Tripwire recently held another mapping and modding contest, the winners of which have featured in a new Counterattack Map Pack. Available for the bargain price of absolutely no money whatsoever, this fan-made DLC contains:
- Bridges of Druzhina - features asymmetrical gameplay with the Soviets attacking across open country supported by a single tank, through a destroyed city and on to the final bridge.
- Cold Steel - a lethal warren of huge factory buildings, creating both longer-range fire-fights and sudden, brutal close-quarters battles.
- Gumrak Station - a re-imagining of an old favorite from the original Red Orchestra, as the Germans assault through trenches and a small village to the railway station of the title.
Since a picture is worth a thousand words, this new trailer makes me wish I billed by wordcount.
Finally, Tripwire has a challenge for any aspiring arcitects. "If you've got a knack for making maps, the recently announced "Banzai" Mapping Contest for Rising Storm is in full swing," reads their latest press release. "With over $25,000 in cash on the line, the competition is sure to get fierce. You can find more information on the contest here."
