Arma 3 Linux port updated to Arma 1.64

By - | Views: 22,606

The experimental port of Arma 3 [Steam] for Linux has been updated today and we now have the much more up to date Arma 3 1.64.

Linux & Mac users can now try #Arma3 v1.64, including Apex (thx @virtualprog)! More on these experimental ports:

This should also allow Linux players to play the Apex expansion/DLC, as the last time the port was updated was before the Apex expansion was released.

Sadly, it seems my texture issue is still around. Most of the time I can't select higher than "Standard" for textures. It seems this is an issue with the game being 32bit, although a 64bit version is being worked on for Windows. They haven't confirmed if 64bit support will come to the Linux port, as noted in the FAQ.

It's a truly massive update and it won't be possible to list all the changes here. You can find out more about the Arma 3 1.64 update here.
