One of the questions that many of us were asking from the DCS World 2022 and Beyond video was the appearance of Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower. Neither landmark was on any known DCS maps and so that had us wondering what they were up to. Now we know more about it. Let’s examine the details!
Normandy is expanding
DCS: Normandy was DCS World War II’s first map and for a while it was the only map available. It had taken a bit of a back seat recently to the DCS: The Channel Map but now it seems that Ugra Media, the developers behind the map, are set to initiate a major expansion of the map.
Fresh off their success with DCS: Syria, it seems that they are taking their experience building that map into one of DCS’s most detailed and biggest maps and turning it into an even bigger map. This confirmed by Eagle Dynamics community manager NineLine in a post on the Eagle Dynamics Discord.
Well that’s interesting isn’t it? Including these two capitals into the map dramatically expands the boundaries and borders of the current map. In this rough approximation of the area being covered, it appears that we’re going to see significant growth of the available area.
Notably, this overlaps with the DCS: The Channel Map significantly which should prove interesting too. Will Ugra Media go short on some details in that area instead focusing on London, Normandy and Paris? I’m really not sure how this will pan out.
Stay tuned for more!
