Arma 3 dev Bohemia donates one million Czech koruna to charity
One million Czech koruna made from sales of the Arma 3 Karts DLC is being donated to the Czech Red Cross.
Bohemia have announced that Arma 3 Karts – an April Fools’ joke that later sprang to life as a test of Bohemia’s approach to DLC that wouldn’t fracture the playerbase – sold sufficiently well that they’re donating a million Czech koruna from its sales to charity. Which isn’t quite as big as it sounds when you convert it to the other currencies – it’s about £29,000 GBP or $50,000 USD – but is still a fairly hefty sum.
It’s also pretty damn good when you consider that Arma 3 Karts itself is being sold for £1.19, or as part of the Arma 3 DLC Bundle (which includes the upcoming Helicopters and Marksmen DLC) for £16.99. If this is only a portion of the sales, then I suspect it sold really rather well.
Arma 3 Karts is out now. The Helicopter DLC is due out in September, while the Marksmen DLC is due out in early 2015. You can have a gander at this news item for more details on those two.
