The airfield map (which we previously discussed in part 2 here and part 1 here) is now about to become a more interesting place to fight. For the next build, we have tweaked it a little to improve the gameplay experience. Come and see what we’re adding in the upcoming Oster build!

Introducing the Nissen Huts

[dropcap2]T[/dropcap2]he main novelty we will be introducing to the airfield is a new type of building, the Nissen hut, named after the engineer who invented them, Peter Norman Nissen. These very recognizable half-cylinders of corrugated steel were used by the British military as a cheap, transportable and quickly assembled housing solution. You will find them where the old barracks used to stand, on attack lines B and D. For variety, we have also kept some of the original red buildings. Our level designer has also been creative with the furniture. For example, there is now a briefing room at D2.

We have also moved the radio at B2 indoors, so that capturing it can now no longer be termed a suicide mission. Unless you walk in through the wrong door, of course.
