Military sim Arma 3 surpasses four million sales

Modern warfare simulator Arma 3 has sold more than four million copies since its 2013 launch.

Developer Bohemia Interactive announced the news via its website, with a blog post announcing a free weekend on Steam.

Additionally, the studio rolled out an infographic explaining what the last few years have been like for the military sim.

"Since its initial release, Arma 3 has received more than 75 free platform updates, introducing additional content, new features, and lots of improvements," the developer wrote.

"As a result, the game is in a better shape than it's ever been. Plus, the Arma 3 community (of more than 4 million players) has been incredibly active as well, with an average playtime per Arma 3 user of 150+ hours, 50,000+ public Steam Workshop items, and over 57,000 registered Units. Take a look at our new infographic poster for a quick overview of Arma 3's splendid journey so far."

The Arma franchise has been a starting point for many big games. Dean Hall's DayZ mod came from Arma 2, while Brendan Greene created the original Playerunknown's Battle Royale mod in that title.
