OH HAI

I just received the three Alpha Lite invitations, which I have no use for. I figured I could ask here if anyone was interested in testing the single player portion of the alpha.

Dunno how to do this. Let me know your Steam ID and I'll send it to you, I guess.

EDIT: INVITES BE ALL GONE. If anyone has invites to give out, write a reply and I'll edit this post with dem DE-TAILS.

If you buy the Alpha for 30 bucks you don't get the full game when it comes out right?

No, you can't buy the "Alpha". "Alpha" is a state of the development, like "Beta" which is like a pre-release. What they're selling on Steam is the game Arma 3 but since it's not finished yet you can play the Alpha version. When the Beta comes out you'll be playing the Beta not the Alpha anymore without paying anything.

Also I don't know why I'm explaining, look at Steam -.-

Err.. that was exactly what he was asking. No need to be so uptight. To answer the question, yes if you buy the alpha you get access to the Beta and the full game when it's released. Full perks of the different purchases can be seen here!

I also have three alpha lite gifts. If you create an account just to try to grab it, know I'll be giving preference to Giant Bomb community members.

Edit: ALL GONE

@hugh_jazz: Just giving back to the people who have given to me. Maybe that's crazy. Glad you sent a gift to @timoae though!

So one of my friends got the alpha lite gift from another friend and said that it doesn't allow you to play multiplayer. Taking that for true, just a heads up to those asking for one and being disappointed that you can't play online.

@Subjugation I'd love one, been meaning to try it out. Steam id is BPongo.

Sweet. Thanks a lot. I'll be sure to return the favor if I ever have anything.

I would've sent him one, but it seemed both his GB and his Steam accounts are barren wastelands, so I couldn't get an invite out. Garfield518 got in on that shit instead.

@myniceicelife: Yeah, I didn't bold and underline that in my first post, but I figured it didn't matter too much, being a free thing. Anyone I know who is actually interested in this will have pre-ordered, I feel like the Alpha Lite invites are just for system testing and control familiarisation.

#18 Posted by Bollard (5867 posts) -

I would ask for one, but I'mma hopefully be buying the game on Monday so I guess I can wait!

I'm interested in trying it out. I absolutely loved Operation Flashpoint, but haven't played any of the Arma games.

#29 Edited by stooven (33 posts) -

I have Two copies left. PM me if you want one. one now. zero

#30 Posted by Benny (1955 posts) -

Anyone got a copy of this burning a hole in their steam wallet? Could do with testing it on my PC before buying it.

#31 Posted by Kronk (19 posts) -

@benny: What's your Steam ID?

#32 Edited by Benny (1955 posts) -
#33 Edited by Fredddi43 (359 posts) -

#35 Edited by SmasheControllers (2553 posts) -

Anyone got an extra copy? After the quick look I really want to check this game out, Steam ID is ObliteratedTaco.

#36 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1531 posts) -

I also have 3 alpha keys. Steam ID is the same as my GB name. Ditto on what Subs said about being a duder and whatnot. First three who wants a key will get it, everyone else will get an imaginary cookie.

#37 Posted by Fierrze (175 posts) -

Can someone spare a key for me? Steam ID is Fierrze. Thanks!

#40 Posted by insane_shadowblade85 (1531 posts) -

@fierrze: Steam invite sent. It seems I can't send gifts to non friends. I did not know that O_o

@kaibar: I typed in your steam ID but nothing came up. Add me on steam so I can send you a key. Unless you're not real. You are real, right? RIGHT?!

#41 Edited by nasseh (83 posts) -

I've got two extra ones over here. Will gladly gift them away. Steam ID is: bad_boy_4_life_4_ever (don't ask, it's a short and silly story).

I don't know! How can I validate my existence if not through an arbitrary videogame platform??? Anyway, I added you on steam, so please let me know if I exist. Oh, and I guess also the Arma 3 thing.

#43 Posted by Genfuyung (250 posts) -

After seeing the quick look I'd really like to try the game if anyone gets any more codes.

#44 Posted by legion_ai (4 posts) -

I'd love a lite code if anyone has one, I really want to get a feel for the game and hopefully convince friends it's not a game for insane mil-sim crazy people. Steam ID is "mantaray95"

#45 Posted by tunaburn (1891 posts) -

Just a heads up, the alpha lite that this invite gets you only lets you play the tutorial stuff. no multiplayer or anything. gotta but the game for that.

#46 Posted by Genfuyung (250 posts) -

@tunaburn:Yeah Im just interested in seeing how it controls and such. I tried Arma 2 and the idea was interesting but the controls really put me off it.

#47 Edited by Soapy86 (2623 posts) -

I would really like a crack at the Alpha Lite if anyone gets anymore. My Steam ID is the same as my username here.

#48 Edited by VoshiNova (1754 posts) -

@nasseh: I would love access to the alpha lite! I sent request on steam this morning ^_^ steam username:Red2111

I literally just realized my steam username and i.d are not the same.....I feel like an idiot.

Same here about the controls. You're fighting the controls all the time in that game. Let us know of your findings, please.

#50 Edited by Genfuyung (250 posts) -

Anyone elses game look like this?

Google searches seem to indicate its a known bug but it looks like their site is down right now so I cant see what the solution is.
