About the Game

Fight in the theatre of war that changed the world forever. Battle alongside your compatriots on some of the most inhospitable environments of the Eastern Front in Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. Red Orchestra places you in the most realistic WWII first-person multi-player combat to date on the PC, allowing the player to fight through some of the most intense combat of the war. You can play as infantry, using a wide range of infantry weapons, or crew one of the many armored combat vehicles available in the game, from half-tracks to the most famous German and Soviet heavy tanks. Engage the enemy with everything in your arsenal, from your bayonet at close quarters up to the massive 122mm cannon on the Soviet IS-2. And if that isn't enough, find an officer and a radio to call in thunderous artillery strikes to shake the enemy loose.

  • Full 50+ player online Multiplayer Support
  • Unique Setting - the only FPS to focus on the WWII Russian Front

New for Summer '07

This update includes a new map, a new vehicle and some major graphical enhancements to the game and is available to owners of the game for free through Steam. The new map - Krivoi Rog - gives players the largest tank slugfest to date, with 16 square kilometers of terrain, 3000 meter viewable range and up to 50 players. This map also features the new vehicle - the German Panzer IV G, providing the German players with some additional fire-power for the mid-war period.

In addition to the new map and vehicle, an all-new adaptive bloom system has been added for the game's graphics, making the bloom crystal-clear even at low resolutions. For further eye-candy, Anti-Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering settings are now configurable in-game.

New for Spring '07

  • Ten new maps, the winning entries in Tripwire's Custom Map Competition. Tripwire worked with the developers of each of these maps to ensure the maps are optimized, polished, and gameplay balanced. Highlights in the new map-pack include:
  • "Smolensk Stalemate": the contest winning map features perfectly balanced to-and-fro infantry combat through ruined villages and trenches in August 1943.
    "Leningrad": features close-quarters infantry fighting in the ruined streets of the city, above them in the bombed-out buildings and deep beneath them in the sewers, all with close-in armor support.
    "Berezina": the After-Hourz team surpass themselves on this rural/village map, introducing not just a new vehicle (the Russian BT-7 light tank), but also the first functional anti-tank gun in the game. To cap it off, the BT-7 even carries tank-riders.
    "Black Day July": one of the very best for tank combat fans, set in the rolling countryside around Prokhorovka as German and Russian armor clash en masse during the Battle of Kursk.
  • Increased player limits. A new level of intensity with 50+ player multiplayer battles (up from the previous limit of 32).
  • New community made content, including the Russian BT-7 light tank with infantry tank riders and the first player controllable anti-tank gun in the game.
  • New soundtrack: The "Orchestra" comes to the Ostfront - the game now features a complete in-game soundtrack from composer Matthew Burns.
  • Gameplay enhancements. The addition of several features requested by the clan/ladder/league community to enhance competitive play.

Ostfront.
Yeah, it's that one game.
That one game Everyone. should love.
For its time, it has amazing graphics for its time, incredible choice of weaponry, great modelling, and a fine selection of maps.
The only con is the fact that the voice acting is terrible.
This along with darkest hour is just pure amazement.
I highly suggest this game.

Altough I prefer Red Orchestra 2 Heroes of Stalingrad, I have to say that Ostfront 41-45 hasn't lost its charme yet. The graphics are old, sure, but there's still a small community which keeps the game alive. Just you join a server with 30+ players, and you'll forget about its weaknesses. The main reason for me to play Heroes of Stalingrad instead of Ostfront 41-45 is the well-developed ranking system with levels and much more weapons.

The single best game I have played. I have spent thousands of hours playing this, before steam started recording hours. I've been longing to find a game which would give me that magical feeling again

Maybe a old game but it's the best game I've ever played WW2. Great multiplayer mode and really cool to play with friends. But I think also that Red Orchestra is quite realistic to recommend everyone to buy and play. And with all this I will also buy Red Orchestra 2. ;)

This is probably the best FPS I've played in a while. You'll be like "pewpewpewpewpewpew" wit' a MG and some sniper will smack your ♥♥♥♥. But that doesn't matter because you're having fun. It's Nazi on Soviet action too ♥♥♥♥in' hot for my ♥♥♥♥ing mind man.

8/10 would manually reload.
