Community Playdates - Playdate #1: Xbox One & Steam

Do you have Gunscape? Do you want to play with us or play with the community? Then join us! Yes, we’re bringing our Gunscape Community Playdates back!

Our Community Playdates are basically an opportunity for you guys to play (and chat) with us, and also an opportunity to play FFA and Team maps if you’re struggling to find people to try those maps with.

We’re going to be a bit busy during the lead up to RTX Sydney, so the playdates will officially start on February. We picked the most popular date and time according to our polls (Tuesdays at 11:00 AM - AEDT, Sydney time), but if this doesn’t work for the majority, let us know!

We’ll also be announcing every playdate here (and on social media) a week before it happens.

On Tuesday, February 6 at 11:00 AM - Sydney Time (or PST: Monday, February 5 at 4:00 PM; or GMT: Tuesday, February 6 at 12:00 AM, midnight; or check for your timezone), we will make a room in the game a room to play a few community-made maps (from our Featured Maps mostly, but we also take requests!).

We will switch platforms every week, and depending on your platform, the playdates will be every two weeks or weekly. The schedule is going to be as it follows:

  1. Week 1: Xbox One & Steam

  2. Week 2: PS4 & Steam

  3. Week 3: Xbox One & Steam

  4. And so on...

The reasoning behind this is that Gunscape has crossplay between PC and consoles, but not between consoles.

We’ll try this weekly approach for now, but the schedule might change as we go, depending on how the first playdates go.

Having explained all of that, here are the details for our first Community Playdate:

Platform: Steam & Xbox One

Day and time: Tuesday, February 6, at 11:00 AM - Sydney time (find your timezone here)

Room name: Blowfish Community Playdate

User: starsapphire

The idea is to play different maps between 30 minutes to an hour. The room will have the maximum capacity available, but if you miss out, we’ll have plenty of chances to join!

And remember to send us map suggestions if you wanna play a map in specific!

If you have any questions about these playdates, please let us know in the comments or send us a tweet and we’ll try to answer asap.

Featured Maps #8

What’s up everyone!

Welcome to the 8th edition of our Featured Maps! We’re on time this time haha! We still had quite a few maps to test though, so we’re happy to see that you all are creating many maps!

Remember to send us suggestions as well, even if they’re not recent. We want to make Featured Maps a nice mix of old and new maps.

And now, let’s go to the maps!

Winners

Title: wtf-Goodnight

Creator: Overhead Greg

Type: Co-Op

If you want a map with a lot of action, then this one is for you! You’ll need a quick aim or good reflexes with this one too, as you won’t only encounter a lot of enemies, but the map doesn’t give you much space to run around or hide. But don’t worry! You’ll have just enough ammo, health packs and weapons to fight your enemies, especially at the end, but we won’t spoil that part. Let’s just say it’s a good way to end the map.

Title: Trenches

Creator: TheDarkCrucible

Type: FFA / Team

This map is for both FFA and Team modes, but we would recommend the team one here, because it will give you the actual feeling of fighting in the “trenches”. This map might look simple, but it’s well designed and it does have a nice look-and-feel that makes you feel like you’re in the middle of a war, with two defined areas where people can hide and regroup (and where you can find some basic resources), and then a main arena with some destroyed buildings, and maybe a few goodies if you know where to look ;)

Title: Corporation

Creator: MerlinWizard160

Type: Team

This is quite a fun and nicely design arena! Think of it as a castle in the middle of the air, but the castle is this inside area that simulates the offices of a corporation (as the name says). Outside of it, there’s an open arena, or well “open”, because this arena is in the middle of nowhere, so if you fall here, you fall to your death, and trust us, falling is quite easy when you only have narrow bridges with a drop to one side and a pit of acid to the other one. And on top of everything (literally on top, winkwink), there’s a platform with a few pleasant and unpleasant surprises.

Title: Escape

Creator: Baltok86

Type: Co-Op

This is also a classic map. As the map says, the main goal of this map is to escape where you are. If you like maps with puzzles, then you might enjoy this one. You need to follow certain steps to get keys and progress through the map, and for that, you will need to confront certain enemies to get to the keys. The design of the map itself is pretty classic, it will make you feel like you are in a nazi castle or fortress, and that you have to kill all of the soldiers in sight!

Title: Mystery Town

Creator: Garfello

Type: FFA

This type of map is a classic. An arena with a few buildings and spots to hide, but mostly open. This “town” might remind you of a deserted western town, and it works like that. It’s also not a big map, so a couple of people might have fun playing a bit of hide and seek (or sniping), as well as a big group can play using the different (but small) buildings in the map. If you want a sort of “simple” map, but that works well and has an interesting look-and-feel, this one might be for you.

Featured Maps #7

What’s up everyone!

Welcome to the 7th edition of our Featured Maps! And sorry for the delay, but we had a lot of maps to test. It looks like you all have been busy making new maps during the holidays!

Now that the holidays are over, our Featured Maps come back to a regular schedule (every 2 weeks), so remember to send us suggestions!

And now, let’s go to the maps

Winners

Title: DIGITAS v2.0

Creator: SquidVicious2, Storm Lord ast, iOnly

Type: Co-Op

This map is just what you’d expect from a collaboration between some of our most dedicated creators! I had high expectations when it was pointed out to me, and it certainly delivered! The map has an interesting and immersive story, and the look-and-feel of the map helps that. Basically, you’re in a massive spaceship and you have to investigate what happened to the crew there. The map isn’t exactly open-world, but it will give you that feeling, as you have different places you can investigate at the same time, so you can choose your own path! Plus, there’s quite a bit of action and enough weapons and ammo to survive. You definitely wanna give this one a shot!

Title: [LOOP] Goldeneye STREETS

Creator: LoopyFun369

Type: Co-Op

This is the first part of a campaign that consists of 3 maps. You might think that the first one is a little bit short, but it’s packed with action and a quite nicely designed environment, and stay with us right here, because the other maps of this campaign are longer and we’re sure you’re gonna like them! As most of LoopyFun’s maps, this map will definitely make you feel like you’re in a Bond movie or the old Goldeneye games.

Title: Protocall Breakout 2

Creator: Sgt.FreeKiller

Type: Co-Op

This is the second part of a really interesting campaign. With an immersive story about an outbreak and zombies, you find yourself trying to escape a building that has a lot of enemies (seriously, you’ll have a lot of action!). You’ll get enough weapons, but you’ll have to be careful with your ammo or you’ll run out at some points like I did. This map has a nice design and the story will surely wanna make you play more of it!

Title: High Tower

Creator: NoOWLs

Type: FFA

This map is massive. Like capital letter massive, or at least it’s for an arena map. The map is contained so you can’t escape it, but we would still recommend playing this with a large group of people, or the map would become hide and seek (but if you wanna play like that, go ahead!). As the name of the map indicates, there’s a high tower in the middle that hides a few weapons, you miiight wanna take a look!

Title: 2FORT

Creator: Suaz

Type: FFA

As the name of this map says, this map is basically two forts divided by an arena! While we think this might work really well for a Team map (wink wink creator!), it also works for it’s designated category. You can get weapons and hide inside the forts while trying to snipe your opponents, or you can also run into the arena and fight everyone there!

Title: [eng] the apprentice [fr] l'apprenti

Creator: P0P0killInstint

Type: Co-Op

French-speaking community, this one is for you! This map is both in English and French (and uses our NPC feature quite well. The map is also well designed, with not only an interesting plot, but more than anything, a really good look-and-feel and design of the map itself. The highlight might be the series of vents that um… might not be good for claustrophobics, but those vents look really believable and make the map layout a lot more fun! And of course, there’s a bit of action here as well, so there’s something for everyone.

Featured Maps #6

What’s up everyone!

Welcome to the sixth edition of our Featured Maps! We’re happy to see that this has been well received, and that we’re getting suggestions and opinions about our recs!

But remember to send us maps to check out, whether they’re new or old, we want to try your maps and we want to feature them!

We also wanted to mention that we won’t have a new Featured Maps post until after the holidays. The studio closes during the week between Christmas and New Years, so we’ll be back on January 5th!

Winners

Title: One Piece: Thousend Sunny

Creator: Mac_Aroni

Type: FFA

As the map tells you, this map is inspired on the anime One Piece! That anime is about pirates and this map is basically a pirate ship waiting to be raided. With a lot of platforms and a nice variety of weapons, there is a lot to discover in this map. There is also an arena in the middle where you can fight everyone, but if your thing is to snipe people from above, then you will also have good sniper spots… if you can get to them.

Title: [LOOP] The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time/Kokiri Forest

Creator: LoopyFun369

Type: Co-Op

If you like that Zelda look and feel, then you’re going to love this map. While this map is a bit short, it will make you feel like you’re playing a Zelda game. With NPC’s that might send you here and there, getting some secret weapons, and confronting (or escaping from!) some enemies, you’ll have a bit of everything. What blew us away was the design though, as it’s a good homage to the actual Zelda game.

Title: Q Fortress [ARENA]

Creator: bernardodepaulao

Type: FFA

The description of this map says that there are 3 paths, 4 weapons, 2 invulnerabilities and 2 quad damage power ups. The challenge of this map is not only to get killed by your opponents, but also to be able to get to the weapons you might need before someone kills you! We’re sure this map would work well with small groups (a group of 4 would be good!) but also with bigger ones if everyone’s fighting to get the limited resources!

Title: TR-1

Creator: amradioi

Type: Co-Op

This map is about a virus that has infected every video game ever, and now it’s your job to kill the virus! If you want a map that it is mostly about killing enemies (really, there are a loooot, and you won’t have that many weapons), then this it the map for you. Challenging and fun, but it can also be frustrating if you died as many times as I did. It will be a good test to your patience and your flight or fight ability, as sometimes you might have to flee instead of trying to kill everything.

Featured Maps #5

What’s up everyone!

Welcome to the fifth edition of our Featured Maps! We’re glad to hear that you guys seem to be enjoying these posts and that you’re trying all the recs!

We're also bringing FishPlay back next week and we hope you're looking forward to that!

Winners

Title: Freighter 46

Creator: KneonT

Type: Co-Op

The first three parts of this campaign are up and we can tell you that we’ve been enjoying them a lot! This map isn’t so much about enemies (but you do get a fair bit of action!) as it is about the story and how well designed the whole place is. Lots of puzzles to solve and a lot of walking around the map as well. Also the enemies might surprise you… I got the equivalent of a jump scare at some point and it was well planned!

Title: Cem VS Mac

Creator: Mac_Aroni

Type: Team

This is one of those maps that might appear simple, but has a bit of everything. You have a nice variety of weapons, buildings where you can hide, trampolines that let you get to the top areas of the buildings, an arena where you can fight, and also a trap (in the form of lava that covers pretty much everything…). This seems to be a good option to play with your friends and in different game modes!

Title: The Box

Creator: Dominator

Type: FFA / Team

Most FFA or Team games have the players fighting each other, but this map gives the formula a twist. Instead of only fighting your opponents, here you’ll have to defend yourself from the environment as well! It’s a little bit like the floor is lava, except the floor is electricity. And with weapons that require close combat, then you’ll have to travel a bit to get to your opponent and kill them, so be careful!

Title: Air Arena

Creator: Charles V

Type: FFA / Team

We always like it when you guys come up with new ways of using our tools, and we think this map does that. Instead of using trampolines or teleporters, this map uses the swords in our new DLC, and their ability to teleport you to other places (hint: right click to get teleported winkwink). The map is basically an arena in the mid-air, and you have to teleport from platform to platform to be able to move around. That combined with your classic FFA or Team modes makes this a quite fun map!
