Each week, gamers around the world log onto digital distribution platform Steam, to get their latest gaming fix, and every week, Player Attack lets you know which games were the most popular.
It’s an all-new #1 this week, but not one that really surprises us. Arma 3 Apex brings so much new content to the shooter that we can’t believe it’s being offered as a simple expansion rather than its own game. To start off with, there’s a new faction, 13 new weapons, and an entire wardrobe full of new uniforms and gear. There’s also 10 new vehicles thrown in, and an additional co-op campaign and bonus end-game multiplayer content. Plus there’s an entire new island to explore – 100 square kilometres of lush South Pacific landscape to get amongst!
Obviously, as it’s an expansion, you do need a copy of Arma 3 in order to play, but if you’re interested and don’t have it yet, may we suggest checking out the Bohemia Interactive Bundle? It contains 25 items, including (obviously) Arma 3 and Apex, but also a whole stack of content for the original Arma and Arma 2, and a few entirely unrelated games. Remember, people have gone to jail to make Arma 3 the best game it can be, so you really should at least check it out.
