Hopping on Twitter earlier today, Producer David Sirland took a handful questions about the work-in-progress map and supplied some answers, discussing the near-final vision of the map, as well as what the next few steps will be.
We rounded up his answers below, as well as a short video with Senior Artist Cameron Petty who’s currently working on the map’s terrain and points of interest. Have a look!

Community Map Project Q&A With David Sirland
Q: Loving the map design/shape, i’ll be interested to see how much vegetation will be in the final design #JungleVibes – @Inquinity
A: We know “dense jungle” is what you guys are after (us too) – so that’s what we are planning to test and try.
Q: Where are all the trees? The map is supposed to be rainforest based. – @SteFox123
A: In this phase the objects used are bare minimum, focusing on distances and general size of the map, trees will come!
Q: I’m looking forward to it, but this map is not thick jungle. Why? – @a5t3m9adgj
A: We’re not doing that yet – first scale test, then points of interest etc. It will have thicker jungle later
Q: which game modes are going to be playable on the community map? – @xJaN0h3ck
A: All the basic ones for sure, then we might add on some surprises down the line!
Q: where in the world is this map? looks a bit like southeast Asia – @1975amccann
A: Indonesia: “Indonesian radicals have developed a new strain of virus for chemical warfare.” from the poll option!
Q: will the community Map be in esport? – @tomerz073
A: Yes. Any gamemode that we support for competitive will be in this map.
Q: will levolution be big part of the map? – @tomerz073
A: No, we decided to skip that in favor of all out destruction for gameplay’s sake. All buildings etc is destructible.
Q: Heres a good question Mr Sirland. Is the unannounced content of classic maps set to have more destruction and no levolution events? – @gamer_boyy70
A: I would say that would be a fairly safe bet yes.
Q: when do we get new maps? and are u remaking some old maps to launch with the community map? – @looops73
A: The Community Map launch date is not set yet. Any other coming content will be announced when the time is right.
Q: Will there be new Achievements / Trophies to go with the new guns and maps? – @LAClennell
A: Maps probably, guns no – as we are going to unlock these guns for all on release!
