Cartography pays: Rising Storm hosts mapping contest with cash prizes

ro2 rising storm

Budding map-makers, prick up your ears: Tripwire Interactive is running a competition for people keen to build some battlegrounds for the newly released Rising Storm.

This perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise, being that Tripwire did pretty much the same thing with Red Orchestra 2 last year, but it’s nice to see developers actually championing modding and user-made bits and bobs for a change. Anyone with Rising Storm can take part, as the SDK you need can be downloaded from Steam by everyone who owns the game.

There are apparently a number of prizes on offer, totalling over $25,000 USD, with the grand prize a rather decent $10,000. The contest starts RIGHT NOW with some formal feedback on offer on 3 September, and the final (and only) judging on 5 November.

Check out the full details on the official website.

He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing things about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning some really terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
