While we are testing our release candidate of the upcoming Exile version and our trial version of the mobile XM8 app, we would like to show some progress on our next officially supported Exile map: Tanoa.
We are very excited about Tanoa, as we think it is the best terrain ever made for the whole Arma series. One can see and feel that Tanoa was made with all the different game modes of Arma in mind, which results in a superb addition to the complete Arma community. Especially that the diversity of the terrain and extreme altitude differences will introduce a completely new game-play experience.
With our first support of Altis a year ago (wow!), most players where stunned by the trader cities we offered, saying “they feel alive”. We have tried to top this feeling on Tanoa. Did we succeed? You decide!
And before you ask: Yes, we will offer a mission file for Tanoa and implement the new vehicles, weapons and uniforms. But we are still discussing this with Bohemia Interactive, since the APEX DLC will only be available for the players who have bought it. If we need to patch APEX content – eg. adjusting vehicle capacity – we would need to require APEX and Exile would stop working on non-APEX installations. We would like to prevent that, so non-APEX users can continue playing.
Please remember: this is highly work in progress and some of the screenshots were already posted on different places, so you might already know them. If not: enjoy.
