Karlsruhe, 12.09.2013 – Gameforge’s new online first-person shooter, S.K.I.L.L. – Special Force 2, has successfully moved into normal operation. To celebrate the official start of the fast-paced multiplayer action title, six additional maps as well as the new ‘Glass’ game mode have been made available to players. Alongside the English and German language versions, S.K.I.L.L. – Special Force 2 is now also available in numerous other languages, including French, Spanish, Italian, Polish and Turkish.
New maps providing even more variety
A total of six new maps have found their way into the game in time for the official launch. ‘Building Site’ and ‘Shanghai’ are available in the deathmatch mode, whilst team deathmatch fans can enjoy enthralling combat on the new ‘Dam’ map. In Seizure mode, a trip to ‘Hospital’ is now possible, and in Blasting, the maps ‘Station’ and ‘Power Plant’ are new and ready for action. Further maps will also be released at regular intervals for S.K.I.L.L. – Special Force 2 in future.
Shards are unlucky – ‘Glass’ mode
Newly unlocked in time for release is the party game mode ‘Glass’. It is an entertaining team deathmatch modification, in which pistols are used exclusively. Two teams try to shoot out the glass platforms from under the feet of their opponents, to make them fall into their ruin. The team that has at least one player still on solid ground by the end of the round wins.
