The first official new Rising Storm map coming your way takes you to the beaches of Betio. Even today the effects of the Japanese capture and American assault of this island in the Tarawa lagoon can still be seen. As part of the American force you will be tasked with pushing off the beach and capturing the island, as the Japanese Special Naval Landing Force you will attempt to drive the attacking Americans back into the sea from dug in bunkers and trench lines. Over the coming weeks we will are looking at opening up the beta to gather more game play balance feedback.
Recently I mentioned we were working on fixing up and officially releasing Campaign mode, but that isn't all! Work has also been going into Skirmish mode. What is Skirmish you ask? Our take on co-op style play, featuring a small group of humans versus a team of enemy AI. And we will have this game mode playable in alpha state at PAX as we gather feedback! So stop on by if you are going to be there.
As always we continue to fix bugs and look at ways we can improve the game moving forward. See you on the battlefield!
