RSS Battlegroup42 1.8 - New Maps #2

Welcome to another news update from the Battlegroup42. We will continue to show off new content for version 1.8, and focus again on the new maps in the release. But there are also some new and quite spectacular models we are sure your would love to play around with. Saying that, you can expect the new release of BG42 soon - though we don´t have a release date yet. But now let´s have a look on our new stuff!

Posted by on


In our last news we presented you many new maps mainly done by our mapper Yamamoto. Some of you might have thought - hell, what about Sarge Surfat? Yes, he has been very busy with his job but that don´t mean that he has nothing to contribute to the 1.8 release! There are five new maps coming out of this workshop: "Myitkyina" is about the taking of the airfield of the same name in Burma in May 1944 by "Merril's Marauders", an American long range penetration special operations unit. "Monte Battaglia" is a conversion of the map from zara5ustra's Road-to-Rome map pack, depicting the bloody battles on this mountain in October of 1944. "Snowy Park" is again a self created map, inspired by the legendary multiplayer-deathmatch map in Medal of Honor Allied Assault (MoHAA). Another conversion is well known, too: "Hellendoorn" was the map which EA/Dice once used to convince the community to buy the Secret Weapons addon for Bf 1942.


The last map is for you sea dogs out there: "Wolfpack" is about the costly convoy battles in the North Atlantic. On 1000 nautical miles there's no land, only the cold, green sea where the enemy can lure behind the next fog bank. Submarine hunters on sea and in the air on one side, submarines and torpedo bombers on the other. As a special gimmick you'll find an American M-class blimp and a Wickes-class destroyer on that map! The blimp is a joint-venture by TerrorDuck (basic model), Bommel, Kraetzer and Senshi (cockpit, unwrap) and Sarge Surfat (texture), the destroyer was created by Cabrio. Again, most of the new maps have bot support, and "Hellendoorn" and "Wolfpack" also have an Objective Mode.


As always, we are looking for talented modders of all kinds to join our team, especially for our new standalone version further details of which will be announced in the coming months. If you are interested, just visit our forum at www.battlegroup42.de..

Those "Japs" included my family, and I don't think I would call it "fighting" so much as "being slaughtered by." The only real "fighting" would be between the Chinese Nationalists and Chinese Communists, along with the other assorted warlords.

Damn, looks great. And, quit it with the race discussions. That does not belong here or anywhere on this site. Learn to tolerate other people.
