Map update: Mountain Village

Map update: Mountain Village

The level design team has been hard at work revamping the Mountain Village map and the time has come to share with you the fruits of our toil. This time around, the landscape and train station area has gotten the biggest (polygon) face lifts. Read on for the juicy specifics!

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

A good map comes from lots of testing and iteration. We have listened to your feedback, and we have also tweaked the map to be a step closer to our original vision. The entire train station area has gotten an overhaul, including new buildings, props and interiors. The railway has been rebuilt, and the very landscape it sits on top of is more lush and welcoming – or should we say – less intimidating. Such a transformation affects the nearby settlements, as can be seen for instance along the connecting attack lines E and D.

Patton Weapon Update online

After rolling out new tanks, now it is time for a few weapon updates, and a lot of tweaks behind the scenes. Fresh from the front line you are now able to buy and equip captured enemy weapons! Including weapons from none other than the Russians.

The Germans has managed to capture a few weapons from the East and after giving them their new (long) German names they are making their way to the front. After getting wind of this, the Americans immediately pursued their Soviet allies to provide them with weapons as well for field-testing. The German engineers have also begun supplying M24 Frag Sleeve grenades to the front. So these are now available as well. On the same note all grenades have been tweaked and differentiated a bit more, so they now have different strengths and weaknesses.

The weapons rotating below are the following:

  • PPSh-41 aka ‘Maschinenpistole 717(r)’
  • M24 Frag Sleeve (Germans only) – Slightly shorter throw range, but does more damage as the M24 Handgrenades
  • Degtyarev DP-28 aka ‘Maschinengewehr 120(r)’
  • RGD-33 aka ‘Handgranate 337(r)’
  • TM-35 mines
  • PMK-40 mines

Weapon Personalization

This update also introduces the first step in ‘Weapon Personalization’ where you can buy personalized weapons or personalize the weapons you already own. This first iteration introduces the G43 and the Garand semi-auto rifles, with more to follow in the coming weeks.
