Arma 3 Steam Branches

Overview

Arma 3 is distributed as several branches on Steam.

These branches are accessible by opening the application Properties in Steam client. In the BETAS tab, you'll find a drop-down menu with publicly available branches. Some branches require an access code to be input before appearing the list. Those codes are shared via channels such as Twitter and the forums when appropriate.

After selecting a branch, Steam client will begin downloading the differences in data. Note that Steam client does not allow you to maintain multiple parallel branches on your hard drive. Our Game Updater tool does allow this for certain branches.
