First of all, if you are a Social Justice Warrior (SJW), please do NOT play this map, thanks,

A visual narrative of Operation Barbarossa, depicted with Sven-Coop style.

The map consists of two chapters. These chapters have two separate map files (i.e. Ch1: operation_barbarossa -> Ch2: operation_barbarossa_ch2)

In the first chapter, you start playing as a German soldier whose name is "Rudolf Schwarz". In the second chapter, you play as a Soviet soldier named "Vitaly Voronin".

The map normally starts when there are at least 6 players available in the server, however that is disabled for now (Release Candidate 1 version). If you want to make the map start without requiring 6 players, just set the target of the only trigger_only to "ep1_start" (Chapter 1), "ep2_start" (for Chapter 2). Currently, they should be something like "NULLNULL". You can edit the bsp files using RIPENT tool, or simply with a hex editor. The map starts after 45 seconds automatically as of RC2.

Each of the chapters consists of separate episodes with different counts.

The play time is expected to be from 45 minutes to 1 hour. There will be various tracks playing in the background to make it fully enjoyable.

Chapter 1

Episode 1

This chapter depicts the famous "Steiner's Attack" and its consequences.

Episode 2

Date: June, 1941
Location: Krakau, General Governorate

The Polish resistance started a small uprising. Your job is to kill all the resistance soldiers in order to pursue through the Eastern Front.

Episode 3

Date: July, 1941
Location: Minsk, Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic

Your brigade has successfully suppressed the uprising in Krakau and further proceeded to Minsk, Byelorussian SSR.
The soviet soldiers have developed a nuclear weapon, and they plan to drop it on the German soil. Your purpose is to prevent it by fusing the bomb at their own nuclear facility.

This map contains a small puzzle to solve, a little like HL2 puzzles. I will not mention it here to not spoil it.

After arming the bomb for self-detonation, you must evacuate the facility immediately and head off to the evacuation zone marked with a wooden sign. You will not see the explosion, however, I created a realistic 3D sound to simulate the detonation.

You will later see this part again in the next chapter.

Episode 4

Date: December, 1941
Location: Moscow, Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic

After the bomb detonated and ruined all of their facility, they became desperate and stopped attacking.
You and your team took their position as a chance to pursue further.
You finally reached Moscow.

Your objective is to find the technological advancement of the Soviets' in the KGB headquarters, and to destroy it.

This map contains a radio tower that needs to be interacted.

Chapter 2

Episode 1

Date: November, 1943
Location: Minsk, Reichskomissariat Ostland

After the tragic event, you now play as a Soviet soldier, named 'Vitaly Voronin'.

The Nazis could not hold Moscow much long, and therefore backed to Reichkomissariat Ostland.

Your objective is to kill all Nazi soldiers in Minsk to dismantle the R.K. Ostland and ultimately to pursue to Berlin.

Episode 2

Date: January, 1945
Location: Krakow, General Governorate

Throughout 2 years, the soviet soldiers defeated the Nazis in Minsk and the Reichkomissariat Ostland collapsed!
You are now deployed to Krakow.

The Nazis have owned the city for almost 4 years. There are Nazis everywhere.

Your objective is to kill all the Nazis and liberate the town.

Episode 3

Date: April, 1945
Location: Bavarian Alps, Third Reich

The entire Nazi operation is gone. The Nazis lost the war.
Your teammates reached Berlin and confirmed that the Führer killed himself.

Meanwhile, you are deployed in the Bavarian Alps to investigate Führer's safe house.
You must kill all the remaining Nazis to get inside of his house.

Episode 4

A brief postface, telling how the war affected the Germans, the ones who started it. The consequences to the innocent German civilians. It also contains a short neutral biography of A. Hitler.

The map ends here.

Want to Contribute ?

Currently I need someone who can help me with these:
* Mouth animations for the characters in the Steiner's Attack scene.
* Axis & Soviet soldier models.
* … (Write a comment if you think you can help me with something else)


I do not believe in nor endorse the ideas of communism, socialism, fascism, Falangism, Nazism, or national socialism; the map was made as a side-project during my free time purely for fictional purposes. This project does not glorify any nation or entity featured via their music or any other means.

Known Issues

* The cutscenes (trigger_camera) get broken when a player (dis)connects. Fixing this should be the topmost priority. Anyone knows if angelscript can be used to overcome this issue?

* Ch2 Ep3 boat speed is not limited.
* Loop path_tracks are not available for the first cable car in Ch2 Ep3.
* Too long waiting time until the map actually starts.
* --An alternative to squadmakers should be found for Ch2 Ep1.-- Fix RC3.
* Auto teleport all players causes them to die because of collision.
* Missing clipping in Ch2 Ep3, and Ch2 Ep1.
* --Missing teleport in Ch2 Ep3.-- Fix RC3.
* --Slopped ladder in Ch2 Ep3.-- Fix RC3.
