Arma 3 announced the upcoming new Creator DLC titled S.O.G. Prairie Fire , which brings players back to the Vietnam War. Players can expect a historic military sandbox experience offered on a scale not experienced in a video game.

The new DLC is expected to be released sometime in the second quarter of this year and priced at $22.99. If you’re interested, you can add it to your wishlist on Steam.

For new players, a Creator DLC is new content developed by a third-party entity but still published by the developer, Bohemia Interactive in this case. The goal of a Creator DLC is to deliver more quality content into the game. However, unlike your typical DLCs, the Creator DLC is optional and does not have any game updates. If you've finished the official DLCs, Creator DLCs are one way to keep you entertained.

S.O.G. Prairie Fire

The name S.O.G. Prairie Fire actually refers to MACV-SOG or the Military Assistance Command, Vietnam – Studies and Observations Group. This was a US Special Forces unit formed in 1964. It used to conduct covert operations in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia until its deactivation in 1972.

This task force plays a major role in the upcoming Creator DLC. Developer Savage Game Design revealed that to make sure the content can offer the experiences of the soldiers more accurately, they collaborated with actual US Special Forces veterans who served in the MACV-SOG. The studio even had Vietnamese advisors.
