I'll give it a crack, even if it's just to support PC driven titles - but honestly, I don't hold out too much hope for this. It was all set to be cutting edge two years ago - and it's still potentially another year away...

What it's got going for it, is there really isn't any competition. The CODs and Battlefields are not (in my opinion) in the same league as RO, and I'd only consider Arma in the same ballpark... and unfortunately it kinda fell in it's own heap. Good game, but one for the fans only.

The eternal difficulty with "realist" titles like RO (and Arma) are that when you're on the receiving end of a veteran with a rifle - it just feels like you're playing against a hacker. Where one-shot kills always (as it should!) it very often strips out the fun factor of games. Finding the balance of fun and realism is always the greatest hurdle for these titles.

Hoping they get it all right, and out soon!!

From what I have understood from listening to the interviews with the CEO of Tripwire, and other interviews on the game, while it is a lot more like playing Hardcore on some of the other FPS games in that if you get shot, its a really REALLY bad thing, there has been a lot of effort put into making sure that the player is involved in the game.

Looking at the number of people who play hardcore versions of games where one shot is one kill, I am sure that there will be a core that will jump in.

Knowing how well the tweaked the game play mechanics of RO to make it work, especially with the combined arms including tanks and artillery and how well that game worked, not to mention the longevity that it achieved in game-play I am hoping that this one will be a winner.

At least we know its not going to suffer from a borked console based browser etc.

The release date for this has been set August 31.


From the information on the discussion board, the press interviews and now the information available on Steam it is looking like this one will be the FPS that I have been looking forward to for a long long time.

Good combined arms, good physics and a destructible environment that is not silly, a cover system that is good, but you need to be aware that a table may hide you from view, but won't hide you from the fire of a MG34.

Given that this is a PC only product it is going to provide us with an experience that has not been nurfed by needing to run on consoles.

Pricing in the USA is set for #39.99 with other regions Australia etc, yet to be set.

Announcement here RO2 Release Date - Tripwire Interactive Forums

Steam details here Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad on Steam

Right now it unlocks in approximately 2 months, 1 week, 3 days and 9 hours

Not that I am counting or anything.

Definitely on my 'to buy' list. Both this and BF3 should keep me away from the evil COD empire.

Interesting, a game that will use PB and VAC.


This will give us a better chance of fair gaming and also provide server admins with strong admin tools.
