PC Gamer Preview & Helicopter Reveal Trailer

Before PAX, Tyler from PC Gamer wrote about his experiences playing Rising Storm 2: Vietnam in a multiplayer session.

“Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, the follow up to Rising Storm and the Red Orchestra series of realism-focused multiplayer FPSes, is mostly the tension part of the war movie. It’s a lot of slow, creeping movement, a lot of thinking about my positioning and the enemy’s positioning, and then a burst of action—automatic rifles and explosions and the part where a bunch of extras die. (You're the extra.)”

New "Armour Update" available now for Heroes of the West!

Heroes of the West Armor Update.

In this latest update of Heroes of the West, the free mod for Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm we are proud to introduce 2 new tanks, the American M4A3 Sherman and the German Sturmgeschutz III ausf. G (Stug IIIG).

The M4A3 Sherman was a common model of the famous Sherman tank. Many were in use and deployed in the Normandy theatre. We present to you the mid-production variant with the standard 75mm gun.

The German Sturmgeschutz III ausf. G was the most common variant of any Armored Fighting Vehicle used by the Germans in WW2. With its low profile it was an effective infantry support, and anti-tank, vehicle in most theaters where it saw action. Over 8,000 were produced.

The update also brings in the US M1A1 Bazooka. This was the first mass-produced AT rocket launcher to be introduced in the war and, with its 60mm HEAT ammunition, it was an effective infantry anti-tank weapon, levelling the playing field against enemy armor.

All of these new features can be seen on the newest addition to our map-list, WF-Bocage. This map is based on the fighting through the difficult terrain of Normandy with its imposing hedgerows. Set during operation Cobra, the US forces have to fight field to field and road to road through this terrain, fending off German ambushes.

Please allow time for servers to update. If you have any feedback please feel free to say something on our steam forums at

To commemorate the 72nd anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, we have introduced 2 new maps, a new vehicles and a whole bunch of detail changes and updates for the Heroes of the West mod! The new maps are:

  • Caen Outskirts: a combined arms map featuring the British in a gruelling fight to break out from the Normandy beachhead in summer 1944. The map also introduces the British Bren Carrier troop transport.

Game of the Year Edition

May 2014: To celebrate the award of PC Gamer's "Multiplayer Game of the Year 2013", we have update Rising Storm to the Game of the Year edition. This already includes all the previous content updates (Island Assault and the Counterattack mapping contest maps) and now adds in the following:

  • 2 transport vehicles for the RO2 factions - Universal Carrier for the Russians and SdKfz-251 halftrack for the Germans
  • 3 existing maps updated for the transports (Arad 2, Barashka and Rakowice
  • New map - Maggot Hill, featuring Merrill's Marauders at Nhpum Ga, April 1944
  • New Search & Destroy gameplay mode - a single life game-type in which teams take turns attempting to destroy one of multiple objectives by planting an explosive. A full set of 10 maps configured for this new game mode
  • 3 new community maps now official - Phosphate Plant and Otori Shima featuring US vs Japanese and Myshkova River featuring Russians vs Germans

December 2013: Now that the $35,000 Counterattack Mapping Contest for RO2 has concluded and helped us find the best community made maps on Steam Workshop, Tripwire have worked with the original map makers to polish them up and add them into Red Orchestra 2 as Official Custom Maps. These are some of the best - adding some great new gameplay. All are included for free for everyone who owns the game. Don't forget there are more great community maps and content on Steam Workshop, so head on over there now!

This is the second Counterattack Map Contest Pack and completes the set, bringing you 3 more maps:
  • Bridges of Druzhina - a massive combined arms map, Russians attacking across open ground, a river and right through a small city, supported by armor; the Germans dug in and steadily pushed back. A classic!
  • Cold Steel - a Soviet assault against German infantry dug in to a huge factory complex, fighting across open spaces and then inside individual factory buildings.
  • Gumrak Station - a re-imagining of a classic Ostfront map, moved to Gumrak Station, to the west of Stalingrad.

Digital Deluxe Edition

Steam Digital Deluxe Edition adds the following extras on top of the Standard Edition:

  • Day 1 Unlock of the Elite Assault Weapons (MKb 42(H) and AVT-40) and Semi Auto Sniper Weapons (SVT-40 and G 41(W):

  • Team Fortress 2 German and Russian hats ("Genuine" if bought during pre-purchase):
  • Two new characters for Killing Floor - Russian and German Soldier Re-enactors:

New Game Modes

This new edition adds a whole set of extra features, available for free to all owners of the game, including two new game modes:

  • “Action” mode – Featuring a crosshair, easier aiming and toned down recoil, reduced damage and open access to a wide range of weaponry Action mode is the perfect first step for players into the world of Red Orchestra.
  • “Classic” mode blends the gameplay innovations of the new game with the tactical and edgy gameplay of the original giving the fans of the first game exactly what they want.
  • Mamayev Kurgan – complete new map, featuring both close-quarters battles in trenches and bunkers, as well as longer ranged combat across the famous hill in Stalingrad.
  • Refined and improved gameplay across the board, vehicle improvements, and way better performance and polish. We listened to the community and based on their feedback refined and tweaked almost every major feature in the game!

About This Game

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, the leading tactical multiplayer WWII shooter on the PC, will take the award winning Red Orchestra franchise into the next generation of gaming. Cutting edge graphics and audio built using the Unreal Engine 3, inventive features and streamlined realism will deliver an unrivalled tactical shooter experience.
Heroes of Stalingrad will focus on the Battle of Stalingrad and the surrounding operations, both German and Russian, from July 1942 to February 1943. The game allows the player to experience one of the most brutal battles in all of human history. Delivering unrivalled accuracy and attention to detail, along with gritty, vicious combat in multiplayer modes the game will feature everything from quick, brutal firefights to more intricate and challenging tactical modes.

Key Features

  • Red Orchestra multiplayer taken to new heights: The brutal, gritty Red Orchestra gameplay has been enhanced, expanded and made more accessible. Gameplay modes as instantly recognizable as Firefight (Tripwire's take on Team Death Match), single-life gaming redefined in Countdown mode - and the Territory mode already beloved by the hundreds of thousands of Red Orchestra players worldwide.
  • Heroes: Achieve the ultimate goal and become a Hero online. Players with hero status inspire troops around them and cause fear in their enemies. Heroes have access to the best and rarest weapons and will stand out visually from the rest of the soldiers.
  • First person cover system: Experience the ultimate firefights that a cover system allows, from the immersion of a first person view. Peek or blind fire over and around cover and more.

Far removed from the well-trodden Normandy setting, gameplay is based on fresh scenarios and actions the player has never experienced before. Follow the German army as they assault the city of Stalingrad, to the banks of the Volga. Follow the Soviet army as it holds the city against all the odds then destroys the Axis forces.
  • WWII weaponry redefined: true to life ballistics, bullet penetration, breathing, adjustable sights, free aim, weapon bracing, photo-real graphics and more, create WWII weaponry that has no equal.
  • Immersive First Person Tank Warfare: experience what it was like to fight inside one of these metal beasts in WWII with the most immersive first person tank warfare ever created. Fully modeled 3d interiors, a full AI crew, and advanced armor and damage systems create a unique tanking experience.
  • Morale: Experience what it is like to be a soldier in one of the bloodiest conflicts in history and the importance of a soldier’s state of mind and how it can turn the tide of battle. Suppress your enemies and gain the advantage in combat!
  • Persistent Stats Tracking and Player Progression: Persistence constantly gives the gamer something to strive for and keeps them playing. Grow in rank, earn achievements, improve your abilities, and become a Hero!

You find yourself in the trenches, a submachinegun in your hands and knowledge that certain death could be around any corner, you don't dare stand up at risk of meeting the same fate as your comrades who attempted to fight back.

You creep through the trenches in search of the enemy, at this point not knowing your true goal other than survive, you hear gunfire, and the sounds of those who were in the wrong place at the wrong time, you only hope you aren't next.

You clear corridors, step over the remains of those less fortunate, you keep cheating death longer and longer, until it happens. You turn the corner, and there crouched is a man, the only difference between you and him at that very moment is an insignia, he shares the same expression of fear and dispair knowing full well these are his final moments.

Your finger jerks back on the trigger

Rounds barrel down the trench

Your finger does not release

Dust flies as more and more rounds are sent

Finally the firing ceases, as your hearing returns, all that can be heard is the echoing screams of a man who simply wanted to live to see another day, The dust slowly settles, you see the silhoutte of the man on his back, motionless, and you wonder how you could do such a thing to another human being,

But those thoughts are quickly cleared as hear a man walk up behind you, the inevitable happens.

What once was dug to protect you from death becomes your grave, as your breathing slows and you feel colder, your only hope is that in some way, your death was not in vain, that in some way you did your part to end the war.

Only time will tell if it did...

Few games can TRULY replicate war, this one does.

Just saying - the game is not for everyone. Fans of "call of duty" and other arcade shooters don't belong here. Here realism!
1. Pretty good graphics.
2.Different classes, each class has its own set of weapons and equipment.
3. The damage system is very well thought out. A punch in the stomach? No matter perepetuya. If you find yourself in the heart to say goodbye to life.
4.Different modes.
5.Complexity. The game is difficult to survive, and everything is difficult.
7.Classroom map.
8.Well-rounded weapon.
9.Solves skill
10. In voice chat You will not find students.
1.It is difficult for a beginner.

This game hits the sweet spot. Battlefield is too much fun to feel realistic. Arma 3 is too much realistic to have fun. And I am not even going to talk about Call of Duty.

This is one of the best FPS's out there. While the graphics are somewhat dated the gameplay is excellent. This game forces you to think, move, and engage as a team. This is NOT a Call of Duty or Battlefield hop around and shoot people style game. You MUST perform your role efficiently or the whole team suffers. With 1,880 hrs in game I can honestly say I got my $19.99's worth out of this purchase. I hope that the new Vietnam version will be just as delightful.
