Laugh at the Arma 3 Karts DLC announcement from a Van Damme-alike doing splits on moving go karts

by: Randy -

Bohemia Interactive's Arma series is one of the scariest military simulators on the planet. And by "one of the scariest," I can't even think of what the second-scariest military simulator on the planet is. Arma is that scary. So, in the spirit of many announcements made today, the announcement of Arma 3 Karts comes as somewhat of a surprise. I imagine this Karts DLC will carry on the hyper-realism Arma is known for. The Karts DLC ad below even pays homage to the legendary Jean Claude Van Damme's now-legendary "Volvo splits" commercial.

“Since we’re already in the zombie business with DayZ, we felt the next logical expansion would be to take on karting”, said Jay Crowe, Creative Director on Arma 3. “Our sandbox could not be called complete without karts, and thus we set ourselves the goal to recreate this pure form of racing. Welcome to Arma 3's World of Karts: drive / overtake / win.”
