Deep beneath the surface lies a high-tech underground laboratory, its primary function being researching devastatingly harmful experimental weaponry. A large portion of these research projects featured the ever lethal chemical known simply as, Nova 6.
After an alledged “accidental” mass leak of said chemical the facility and its workers have been forced into demon-like proportions. In their quest of finding the elusive artifact they’ve been searching for, our four heroes boldy venture downwards into the unknowns, prepared to face the nightmare that lurks below.
Much like my previous map, Das Stahllabor is, by design, a challenging map. I’ve personally never been a fan of zombie maps that are just too easy (ex. Der Eisendrache) or maps that can otherwise be easily cheated with something like Dead Wire. This map is relatively close-quarter orientated, and will generally keep you on alert at all times. However, unlike my previous map, Das Stahllabor includes a full five part easter egg questline (which is driven by dialogue from the doctor himself!).
This is in addition to a couple of smaller side easter eggs and a music easter egg as well. Upon completing the main easter egg, players also have the option to escape the laboratory and end the game. For a full list of features, view the credits section down below.
