We’re approaching the eight years since hardcore military simulation game Arma III launched on PC, and it’s still getting new content to fuel player’s war game fantasies. The latest DLC pack is called S.O.G. Prairie Fire, and it will be set during the Vietnam War. It will feature a brand new 300 km2 map, four factions, and all of the weapons and vehicles you could want to fill this sandbox shooter.
Prairie Fire is a ‘creator’ DLC – a label publisher Bohemia Interactive is using to promote add-on packs created by third-party studios – in this case, Savage Game Design. Previous entries under this label have included 2019’s Global Mobilization – Cold War Germany, and CSLA Iron Curtain which is due out sometime this year.
These can be thought of as a step above paid mod projects, an example of which would be what Firaxis did when they hired Long War Studios (the creators of the excellent XCOM mod The Long War) to make Long War 2 specifically for the launch of XCOM 2 back in 2016.
