New Onslaught Maps Released

As promised, Gamespot has released two new Onslaught maps for Unreal Tournament 2004. Unfortunately, you need to sign up for their service and be running Microsoft Satan^H^H^H^H^HXP to download them. I tried getting Konqueror to pretend that it was IE6 running on XP, but that didn't work. I'll post a link once someone has a mirror that the rest of us can use.

Update: Worthplaying has posted the 12mb package in a format that does not require that other O/S.

Update #2: I'm hearing that the "official" flag is set on these maps, meaning that clients cannot download them from servers. I also had a problem with UT2K4 segfaulting the first time I tried to run it after unzipping the maps into my ut2004/Maps directory. On the Atari forums, a Windows user had the same experience. After that, however, the game has run fine for me. The maps seem very cool, although more strenuous on my system than many others.

Update #3: (and the last one, I promise) I just got done playing some Onslaught with bots on ONS-Aridoom. It was quite a bit of fun. There are a lot of Goliaths on a relatively small map (actually, there's a lot of vehicles in general). There are also a good amount of AVRiLs so things stay pretty balanced. I was in a three-Goliath formation attacking the base. Pretty impressive. The level's layout also make ambushing Goliaths pretty easy. Big things going boom . . . what's not to like?
