This brand-new update brings a much requested new feature – a brand new map ! The update is named Utz (after General Willibald Utz) and here’s a quick overview of the new features we’ve added for you to enjoy!
There is of course much more happening in the build, so continue reading for more details…
When attacking or defending maps, including of course the NEW Forward Airfield map, you need your weapons to perform! And while we’re not introducing any new weapons in this build or making any major changes, we do have a collection of tweaks to make the weapons feel better, and hopefully be more enjoyable to play with!
Speaking of walking, we have improved the inverse kinematics for the characters making them look much better when turning (banking) and standing on sloped surfaces. So as soon as the Utz Update rolls out, everybody will look much better. Take a look below!
NB: No catcalling at your fellow soldiers please!
A few days ago we wrote an overview post of the new Forward Airfield map that we are introducing in the upcoming Utz update!
Today we will look into a bit more detail on Objective O3 – The Church and the two lines leading there.
The Church itself is a small village church, but the tower still presents you with a great, if rather exposed, point from where you can scout enemy advances.
In the next update to the game named Utz (after General Willibald Utz) we are introducing a new Assault Map codenamed “Forward Airfield”.
This new map represents one of the forward airfields that were built all over Europe before and during the war. Here we have a small village situated on a hill overlooking a river where a piece of nearby farmland has been laid out as an impromptu airstrip. The map is an assault map with 3 main objectives: The Airfield, The village Church and the bridge controlling access to the village. Click the objective names to see more details on each area!
To celebrate the first month of fighting on the Easter(n) front, we’re having a FREE VETERAN MEMBERSHIP WEEKEND this coming weekend as an early Easter Egg for all players.
The event starts Friday the 27th of March at 10:00 US EDT / 15:00 CET and ends Monday the 30th of March at 09:00 US EDT / 15.00 CEST. Click the dates to see when this is in your timezone and note that the European Union switches to Daylight Savings Time in the middle of the event as well JUST to add a pinch of confusion.
NB: As usual if you already have an active Veteran Membership during this weekend, we will extend it with 3 free days! In order to participate in the FREE VETERAN WEEKEND you must have an active account that has played at least one staged or war mission before Friday.
