New Map: Vanguard
New Map: Vanguard

New Russian map ‘Vanguard’ coming at full release on May 23rd 2019!
Battalion 1944’s full release is so close! On May 23rd you’ll be able to play mountains of new content! Today we’re revealing ‘Vanguard’, our new competitive Russian map that also plays as an intense Capture the Flag map.

Make no mistake, the priority of Vanguard was gameplay first. We wanted to totally change the visual experience of this map, so the obvious choice was snow! This is our first snow map, snow gives us a great contrast between the indoors and outdoors. Diving into a building to get out the street feels great as a result of the warm interior lighting and the bitterly cold exterior lighting. Whilst the map does have fog, you may tweak your settings for improved visibility if you prefer playing on a lower quality graphical setting.

The Russian architecture from that time period makes for iconic landmarks within the level, but at the same time we are able to use big blocky shapes to create a well balanced level without awkwardly shaped objects and buildings. Vanguard plays really well as a Wartide map but we had a lot of fun using it on Capture the Flag. The midstreet is a favourite amongst patient snipers in both Wartide and Capture the Flag. Holding the street in the late game is a popular strategy for catching rotating players in the later part of the game.

We are incredibly excited to be this close to release! Soon we’ll officially announce our showmatch and livestream where you can see the map being played live on Monday the 20th of May.

If you have any questions about Vanguard, tweet @Battalion1944 or jump into the official discord and we’ll be happy to discuss them with you

And there’s a lot more to come!
