GamesRadarCharlie (9:38 AM): Capture the Flag on the High Ground map is F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C. One team starts on defense, holed up in a formidable base with an even more forbidable blast door. The other team's on offense, with a row of Mongooses waiting on the beach.
There was obviously a ton of thought put into how this mode would play on this map. The offense can get past the door in a bunch of fun, sneaky ways. A few twisty bunker entrances. A shadowy hidden pipeline. But if the defense is smart, they'll have those paths covered. No matter... once they figure it out, you can throw down a portable gravity lift and surprise them by leaping right over the blast door itself.
Once one side finds the switch to open the blast door (we'll post a screen or video of where this is later), the action gets INTENSE. Everyone is concentrated around that one area, the bodies start piling up and moving the flag even a few feet is a cause for celebration.
Dromon (9:46 AM): Sounds awesome! Now, if only a multi-billion-dollar company could get its act together...
