What's the best way to cool down on a hot summer's day? Ice cream? Ice-cold pepsi? A $600 BTU aircon unit? All viable options. But have you ever thought about beta testing a Battlefield 1 map covered in snow? Probably not.
If you're too stubborn to let your $1000 CPU-running radiator sit idle as the warm days pass by, the least you can do is ironically warm it up by rendering the chilly climes of Lupkow Pass - the latest map to arrive on the Battlefield 1 CTE.
Part of 'The Name of the Tsar' expansion pack due to release this September, this particular map is now available for rage-inducing matching on the game's dedicated testing servers. if you'd like to get an early look at the new playing field, you know where to go.
Focusing less on vehicular combat than most other maps, the dense snow of Lupkow Pass means there's only 1 plane and a few horses available for the fray. For the most part, you're going boots on the ground. We haven't heard enough of that lately.
It's a mountain region, essentially. So if you're willing to get shot through rocks with incorrectly assigned collision detection, you're free to do so. Otherwise, maybe wait until at least August to play the final version - if you're a Premium member, anyway.
