Half a decade in the making, Lazarus is a Jungle map set on a volcanic island in Southeast Asia, revolving around RED & BLU's island bases and the archaeological dig site they're fighting over in search of the Fountain of Youth!

From the creative team behind the hit Halloween map Slasher, Lazarus is a compact 90-degree mirrored symmetry King of the Hill map designed for consideration for the upcoming Jungle Update. Originally started as Tachyon in 2011, the map gained a sort of notoriety for never being finished. Years later, we’ve salvaged what we could from Tachyon, ran it through the dev process, and breathed life into it as Lazarus!

Hopefully it’s been worth the wait!
