Tripwire is pleased to announce that some of the next additions to Rising Storm include the battle of Maggot Hill/Nhpum Ga and (found by modders already) Merrill's Marauders.
Merrill's Marauders, made up of a series of light infantry assault units (lacking heavy weapons), was ordered to take up position at Nhpum Ga and hold it against attacking Japanese forces in April of 1944. Ill equipped for this holding action, the Marauders were put under siege and often time surrounded by the Japanese.
Faced with poor health conditions and limited supplies, the Marauders managed to hold. At the end of the battle, 400 enemy were confirmed dead with 57 dead marauders and hundreds more wounded or incapacitated.
Maggot Hill, like the troop transports, will be joining the Rising Storm beta application in the future. As we move into December, many of the team will be taking time off to visit with friends and family. This means you will see less updates from the team during this holiday season.
