    I have seen from various e-mails and such, that valve is currently working on:

    1. a new payload map

    2. a map with a new environment

    3. a new game mode map

    so what do you think? 3 maps maximum, 2 maps minimum.

    personally I think the payload is also the new environment map, while the new game mode will have a map of similar style to the others.

    what do you think the new game mode could be?:woot:

    Hunted for a new gametype? Others have pointed out the reference in the meet the sniper vid, so we can hope.

    I would find this a strange turn of events given Valve's stance on Hunted to date. Robin Walker flat out said they replaced Hunted with Goldrush.

    Personally, I'm hoping for some more CTF gametypes. On one hand they recently axed the half-functional flag types in Hammer, but on the other hand it's entirely possible they cut them in order to implement one new functional type. You never know with Valve.

    I can tell you what I want, and that would be something along the lines of Dustbowl. But I do like payload maps, so I'm happy to hear about this stuff.

    I'd kind of like a more urban setting for a new map. I know what we have already provides enough for streets and a few different types of buildings, but I want a little more variety and a lot more indoors textures.

    I'd agree with an urban setting, I love stage 3 dustbowl because of the more compact, concrete setting.

    Valve also really needs to release another attack/defend map.

    New environment? I doubt it'll be a far stretch from the desert. Gold Rush has a much different environment than, say, Granary, which has a much different environment from Dustbowl, etc. I don't see them leaving their clearly defined bounds.

    Maybe with the new game mode they're going to try and revisit the ill-fated territory control, redoing it somehow? Or maybe they've just left that to rot. ::p:

    I read in an interview that the 'new environment' wont be completely new because its a trade off between not wanting people to have to download loads of new content and making enough new content so that props dont get repetative (Episode 2 anyone?)
    I also heared they've been experimenting with having a goldrush type map where players have to stand on a much larget cart to make it move (kinda like pl_dreadnaught iirc)
    They've said they're gunna give us a new map or two with each character update now so that "they are giving something to everyone" so that means once they've exhausted their own maps we'll be getting more customs :woot:
    Then as the final piece of info I have Their payload map is already well into playtesting, so it won't be ages before we see it :D

    Robin Walker and I had lunch yesterday and he told me that the update will include 3 new classes, the rogue, the mage, and the fighter. :p

    Now I really want that machine that allows you to stab people over the internet.

    Also, I wouldn't be surprised if another valve map pops up in the next update, I mean they have a team of mappers, and tbh in fulltime most of us around here can make a decent map on their own in a time span like this.

    Hey what are you talking about, Team Fortress 2 is a machine where you can (back)stab people over the internet!:p:p:p

    It's funny watching their tongues flop in unison...

    I too guess Hunted for the next game mode. Or something like cz2 or epicenter.
