Tripwire Interactive have announced an expansion – called Rising Storm – to the sequel to their rather well-received World War II shooter, Red Orchestra, the sequel being Heroes Of Stalingrad, see. That’s not out yet. The pictures of mangrove swamps should give you a clue about the setting – the Pacific Theatre during those fateful years when Japan decided to try and conquer the world by force, rather than by designing consumer electronics. But wait, there’s actually something really interesting about all this! Behold:
Rising Storm will be created in a first-of-its-kind collaboration between a mod team and a professional game development studio. The Rising Storm team will be made up of the best developers from the Red Orchestra modding community and the mod community at large.
We are now inviting applications for a place on the development team from experienced modders.
