Darkest Hour Updates


As you should be able to see from the new pics, the Darkest Hour team have been hard at work on new maps and new features for the mod. Click on the picture to head on over to the DH website for all the detail - but here are the highlights:

The maps so far confirmed as "in":

  • DH-Bois Jacques: GIs defending against SS CA assault
  • DH-Brecourt: US Airborne attack FJ/Heer artillery position
  • DH-Carentan: US Airborne vs Fallschirmjager
  • DH-Foy: GIs defending against German CA assault
  • DH-Ginkel Heath: British Airborne vs SS outside Arnhem
  • DH-Hill 108: GIs assault German bunker position
  • DH-Raids: Fallschirmjager/heer defending against British CA Assault
  • DH-Stavelot: GIs defending against German CA assault
  • DH-Stoumont: CA German vs US
And the cool new/upgraded features:

  • HEAT rounds from Bazookas/Panzerschrecks will now penetrate walls and hurt people behind them
  • Backblast from Bazookas and Panzerschrecks will now hurt - it burns us!
  • Reloads for the AT weapons have been enhanced for extra teamplay benefits
  • Likewise on the Officer-Radioman interaction
  • A whole bunch of bug fizes
  • And a load of tweaks to the existing weaponry
No doubt there will be more in further announcements - for the full list, click on the image above and head for the DH website!

DH is shaping up to be awesome! Eh...just a couple of questions, are the Volksgrenadiers going to be included in the next release ? Can you drive the Kubelwagens in Juno Beach ?

Yes Volks grenadiers are in the release, They are not called that though in game, They are Parka and Smock Heer.

No the Kublewagon will not be drive able on Juno Beach. It was just added for Screen shots. But it is in the release and is drivable. (just to alay any fears it will not be anywhere near a DH ClownCar as some may think)

Stay tuned for Next weeks update for more info on the coming release.
