Boasting over 100 squares miles of terrain (150km to be precise) and six new scenarios, that’s a pretty hefty bit of content. And we haven’t even talked about the new factions and other bits and bobs. It’s a slice of real-world history that seems suspiciously well-timed given Nolan’s latest film release.

Official Press Release

Arma 3 Creator DLC: Spearhead 1944 Launches Today on Steam
Immerse Yourself in This Historic Experience and Deploy to the Fields of Normandy

Prague, 25th July 2023 – Publisher Bohemia Interactive and third-party developer Heavy Ordnance Works are thrilled to announce today’s release of the major Arma 3 Creator DLC: Spearhead 1944. The launch is being celebrated with a new trailer. This brand-new expansion for Arma 3 will deploy players back to the fields of Normandy, a massive 150 km² terrain, in a historic World War II setting.

In this new Creator DLC, players will be a part of the US First Army’s advance as they attempt to break through the German lines. Take advantage of an array of US weaponry and equipment and traverse the fields and bocage of an all-new Normandy terrain.

The Creator DLC will deliver an immersive and historic military sandbox experience on a scale not seen before in Arma 3.
Players can take part in a multiplayer co-op campaign with up to 24 players, inspired by real events.
