Arma 3 Laws of War DLC is the debut project of newly established Bohemia Interactive Netherlands team I joined. It tackles many unorthodox themes, including war crimes, role of non-combatants on the battlefield and long-term effects of fighting. Apart from two focused showcase scenarios, these topics are presented in singleplayer mini-campaign “Remnants of War”.
None of previous DLCs featured a campaign, instead they packed only one or two showcases or multiplayer modes. The reason to deviate from this pattern was purely personal – after spending years working on systems like Zeus, Arsenal or Eden, I wanted to return back to mission-making and see if I can still tell a story.
The result exceeded all our expectations, and the campaign helped the project to become the best received Arma 3 DLC.
