The team developing Cold Ice Remastered continues deep work on Beta 3. Of course, Beta 2 is available for download, and please join us in our growing Discord server. This month, we want to announce an assortment of exciting new features.

First, we want to thank Bacontsu for our last announcement. We are currently testing wall climbing and parkour effects. WTF do you mean, in GoldSrc? Yes, you heard that right. With Bacontsu's help, we've got wall climbing working in our mod! Maps with large boxes and scalable walls are no match for the HEV suit. As our inner John Woo smiles, a new level of freedom is achieved. We also included damaging rolls and backflips!

Next, we have a big delivery of reskinned original HLDM maps that would make Gabe cry. We took boot_camp, lambda_bunker, doublecross, snark_pit, and substransit, giving them the winter touch. These maps are pure nostalgia in our collective deathmatch hearts. We've renamed them snow_camp, frozen_bunker, doublefrost, ice_pit, and snowtransit. Special thanks to Napoleon and AudioCraZ.

We also found an unreleased map in our archives, which we finished 22 years later—we call this one the mill. The echos of Unreal vibes from the map are intense! And yeah, it's a fully working mill.

Next, we like to share that our primary contributor, Napoleon, has provided a gift for Beta 3. As he uploaded a new player model to our Discord server, he called it "Baer" (and the typo stuck!). Baer is a loveable furry animal that's down with all the frozen weapons provided in Cold Ice Remastered. Beta 3 will include Baer!

Finally, we continue to push hard on our newfound mutators, adding ideas from awesome mods like a topsy-turvy mode that injects fun insanity.

We continue to work on Beta 3 and look forward to releasing it soon. In the meantime, join us on our Discord server to receive our latest updates.

Perhaps the modding gods will bestow such an honor. For now, our goals are 1. Is it fun? Keep going that way. 2. Does it have enough explosions? Probably not, add more. 3. Finally, keep it clean and cool ;)
