Jagex Games Studio has launched the first free downloadable content (DLC) update for the recently released, Ace of Spades. The first DLC update for the videogame is available now and includes four new maps, a new gameplay mode and a new weapon.
This free pack brings the map count up to ten, adding new sandbox environments for players to create and destroy. The DLC also add the classic Capture the Flag multiplayer mode, which will be available across original and new maps, as well as a brand new winter themed weapon: the Snow Cannon.
Commenting on the DLC release, Arash Amini, Ace of Spades Producer said, “We’ve been overwhelmed by the incredible reaction to Ace of Spades. Featuring in the Top Sellers list since launch day is a fantastic achievement for our first Steam release and is a real endorsement of the game. But we are keen to give players even more content so we are delighted to announce our new content pack which promises to further enhance the Ace of Spades experience just in time for Christmas.”
Amini continued, “Our first DLC is just the beginning, over the next few months we have a ton of new content planned, from new maps and weapons, to new classes and game modes. Gamers have put their faith in us and shown us that Ace of Spades is a game they want to play, so it’s up to us now to continue to improve the experience and create compelling new content to enjoy. We think that this DLC really packs a punch and we are particularly excited to include Heisville, our first community designed map. We know our community are extremely creative and we are keen to harness their creativity more and more with future updates.”
The full list of features for this first Ace of Spades DLC pack is as follows:
Heisville – A World War 2 themed map which won our community map competition. Dodge from hedge to hedge as you avoid the sniper fire from the town ofHeisvillein a battle to control the town.
BlockNess- Battle around a large lake which is dominated by a frozen monster in the middle. Are you going to snipe from the trees around the outside or launch a marine attack from the lake?
Arctic Base – If you were fighting a super-villain in his hidden arctic base… this is what you would want to see. The best thing with this map is, that there are 16 enemies to kill, not just one!
Castle Wars – One for the RuneScape fans, Castle Wars map is based on the popular capture the flag mini-game from the world’s most popular adventure game. Two giant fortresses face each other across the battlefield. You’ll need to work closely with your team so when you are scaling the enemies walls, they are not sneaking into your castle.
New Game Mode:
Capture the Flag – The classic game mode where the objective is to capture the opposing team’s flag and bring it safely back to your home base.
Snow Cannon – A cannon which not only acts like a gun, but also can be used to create ice blocks.
