Have You Played… Red Orchestra 2

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Crack! 'Did I get him? I think I got him. Is he just injured? I'm not sure if he's--' Crack! 'I didn't get him.' Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is a multiplayer first-person shooter steadfast in its commitment to historical accuracy and…

You Have 9 Hours To Get Red Orchestra 2 Free

"Some days war takes patience, but other days it demands action," the sergeant barks, I write, lazily imagining how sergeants may speak in all those WW2 films from the 1960s that I haven't watched. "Today is a day for action," I hint to lead into the crux of this video game news post for Rock, Paper, Shotgun. "... you maggot," the sergeant adds then immediately…

Rising Storm Has Risen Over The Internet

Rising Storm - a quasi-sideways-sequel-but-also-merger with the splendid Red Orchestra 2 - has been released. As you might expect, it's a multiplayer FPS where US Army and Marine Corps battles the Imperial Japanese Army across the Pacific theatre. I'm planning on spending a little time with this - I'm generally reminded of why I always get a kick out of this series of games, particularly…

Tripwire’s Rising Storm Whips Up A Trailer

Red Orchestra 2 occupies some space on my hard-drive. I keep it there, along with Sniper Elite V2 and Build & Shoot, to satisfy a basic need I have to shoot at a tiny cluster of pixels in the distance and hope that their widows are weeping come the end of the round. I'm not a super expert at it, but it's satisfying enough for…

Mods And Monsters: Killing Floor Joins Steam Workshop

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…

Weather Or Not: Tripwire Show Off Rising Storm

Tripwire have released a bunch of footage of Rising Storm, narrated and explained by the lead dev. It shows some of the extremely diverse maps, as well as the combat in those environments. There's some great detail in there, showing features such as Japanese riflemen using their grenades as boobytrap mines. Oddly, Heroes Of Stalingrad multiplayer is going to be included in this expansion, which…

Z-Axis: Red Orchestra 2 SDK Rolls Out

Red Orchestra 2 SDK at night, modders delight. THAT should have been my headline, but alas it did not fit. Tripwire explain that these tools are now available to everyone who owns the game: "While the limited functionality preview versions of the SDK have been available to select modders for a while, this release now makes the full capabilities of the Mod SDK available to…

Rising Storm Approaches For Red Orchestra 2

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…

Tripwire Release RO2 “State Of The Game”

Tripwire Interactive have released a large statement on the "the state of the game" for Red Orchestra 2, a statement which you can read in full below. It addresses both the commercial success of the game and the technical failures in the opening weeks. The company admit that: "To put it bluntly, the game had a rough launch.

Feature: Tripwire detonated

Red Orchestra 2 review

Last week's launch of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes Of Stalingrad was a troubled one. With a seemingly overwhelming number of players reporting bugs and performance issues, it stumbled into commercial release still reeling from the flashbangs of development. Can Tripwire's brutal shooter sequel get past this quagmire of problems and snatch victory from the jaws of crashbugs? Here's Wot I Think.

Russian In: Red Orchestra 2 Screenshots

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…

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…

Red Orchestra 2 Server Options Detailed

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…
