Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is now a game you can play. If you buy it. Which you now can. This is the standard of journalism you get from me after 1am. Far better to ignore me and watch the launch trailer below.
Remember when shooters took place in the olden days? Red Orchestra still does, withis its Heroes Of Stalingrad sequel very much remaining in Ultra War The Second. Below is a hefty chunk of multiplayer footage, which one interested in the game might be wise to watch.
Also in new screenshot news come these images from Red Orchestra 2: Heroes Of Stalingrad. Due out 30th August, the sequel from Tripwire boasts improved multiplayer, and a Stalingrad campaign using the multiplayer maps, which will let you play as either the Germans or the Russians – two sides that don’t get much attention in first-person gaming. You can see the latest images below, along with a peak of the Rising Storm mod that Tripwire are sponsoring.
I’m quite glad. Stalinglad, in fact, and it’s all because I have these new shots of upcoming gritty multiplayer FPS Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalinglad. Grad. Stalingrad. Look, give me a minute, I’m still reeling from that Call of Duty convention thing.
We will not give you a minute! We demand INFORMATION!
Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad – first it had a name, then it had some screenshots, then it had some videos and now it has a release date. And so the cosmic ballet continues. Tripwire’s next commercial take on the masterfully dour World War 2 mod-gone-pro has been in the offing for a good few years, but now? Now it’s only months away. To war, gentlemen. Well, nearly.

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, the sequel to jaw-droppingly bleak 2006 multiplayer FPS Red Orchestra (which you can read me screaming about here), is absolutely the PC exclusive on the horizon that I’m most excited about. Just look here at the features list. They’re taking a rich, rare little game and turning it into a beast. A beast! With bullets for teeth!
Anyway, Blue’s News have spotted a thread on the “Bash and Slash” forums (ew) and another thread on the PBBans forum where people are reporting on the game’s cheating countermeasures and impressive array of server options (including a server tool to allow hosts to modify everything from weapons to scoring elements). It’s all to be found after the jump.

Mod-gone-pro Red Orchestra sequel, Heroes of Stalingrad, has released a bunch of new screenshots. The last time we saw such a thing was in June. Some of them show men with guns. Others show completely empty rooms. Why do all developers and publishers, of all sizes, continue to release screenshots of empty rooms despite their being of no use to anyone in the entire universe? (This game looks interesting, but what might it look like if neither I nor anyone else is playing it?) I’ve no idea. I’ve chosen not to include them below, so sorry to those who were desperate to see a big empty blue-ish building. There’s also a swanky trailer below that’s a wee bit old, but I don’t think we’ve posted it before.
