  • Amerish

    For all who missed it, here is gameplay in the continent "Amerish" which is set to drop within "a week or two"

    Interesting... Honestly expected to see more trees. To me, it looks a LOT like the falkland islands. (Recently made into a PR map)

    Re: Amerish

    That is disappointing. I was hoping big jungle cover - claustrophobia. Very difficult terrain for vehicles.

    With Esamir being a big vehicle map I assumed Amerish would be more of a infantry-centric map. (as a jungle environment would be)

    Think Brazilian rainforest with a smattering of thinner mountain jungles up high. Hard place for CAS to be effective, but hard for AA to find effective sightlines too.
    Teamwork and Tactics are OP

      Hmmm.... 3 trees = Brazilian jungle?

      Kind of disheartening.

          Exactly what I was thinking. It IS disheartening. From what I have seen, this really does look just like a green tinted Esamir. I think its pretty safe to assume the bases will be the same old copy+paste as well :(

            Is Amerish jungle? I forget what the original was.

              It looks temperant. But come on who would fight over forests?

                No the original was temperate, but it DID have woodlands in addition to grassy plains. But if you compare the original with the new one, its quite sad.

                I am not a PS1 vet so I cant confirm this, but a PS1 vet did tell me that on the original Amerish not only was there underground fighting, but even an underground river/lake that had an island with a base in the middle. How awesome would that be to have something like that in PS2? There is so much potential for awesome out of the box environments, but so far I have yet to see it.

                *sigh*...

                  I don't remember any underground lake or river, unless he was talking about the caves. The caves were a separate location btw.

                    Yeah, Core Combat. Better known as the xpac that killed PS1.

                      Amer was a rolling plains/hilly cont with scattered forests. The jungle map with the large trees and lots of rain and puddles/swamps you could hide lightnings in was Hossin, or the battle island Extinction.

                      Ugh so dark. But a gen hold!

                        Ah. I heard people calling Amerish the 'jungle' continent. I hope we see at least a decent forest on Amerish, and fingers crossed for a jungle continent in the future.

                          They DO have Hossin in the works for post launch... maybe then we will actually be able to see some jungle!
