The Arma 3 beta has been released.

If you were part of the Arma 3 alpha you'll get access to the beta by downloading the automatic update on Steam. Otherwise, you can buy the beta, which includes the full retail game when it releases later this year, from Steam or the Bohemia Interactive Store, where it costs £29.99.

The beta version of the PC tactical military shooter includes the 20 km² island of Stratis, 20 weapons, 18 vehicles, three factions, eight showcase missions, four multiplayer scenarios, four challenges, the scenario editor and modding support.

The full game will include a massive Mediterranean sandbox of over 290 km², over 40 weapons and over 20 vehicles.
