Tried to film it but frames took a hit while recording at Ultra settings... so some screenshots instead... it's HUGE, and I see a lot of targets, ambush sights, and future battles as I tour the island for my new home location.





























oh, watch for powerlines:

Awesome!

I also snapped a few pictures of it, hope you don't mind me adding them - It's a beautiful island.

Under "Properties" on ArmA 3, there's a tab called betas. Select the development build option and close.

Should start to download automatically.

Wow. Looks fantastic. Lots of open terrain that might lead to some great tank battles.

I am very impressed. Just did a quick flight around the island and got smooth FPS (40+) at high settings with 2.5 km visibility. Looks fantastic and offers a lot of ground for interesting action.
