and the editor, though it lacks all the multiplayer fun." (ArmA 3, PC)

have you seen the amount of inputs for Arma III?

It will not work or it will not be half the game on console.

I don't know...

After playing around with it for a while I noticed that Arma 3 readily accept X-Box 360 controller. Plug one in and all the appropriate icons changed to show the X Box icons - just like what you would see from a multiplatform game. Even the infantry controls feel nice with the controller. The command system now feels more streamlined...enough for a controller only experience. Although you can't change modify the controllers yet and you can't do anything in the editor with the controller except for accessing the system menu.

Since BIS have expressed of bringing the Arma series to consoles and their first foray into the console market last year with the Carrier Command: Gaea Mission reboot...they might surprise everyone when Arma 3 is finally launch. CDP announced The Witcher 2 for the X Box 360 months after the PC launch (they have hinted their console interest during the PC development phase, too).

@ Somebody, yes controls are labelled for a 360 controller I noticed this aswell.

I think controllers are fantastic for flying as a keyboard and mouse is crap in the air but if you are using a controller for flying you still need a keyboard for the multitude of commands.

How will you give orders with a pad? switch ammo types, co ordinate the mobile artillery? Arma uses literally the entire keyboard so if they managed to do it it would be an extremely impressive feat but the game would miss many controls obviously unless they allow use with a mini keyboard attached to the controller.

Free Keys
Man go buy the Got Dam Alpha which will include upgrade to full game for $39.99

It's well worth it! Arma 3 is a MASTERPIECE!!!

Now if you have a week PC and concerns about running Arma 3 then OK get a free key.....see how it goes then save money for upgrades cause Arma 3 is AAA+++

This is only the Alpha, it's just gonna get WAAAAY better during the next 4 years if they give it the same support like Arma 2.
