Map Updates – Mountain Town – Part 2

Just before Manstein was released, we gave you a tour of the eastern half of the new Mountain Town map. Today we visit the other half, where all the vertical action happens. Put on your helmets!

All Aboard

The new train station (also known as O1) is perched on a very steep mountainside, which brings a completely new dynamic to battles. In this area, the fighting can take place on many different levels: riverside below the station, on the train platforms, on the tracks, and of course, on the mountain proper. A good sniper can have a field day up in the heights, if he’s motivated enough to embark on a long hiking trip. However, capturing the station itself can be quite a challenge, as its location forces attackers to either cross open terrain, follow a narrow road… or take the stairs.

At the Crossroads

Approaching from the west, attackers are presented with a choice. Will they take the long way around? Will they follow the tracks? Will they split up in an attempt to create a diversion?

Following the tracks may not be as crazy as it sounds, if you have a good plan! But be careful, these railroad bridges are narrow and mistakes can lead to a disaster. You must also expect fierce fighthing once you enter the station.

    Mah, I don’t like this map, the new mountain looks too much fake to me , the new buildings doesn’t fit with the scenario at all ( too bright textures ).

    You actually have added a train station in the middle of nothing, doesn’t make much sense to me. In the old one at least there was the village there.

    So at the end I prefered the previous one, still I don’t understand why reto focus on “rework” maps that were already looking fine, instead of work on new ones.

    Anyway, I’m really looking forward for the new build. This game is still the best ww2 fps out there.
