Mods And Monsters: Killing Floor Joins Steam Workshop

By Adam Smith on September 24th, 2012.

Killing Floor knows all about mods, having been one itself. They never tidy their rooms, leaving files scattered all over internets and hard drives alike, and trying to organise them is like trying to herd cats. The multiplayer horrorshow is gathering all its mods in one place, the increasingly active Steam Workshop, which should make keeping track of maps and modes much easier. Tripwire will also be adding Steam Workshop support to Red Orchestra 2, which is receiving a paid for expandomod by the name of Rising Storm. I’ve got a load of notes about that which I shall compile later this week. There are booby traps, flamethrowers and kamikaze bayonet stabbings, all of which I approve of in games though I frown at them in life.

Rising Storm Approaches For Red Orchestra 2

By Jim Rossignol on October 19th, 2011.

Not my fucking sandcastle you bastards!
No, this storm is nothing to do with disgruntled gamers, and everything to do with with the Pacific rim-based expansion pack coming for Red Orchestra 2, which we have previously mentioned on a couple of occasions. 1c have, for some reason, released the first trailer, which you can see below. It’s looking a lot like Red Orchestra 2, only with more sunshine, more shattered palm trees, and 100% more US Army vs Japanese military. The expansion is currently dated for “2012″, which according to my calendar is next year.

By John Walker on July 12th, 2011.

Snowball fight over there!

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.

Red Augustra: Heroes Of Stalingrad Dated

By Alec Meer on June 22nd, 2011.

Wait, where's the cellist?

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.

Orchestral Backing: Rising Storm

By Jim Rossignol on May 19th, 2010.


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.
