today is an interesting day for Cold War Crisis. Since the release of the mod, numerous third-party add-ons have been added to our ModDB page. The mod itself features some units (and other assets) created not by the core-team (e.g. the AH-6).
But today is special: We're proud to release the first add-on with patch 470! Grab it using the launcher or via manual download as usual.
This add-on, created by long-time supporters emperor, Batja, maximka123 and sukhoi, is based around a new game-mode called "Get Rolling!" (GR!) presented on three new maps [these are: Get Rolling! (Afternoon), Get Rolling! (Day) and Get Rolling! (Day, Snow)]. On these maps for 2 to 4 players, the Soviet player(s) has/have to destroy the US base, whereas the US player(s) has/have to defend it. There's no construction phase, no resource gathering, just non-stop-action.
Update: When playing on the GR! maps, make sure the northern position is taken by USSR player(s), while the southern position is taken by US player(s). Follow-up patch 469 shows which positions are intended for the two factions in the map-selection screen.
Uniquely, GR! also features three new units. The first two are high-quality remakes of the T-80 series, in the U and UK version.
These two tanks appear (only) on the three Get Rolling! maps. The third unit is an addition to the Soviet anti-tank force, namely the heavy assault helicopter Mi-28A.
The "Havoc" is featured in the three GR! maps, too. Furthermore, since the CWC-Team really thinks this add-on is pretty nice, Skleni has created a new single-player mission amply called "Latest Guardian" prominently featuring the helicopter.
Finally, GR! also contains new voice samples for many Soviet units. Both infantry (rifleman, machine gunner, sniper, anti-air) and vehicles (T-72, T-80 series and Mi-28A) have received new, better samples.
As you can see, that's quite some content! We wish to congratulate the four creators for their very nice addition and hope that you enjoy it as much as we did.
