Altis is currently on the Dev Build which you can access through steam. Altis will be on the stable build on September 12th.

You need to switch from stable to dev builds of the game. No need to buy anything, it tells you how to do in the stickys.

Oh I see, I dont have the dev biuld so I cannot see it on the stable build. Got it. Thanks for the help.

I've tried this but Steam does not give me the option to choose "development- development build' under the Beta tab. Where it says: "Select the beta you would like to opt into:" the only choise given is:

"NONE - Opt out of all beta programs"

So what now?

Go make a support ticket or something. It is there for me and everyone else.

Problem solved. I had to go to "Steam - Settings - "Account" tab. And change my Beta participation to "Steam beta update". Then when I go to arma 3 beta in library, click properties, select betas tab and switch to development built like everyone else :-)

Advice: do NOT switch out of dev branch until AFTER the launch... if you switch back to stable branch too early, it'll download the pre-launch stable branch, THEN download the launch content which you would have already had if you'd stayed on dev branch...

To be clear: the workshop has missions, not mods. You can subscribe to all the great missions people make there. Some of them are really amazing.

For mods: You can get mods from Armaholic, BIS forums, or Play With Six. I personally use the Arma3Sync launcher to play the game with certain mods enabled.

Here is a video on the basics of installing mods. It doesn't cover using launchers or Play With SIx, but it will show you the basics, which you should learn first.
