ArmA III pre-orders start; buyers can play alpha version now

Bohemia Interactive's long awaited third game in their military shooter series, ArmA III, is now available for pre-order on Steam. However, the folks who jump in early to get the game can start playing an early alpha version of ArmA III right now via the pre-order.

The Steam ArmA III page shows a regular version of ArmA III on sale for $32.99, which lets users get access to the alpha, beta and full game, The $49.99 Digital Deluxe version has that same content but will add some extras when the final version of ArmA III is released. It also lets people download a free version of ArmA: Cold War Assault, the first game from Bohemia Interactive (previously known as Operation Flashpoint).

So what do you get to play in the alpha version of ArmA III right now? A trailer shows the playable content contained in the alpha, which has several "showcase" missions; a ground infantry mission, a SCUBA mission, a ground vehicles mission and a helicopter showcase. Alpha players can send in their comments and feedback to the development team so they can get a better idea of how to move on with development of the game into its beta and final versions.

The fact that it's called "ArmA 3 Alpha" on steam doesn't show a good image.

You'd think Valve would up their service quality after the recent atrocities like WarZ.

But it is an Alpha. The problem WarZ had was selling itself as a complete and full game (with tons of features nowhere near being in the game).

Pretty cool that you get access to the game throughout all of its development cycle just for pre-ordering. I'm not a fan of the series, but it must be exciting for those that are.
