A fan made addition for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) had added a part of the London Underground to the gaming community.
Being a fantasy, it plays rather fast and loose with historical references, but that’s the fun of the thing, not to be slavish to tube-geek-pedantry.
The fictional, and still under construction, Aldham East tube station sits 15 storeys below street level, comes with Jubilee line platform doors and seemingly set on the Metropolitan line, with Victoria line tube map colours. The tube map is… shall we say, creative?
“Fifteen stories beneath the streets, within the thick concrete of an under-construction station,” the video intro warns, “an organised eastern European agent is to attempt an attack, in order to destroy a bunch of historical artefacts hidden underneath the station’s floor.”
If you’re feeling particularly nerdy, the tube map in the station shows the following stations:
- North Docking
- Silent Hill
- Aldham East
- Tilted Towers
- Dogging Park
- Six Sisters
- Purble Place
- Corbyn Street
Updated 29th Sept – corrected spelling on some of the station names.
