Two more exciting maps to take on your journey! Are you ready to pick up the trail? This “retro” level packs which Guerilla Games has entitled “Flash and Thunder” are in honor of the Beach Head and Southern Hills. Both levels were the favorite of the fans in the first game. They have been upgraded and enhanced to portray a technologically updated environment. It boasts of twists and turns that will keep you at the edge of your seats. The gameplay will keep you moving and alert as you dodge attacks from stealthy weapons and opponents.
With the Beach Headmap, unrestrained hand-to-hand battle fills up the limited level as the ISA defends their domain from the marauding Helghast who landed on the Vektan beaches. Water filled craters dot the landscape providing meager cover for the combatants. You’re sure to enjoy advancing stealthily upon your enemies and taking them down. You can also take the higher grounds to take sniper shots.
For the Southern Hills map, the site for the encounters is the central Helghast base on top of the hill. Small structures encircle the base providing excellent sites for close-quarter fighting. The huge compound makes long-range shoot-outs possible and more exciting as shots criss-cross between the structures. This is ideal for large groups where players can number to as many as 32. The enhanced site provides more structures that serve as hiding places.
