The introduction of the new rendering engine in version 8.0 has enabled us to rework our maps to make them appear more colourful and richer in detail than ever. However, due to the huge amount of maps we have in the game, this transition couldn’t come about overnight for the entire map pool. We therefore decided to split up the process and progressively release the refurbished versions of our classic playing fields in batches of four at a time.
After having already taken care of Himmelsdorf, Mines, Arctic Region, Westfield and some others with the release of 8.0, we’re now happy to be able to present the next batch of maps that are getting a facelift for the upcoming 8.1 update. This time it’ll be some of our biggest fan-favorites, with Abbey, Dragon’s Ridge, El Halluf and Province.
But, we don’t want to just tell you about it! We actually want to show you what a masterful job our level designers have done, and so we’ve put together a small video review depicting the modified maps with their new look. See for yourself what kind of a transformation these popular maps have undergone, and how they will recapture your imagination for an even more immersive experience!
Now, isn’t that something? The wait has been well worth it.
We hope you’re as excited as we are for the upcoming 8.1 update, Commanders!
