Red Crucible Firestorm Map Previews (pictures)

A list of new features in Red Crucible: Firestorm. Firestorm ("Red Crucible 3") is a major Red Crucible update set to be released on April 15, 2015. It is currently available on the test server, both as web player and as standalone download for Mac, Windows, and Linux.

Firestorm will make use of Unity 4.6.1. The whole game got a new layout and house style. Every detail seems to have been taken care of, and there is almost nothing the same as in RC2. All textures are redone and the overall visual quality has been improved. However, the amount of content will be less, as RGS selects maps (and vehicles) to be in Firestorm.


Note that not all these items may be released on the release of Firestorm. Rocketeer plans to add more vehicles in later updates.


Old test server description

  • 24 brand new vehicles
  • 17 new/updated arenas
  • 3 new songs on over 150 CDs

(Almost) confirmed[1]

Maps

Many maps are updated with more complex structures and detail, and some maps now have levolution-like elements, like destructible bridges or gas pipes blowing fire. Many (or maybe even all) maps will contain ammo boxes to refill your ammunition.

The arenas that will be available upon release are:

Confirmed arenas that come later:

Updated
  • A7 Autobahn
    • The map is larger
    • The bridge seems to be destructible.
    • More complex villages and farms wih interiors
    • A power plant
  • Frankfurt
    • Totally new structure: the old, symmetric, low-detail Frankfurt is completely gone
    • A construction site, with a crashed Mi-8
    • A tunnel under the city
    • Interiors
  • Kiev
    • Much more detail
    • There are many controlled elements in this map. Players can control elevators, for example. Also, there are gas pipes that shoot heat gas when shot. (Friendly fire disabled so far)
    • Rain
    • Burning ships and a raging battle in the air in the distance
  • Sand Storm
    • Bases for the two teams like in 73 Easting
    • Interiors
  • 73 Easting
    • Tank wrecks
    • New mountains
    • A supply aircraft flying around, that resupplies your ammo when flying close to.
  • Revised oil refinery
    • More height differences around the roads
  • Red Dawn
    • A hangar
    • Gas pipes blowing fire in the staircase. It is unknown whether this is triggered by shooting the pipes or not.
    • An ammo refill depot in the basement

In many arenas, vehicles no longer spawn on the map, but need to be spawned at spawn stations. Vehicles are no longer decided per team, and each player can deploy any vehicle. If a player has unlocked the vehicle, they can select it at the spawn station, and the vehicle will spawn directly, with the player in it.

There is a computer on which the player can select a vehicle to spawn. This is familiar to the Catch-a-Ride from Borderlands. Vehicles of the same type are limited per team, which means that there can't be endless amounts of the same vehicle in the map.

Also, vehicle cameras keep looking forward when steering. In third person, there is no crosshair and there is a y-ax limit. First-person is now the default view of vehicles, and the amount of ammunition is limited.

The player will be able to jump out of a flying aircraft. This is a major improvement for anyone who can't get out of a helicopter even when it's basically on the ground.

New
  • New LUVs. These LUVs will possibly have machine guns on top for the passenger. This was seen in earlier test server videos, but were removed later, just like those on the Humvees two years ago. This COULD mean that the Humvees and the UAZs get them too, but this is not confirmed yet.
Updated
  • Improved aircraft controls
    • Jets: Barrel rolls will be possible in Firestorm.
    • Helicopters: The mouse is now used to steer the helicopter. A and D can be used for strafing.
  • Landing and taking of with plane became much more realistic.
  • A new model for the T-72 tank. This model would feature new machine gun firing effects and an actual player as gunner on the top instead of an invisible person.
    • This COULD mean: New model for the M1 Abrams, and new firing effects for ALL vehicles in the game.

Weapons

Weapons have limited ammunition, just like vehicles. Right now, the player only carries one spare magazine, but that might be subject to change.

The twitching effect of zoomed-in weapon has completely vanished, which makes the new scopes a lot more accurate and fun.

New
  • Many new melee weapons like a butcher knife and a tanto.
Updated
  • Almost all (old) weapons have new models!
  • New models for the M16 Sniper and the AK Sniper, featuring the new sight like that of the Taranis or Talon. All sniper scopes are updated this way.

Items

New
Updated
  • RocketCam: there is no longer a video in the corner of the screen. Instead, the camera is behind the rocket/missile and follows it.
  • Animations:
    • For calling in an Artillery Strike: the player pick a cellphone and calls a number. Also a new speech.
    • Deploying mines
    • Healing

Game modes

Gamemode
New
  • Territories: Capture zones and hold them to get points.
  • Conquer: some kind of King of the Hill mode, like shown on the vehicle selection screenshot.
Updated

User interface

New
  • Complete new armory.
  • Weapon icons: every class will display an icon. Vehicles will display rockets or a Gatling gun.
  • Zones will be displayed right on the screen to show their locations. The capturing progression will also be displayed.
Updated
  • New health bar
  • The minimap is now square and also shown points like vehicle selection and ammo boxes.

  • The tertiary weapon slot has changed to a Melee slot.
  • Free XP, HP, and coins when logging in consistently. ("Daily Reward")
  • Ammo boxes in the map: press E to refill your ammo when near a box.
  • Voice cammands: Players can commnunicate with alt+#. The player can choose between Thanks, Get in, Need a ride, Go go go, Cover me, Follow me, and Defend point.
  • The player can switch camera sides in third-person by scrolling the mouse wheel. This is very helpful for looking around corners.
  • Walking/sprinting speed decreased
  • Jumping height decreased
  • Grenade effects: Blue team grenades leave a blue tail and Red team leave a red one behind them.
  • New camera switch effect (zooming)
  • Updated death cam
  • Improved laser attachment[2]

FAQ

Will the Mac app be updated?
"There will be a Mac App, and it will replace your current app. There will be no more RC2 once this releases. Our plan at the moment is to release simultaneously on all of our platforms."
Will there be a knife mode?
No. At least, not at release.
