Arma 3 Creator DLC: CSLA Iron Curtain is out now on Steam

The 1980’s Czechoslovak People’s Army enters the Arma 3 sandbox
PRAGUE, Czech Republic – June 16, 2021 –Publisher Bohemia Interactive and third-party developer CSLA Studio are announcing today the release of theArma 3 Creator DLC: CSLA Iron Curtain. The DLC is available for purchase on Steam for $12.99 USD / €12.99 EUR / £10.99 GBP, and early adopters will receive a 10% discount in the first week of its release.

In the CSLA Iron Curtain Creator DLC, players are taken back to the Cold War era of the 1980’s, and experience what life in Czechoslovakia and its heavily-guarded border with the Federal Republic of Germany could have been like if an armed conflict had ever come between the East and the West.

CSLA (or ČSLA) is an abbreviation for “Československá lidová armáda” in Czech and “Československá ľudová armáda” in Slovak. It refers to the Czechoslovak People’s Army, which were the armed forces of the Czechoslovak Socialist Republic from 1954 until 1990.

Key features of the CSLA Iron Curtain Creator DLC include:

256 km2 terrain – Original landlocked map called “Gabreta” with deep forests, windswept mountains, calm valleys, a railway network, and various military outposts.
3 factions – Cold War era armed forces of the United States and Czechoslovakia, as well as local rebel fighters.
35 weapons (incl. variants) – A mix of classic pistols, rifles, and launchers (with a large variety of weapon attachments), including the FAL and Sa-58 assault rifles, XM177 carbine, and M1911 pistol.
52 vehicles (incl. variants) – Various ground, air, and water vehicles such as the T-72 Main Battle Tank, M113 and OT-62 APCs, and Mi-17 and UH-60 transport helicopters.
19 scenarios – 9 singleplayer scenarios depicting various armed confrontations in the Gabreta region, 1 singleplayer Showcase scenario, and 9 multiplayer scenarios (Zeus, Warlords, co-op, team deathmatch, and more).

CSLA Studio has published a ‘compatibility data pack for non-owners’ via the Steam Workshop, which enables those who do not own the CSLA Iron Curtain DLC to still play on multiplayer servers that make use of its content. However, the DLC’s terrain and singleplayer scenarios remain exclusive to owners of the DLC. Restrictions to the use of non-owned content also apply.

Creator DLC is a label for original Arma 3 projects made by third-party developers and published by Bohemia Interactive. It enables external talent to earn a financial reward while players get to enjoy more quality content. CSLA Iron Curtain is the third Creator DLC project to come out after the release of Global Mobilization – Cold War Germany in April 2019 and S.O.G. Prairie Fire in May 2021.

Developer CSLA Studio will share further development news and updates via their website, Twitter account, and Facebook page. More information about the Arma 3 Creator DLC program can be found on https://arma3.com/dlc/creator.
