    A new official Passtime map was announced on the official Passtime group today, District:

    They didn't announce a release date in the post, but based on the screens it looks like it could be nearly finished. The only other thing they say in the message on the group is the trains are always on time so I'm guessing the subway area in the second screenshot will feature subway trains that go by occasionally and can cause an environmental death.


    Personally I'm happy to see another official map using Kong King visuals. I really like them and they feel really underused.

    Edit: Spelling mistake in the title and I can't fix it :( Admin edit: Fixed typo.

    I think the Passtime goal prop works a LOT better in this theme than it did in the sawmill/forest theme.

    The map looks fantastic, and I'm excited to play it.

    Is this the first time Valve has extensively used community-created assets in a map? If so, it sets an exciting precedent.

    Keep in mind that it's not Valve working on Pass Time.

    Is this literally an edit of Kong King? Sure looks like it. Now I can't decide if I wish I had finished that CTF version or I'm glad I didn't.

    It just uses the same assets by the looks of it. King didn't have a subway, nor did it use this roof anywhere other than the point (unless I'm mistaken).

    Something tells me you haven't really looked at Kong King much.

    On the third screenshot you can see a building in the background with what looks to be one of the goals.

    That subway sucks tbh, but outdoor street view I think is neater than in 3dnj's map.

    What assets? Did I miss something? Like, koth-king's assets are official.

    koth_king's assets are official, but not created by Valve (rather, by 3DNJ).

    Yes, to promote Sleeping Dogs. And now it's evolved into its own thing.
