The Oster build is drawing near, but there are still cool new features we haven’t shown you! Besides introducing Mechanized Recon ATs, supply crates on cars, new weapons, a new career selection menu, the Oster build also features several interesting new map tweaks.
We’ve already covered the new buildings you will find on the Airfield map, but now comes something that was widely requested by our community: redesigned access points on the Hill Skirmish and Forest Skirmish maps. Our level design team took on the challenge of finding a way to reduce the amount of spawncamping in skirmish battles without having to completely re-write the existing game mode. The result is a combination of new buildings, new landscaping, new terrain props and rearranged spawn points, which should make it much less comfortable for lazy campers to just sit around the access points, waiting to shoot enemies as they appear.
So we’ve talked about mobile supply crates, new weapons, a new career selection menu and new map features. How about a little something for the strategy game now? Generals, good news: you will have a new toy at your disposal! When Oster hits the servers you will be able to unlock 3-star Mechanized Recon Assault Teams. Just how awesome are they? Read on to find out!
Yes, that is correct, we are talking about vehicles equipped with first-aid / ammo boxes. In the Oster build, Motorized Infantry squads will deploy with these goodies. So not only can you look forward to new machine guns, more career flexibility and new buildings, but on top of that you will soon be able to heal and resupply your friends… if you manage to reach them through the storm of bullets.
As you might have heard rumours of, a new antitank weapon is making its way from the factories to the fields of battle!
The German panzerschreck!
The Panzerschreck is closer in functionality to the American Bazooka and with new addition we have changed how anti-tank weapons are unlocked.
With spring upon us, everybody is readying themselves for new offensives and new equipment is rolling out of the assembly lines.
The German engineers have been hard at work and produced a strange new vehicle. US spotters have noticed it zipping across the landscape, too fast to be a tank but bulkier than your average Kübelwagen. It looks nasty.
BUT the ingenuity of America’s automotive industry has not melted with the last snow of winter. The Allies also have a new dog in their hunting pack, as this German patrol is just discovering.
