My guess: Official announcement of Seelow Heights.

Naah, it's going to be Streets of Berlin, with the Easter Egg being that in Reichskanzlei there is a secret door to the Führerbunker where you can hear the "DAS WAR EIN BEFEHL!" diatribe through another closed door.

With my basic German knowledge I guess that Götterdämmerung means something like "The Dawn of Gods". What's the exact translation?

Did some research and came to the conclusion that we might get Battle of Berlin.  ;D

A Siegfried pickup kit that can stun enemies with High C ?
A trailer that is way too long and has to be watched at a derelict stage?
A wagner horn for german recon?
The possibilites are endless (like his operas)

If Google or Wikipedia isn't your thing, "Twilight of the Gods" is the contextually more appropriate term, because it is the Germanic mythological equivalent of Ragnarök from Norse mythology. Loki uses hax and Valhalla gets #rekt, the gods get #BTFO, and the entire world gets #pwned. Oh, and Brünnhilde killsteals and suicides before that, "the fat lady sings" comes from her final aria, as a maiden fair doesn't usually have big enough voice for the part. Of course, since all of this has happened before and will happen again, it's also the Dawn of the Gods, because the World respawns a bit later, though all but two players have to start with new characters without any gear or XP.

Götterdämmerung is also the fourth opera in Richard Wagner's Ring of the Nibelungs cycle. Please for the sake of sanity, never ever watch the terrible DTV movie adaptation starring Kristanna Loken, going by four or five different titles (Ring of the Nibelungs, Curse of the Ring, Sword of Xanten, Dark Kingdom: The Dragon King). The opera is six and half hours long less intermissions, and opera seats are usually borderline torture, but the real thing is still preferable to that abomination of a movie.

What with Hitler having a permanent hard-on for Germanic and Norse mythology and thus also Wagner's works, the title nowadays gets attached to all possible things related to Germany 1945 and for once is at least somewhat ironically appropriate.

I can agree with you, it's probably the least detailed map of 2.50 and I'm not really a big fan of it since the beginning of its development. On the other hand it will feature some cool toys for us to play, for example it's gonna be the only map in upcoming patch where IS-2 will be able to encounter KTs and that gonna be fun for sure.

Oh, but the combat for it is actually quite intense. The rough terrain means, you dash from covered area like Stashuv area, to open space covered by mg42 on lafette or a PAK40 to get to the next covered area; then the trenchline and open houses...

plays way better than it looks I feel. I think this might become a favorite for some. Just for the intensity of it. And we didn't have close to 64 players in beta test.
