Ace of Spades launches free holiday DLC21 Dec 2012
Jagex is launching new DLC for their recently release block shooter Ace of Spades.
The new content includes new maps, a new game mode and a new weapon. The new Capture the Flag mode is playable on the original maps as well as the new map additions. A seasonal weapon has also been added, the Snow Cannon.
Arash Amini, Ace of Spades Producer added:
“Our first DLC is just the beginning, over the next few months we have a ton of new content planned, from new maps and weapons, to new classes and game modes. Gamers have put their faith in us and shown us that Ace of Spades is a game they want to play, so it’s up to us now to continue to improve the experience and create compelling new content to enjoy. We think that this DLC really packs a punch and we are particularly excited to include Heisville, our first community designed map. We know our community are extremely creative and we are keen to harness their creativity more and more with future updates.”
Details of all the new content are as follows:
Heisville – A World War 2 themed map which won our community map competition. Dodge from hedge to hedge as you avoid the sniper fire from the town of Heisville in a battle to control the town.
Block Ness – Battle around a large lake which is dominated by a frozen monster in the middle. Are you going to snipe from the trees around the outside or launch a marine attack from the lake?
Arctic Base – If you were fighting a super-villain in his hidden arctic base… this is what you would want to see. The best thing with this map is, that there are 16 enemies to kill, not just one!
Castle Wars – One for the RuneScape fans, Castle Wars map is based on the popular capture the flag mini-game from the world’s most popular adventure game. Two giant fortresses face each other across the battlefield. You’ll need to work closely with your team so when you are scaling the enemies walls, they are not sneaking into your castle.
New Game Mode:
Capture the Flag – The classic game mode where the objective is to capture the opposing team’s flag and bring it safely back to your home base.
Snow Cannon – A cannon which not only acts like a gun, but also can be used to create ice blocks.
