Arena Mode & new maps (Lumberyard + Ravine)

August 19, 2008

This new mode reminds me of rl dodgeball!

“Arena features smaller maps that play out in shorter periods of time. The round ends once one team has no players left in the arena, or when the central capture point has unlocked and been captured.”


“When the capture point becomes active after 60 seconds, multiple entrances open up into the central control point, which becomes the focus of the fighting as the match nears its end.”

Two new maps, Lumberyard and Ravine, were developed specifically for this new mode. I guess Valve has been taking everyone’s comments about the lack of maps seriously. Well, Granary, and the Badlands maps have also had their centre points re-worked, so that they can be played with this new mode.
