Feature Friday: New In-Game Map

One of the problems with invading a foreign country is that you don’t really have time to learn the correct pronounciation of all the street names. Also, it’s hard to ask for directions when the local residents are mostly hiding in the cellar — and if you’re really unpopular, they probably took the street signs with them. This is when maps come in handy! And with the Newgarden build, the in-game map will become more useful.

Manstein Feature: New Sounds

That’s right, cool new sounds! Sure, graphics may be the most immediately noticeable aspect of video games (ever wondered why they’re not called “audio games”?), but most players will agree that sound plays a huge role in creating a truly immersive environment. A squadron of Messerschmitts wouldn’t be quite as scary without the roar of engines and the whistling of bombs dropping over your head. The reflex to duck behind cover comes much quicker when you can hear loud gunfire crackling from a nearby window, and bullets ricocheting way too close for your taste.

In the coming Manstein build we will bring you more of this adrenaline-inducing audio assault, with new stereo gunshot effects and new armor model impact sounds.
