BattleGrounds2 is getting ready to release its first BETA, to mark the occasion we have put together a media release for all our fans and potential players. Many thanks to Forlorn Hope for creating a gameplay trailer featuring footage taken from some of our testing sessions, the trailer is a little under 3minutes long and weighs in at 77mb. Download mirrors below.
The mapping team has also been very busy of late, we have 6 new maps that will be featured in our upcoming release, foothills, maricopa, mvalley, snowlake2, kingsmountain & pillage. These new maps provide a great deal of diverse gameplay, we have focused on making the game more exciting by creating maps where the gameplay varies drastically from map to map. Screenshots of these maps can be found below.
We have updated a couple of our player models, introducing the American Frontiersman & the British Jager.
We are very pleased with the work what we have accomplished since 0.17, BG2 1.0b is currently in the final stages of testing, if all goes well we will be releasing this coming Saturday the 3rd of February. The team would like to thank all our fans and everyone who has been a part of BattleGrounds to date, we hope to see you on the battlefield this Saturday.
