Hey everyone,

Before we get stuck into the Developer Briefing, we’d like to let you all know that the team are working on the feedback we received during the closed beta.

We’ll be able to share more once we’ve finished working on what we’ve learned, but we can tell you that weapon audio, troop density and bug fixes feature on that list.

Map update!

In this week’s Developer Briefing we’ll be showing you some updates to our map, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont.

Those that played in the closed alpha last year will recognise this map, but the team have been hard at work behind the scenes adding new levels of detail to Sainte-Marie-du-Mont that open up new tactical options for our players.

Strongpoint overhaul

All strongpoints on the map have received a visual update, with some also receiving micro-terrain updates to add more cover and ambush options for both attackers and defenders.

Building quality update

The buildings that make up Sainte-Marie-du-Mont have received an aesthetic makeover, adding to the immersion for players seeking to garrison, or storm them.

Extra vegetation and cover

Players that find themselves fighting amongst the farmland will now discover the addition of crops in some of the fields.

This opens new options for cover, flanking manoeuvres and ambushes for the bold, or foolish amongst you.

Top Tips

Secure Strongpoint compounds – Use sandbags, tank traps and spawn points to lock down and secure these highly defensible compounds.

Line of sight – Sainte-Marie-du-Mont features many areas with an obscured line of site. Ensure that your unit has as much visibility as possible on potential enemy approaches or risk being flanked.

Fish in a barrel – Buildings offer a strong option for players looking to hole up and defend territory, however, isolated players and units can find themselves cut off and eliminated.

Tanks for that – With more open ground that Hurtgen Forest, Sainte-Marie-du-Mont gives tank crews an opportunity to shine at medium to long ranges. Just watch out for anti-tank soldiers sneaking around your flank!

Field of Battle

Sainte-Marie-du-Mont offers an entirely different battle scenario compared to Hurtgen Forest.

Players will battle across wide open fields, hedgerows, farms and urban environments – a stark difference to the dense woodland of Hurtgen.

Prepare for new challenges to overcome and strategies to employ.
