G.I. Joe: Battleground launches new map, double XP and Cobra La Incoming!

The last G.I. Joe: Battleground PVP Event has been met with some pretty vocal criticisms, mostly for the perceived uneven gameplay and buggy software that appeared to permeate the entire event. Well Mobage and DeNA are doing what they can to erase bad memories with a couple of exciting announcements over night.

First of all, folks have noticed a grayed out area called the “Florida Everglades” and that grayed out area is now active, offering a wealth of more missions for both G.I. Joe and Cobra! Included in those new missions are some exciting new character cards for folks like Sneak Peek and Muskrat, and judging by the announcement image, Desert Scorpion and Recoil are in the wings as well.

To go along with the new map, G.I. Joe: Battleground is offering Double XP on all missions throughout the entire weekend, so take some time to level up your backlog of characters.

You might want to focus on levelling up the G.I. Joe side, though, as Mobage also warns us that Cobra La is coming! A new event is apparently on the horizon, and based on the shaded images, looks like we’ve got Falcon and Pythona to look forward to (among others I’m sure).
