Greetings MechWarriors,

On June 22nd we will be releasing Polar Highlands Reborn and it will be replacing the existing Polar Highlands Map.
You can look forward to more patch notes detailing Mech Agility changes in the days leading up to the patch but for now, take a look at the map!

YOUTUBE PREVIEW!

Looks promising. Long-range options, with more opportunity to engage closely. Interested to see how this plays out.

Looking forward to this map. You folks are keeping busy this year, it seems. Thanks.
Nice if original is still available as "Classic" like some other maps.

Is this the full resolution of the map by chance, or will the one in the gamefiles be larger?

Now you just need to place the domination marker to the side of the map instead of center Posted Image

One more map that will be a drought to play Posted Image . They're removing tatic from maps. Your programmer or map remakes is doing what a player does with an editor. It's easy and it doesn't make sense. They've already forgotten about learning the TT 1 version and TT 2 is a spectacle. The person who did HP did a great job wanted to see all the maps on that level but no!! now that MWO plus one of the F2P gets worse. then let players make maps if and for that. This no longer Battletech universe. Posted Image

I think we can rest assured that you're only looking at the Pre-Drop Thumbnail there. The version you'll see while on the surface and staring at your BattleGrid Display has to be much larger than this for it to work properly. Keep in mind, map size has not been changing, therefore we should end up seeing a map that is still several kilometers across! ;)

Even with that said however, I do hope that they have kept some of the more remote building layouts untouched. I also hope they have added some more buildings out on the remote areas. I can't really see everything from the current previews, but they would nicely complement what I am seeing more towards the center of the map area. :)

Looks great but why replace the maps? Can't you just put this map in rotation with the existing Polar Highlands? I would even like the original Terra Therma back in play. It gives more variety.

In this case, the original map deserves to be punted into the shadow realm. It will not be missed.

Anyway, can't wait to dive into this one.

A video walkthrough or flythrough of the map would have been better.

I agree. this is no longer Battletech, in fact it never has been Battletech.

Also I hope you can let me know what "tatic" is. if it lets me get more damages I'd be glad to incorporate it into my gameplay.

Agreed. The overview of the map reminds me of Alpine PRO from MechWarrior 4: Mercs.

THANK YOU!!!! Finally we can advance without getting LRM'd or PPC'd to death.

And I really appreciate you replacing the map instead of leaving the old one and adding the new one. The old one had to go.

This is great news. Love the direction the game is going, keep up the good work.
