We are back with another media release, and this time it's an updated version of the classic TO: Crossfire map, Anvil! This popular bombing objective map has been completely remade in the UDK with next-gen assets and lighting.
Originally designed by Spin, the building and completion of this map has been taken over by Matt Lefevere, with our talented team of artists creating new content, led by art director Peter Aldred.

Matt and the team have really brought this level to life. In comparison to the version shown in the August Autumn News Release, one can really see how much it has improved!
We hope you enjoy the pictures and look forward to playing this level as much as we do!
We have also made great headway on weapon animations thanks to several new animators we've recruited after last month's weapon media release. Headed by lead animator Alex "TheCounter", with additional animations from Serg "comicsserg" and Timothy "sikorsky14", we have been producing beautiful animations at a quick pace for in-game coding.
Adam "drakklord" our lead coder has not only been working on our weapons system, but has been polishing up a dynamic music system together with lead music artist John "JTMarrin".
We have bulked up the team with a handful of additional programmers to help push our progress further and faster.
The overall progression of Tactical Assault has moved very fast over the last 2 months, with the team breaking some very big milestone plans and bottleneck issues, where we now feel we are "Over the Hill" and looking down the other side.
Just to finish off with some more amazing art, here's what some of our artists have been up to recently! Enjoy.
We have a lot left to do, make no mistake, so continue to spread the word of our project and enjoy the ride through our development.
December media release
For a festive holiday treat, we have a highly anticipated media release planned and currently being worked on that should certainly put a smile on your faces!!
