  • Toaster: Destroy an enemy Universal Carrier or halftrack with a full load of passengers.
The new map "Fallen Heroes" is a brutal combined arms battle set on the iconic "Red Square" in downtown Stalingrad. Developed by Tripwire for the initial release as the set piece Russian counterpart for the popular Konigsplatz map, the map didn't make the cut and was shelved for the past three years. Some months ago the map was passed off to award winning community mapper Kevin "Dr. Guppy" Butt to complete. Resurrected by a fan, for the fans, this excellent addition to the RO map line up is being released for free with this update for anyone with RO:Ostfront.

you guys figured it out really fast to hide the "view game info" when you all were testing to not let too many figure out the addition of the new map :D

everything looks great....cant wait to see servers filling up with players for the new map and the achievements!!!!!

Had some problems with the image rescaling on the front page.

My favorite map for playing Sapper class.

So instead of official announce of the new game players receive this useless update...
THX a lot !

We are getting a brand new map for FREE that is a pretty good update any other company would have trying to get more cash out of us.

"Whack-a-Mole: for killing tank commanders with his head out of the turret hatch."

Looking forward to this one :p
Wish there were more objective-based acheivements though, would fit in with my cap-ho' playstyle :D

Still, the fact TWI still updates the game after almost three (!) years is completely amazing, thank you guys, you rock!
