Red Augustra: Heroes Of Stalingrad Dated

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.

August 30th, in fact - which means it's only a few days after the entire internet inevitably has a big falling-out about Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

RO2 will be available in shops and on Steam, plus they've just announced that it'll include PunkBuster, to stop bastards from giving everyone else a hard time with cheats and hacks and whatnot.

'PunkBuster' has forever struck me as an exciting name wasted on a useful but frankly boring product. Anti-cheating? No! I want to Bust Some Punks. It's a darned shame it's trademarked. There's so much room for a videogame named PunkBuster. 'Ian PunkBuster has just one thing on his mind today: busting some goddamned punks. Coming soon: the first PunkBuster DLC: the YobSmacker Pack."

I may have digressed.
