Finally Valve has released the second day of updates leading to the final Scout Update next Tuesday! Today was the release of two new maps. One is an arena map and the other is a control point map.
The first new map is Arena_Watchtower. Here’s the description from Valve about how this new map will be:
“An Arena map that plays unlike any of Valve’s Arena maps, with a heavy focus on vertical space and long, open sight lines. Control of the central building is a key decision that teams must wrestle over. More Sniper friendly than most Arena maps, it’s a perfect complement to the Scout update. Batter up!”
The second map that Valve is releasing will be cp_junction. Here’s the description from Valve about how this map will be:
“A Gravel-Pit style map that the community has been heckling us to include for months. Junction is a sharp contrast to Watchtower. It’s full of tight spaces and short sight lines, which create combat opportunities dominated by ambushes and explosive weaponry.”
