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.
  • Unique Focus – the Battle of Stalingrad in depth: takes the familiar WWII genre into a unique direction. 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!

Bardzo realistyczna i wciągająca gra. Można grać setki godzin a i tak się nie znudzi. Największą zaletą jest teamplay i społeczność, która odbiera tę grę na poważnie i nie ma w niej żadnych trollów.

Chunky and choppy gameplay NO MORE!

Unlocking the frame rate:

Locate the ROEngine.ini inside: "C:\Users\User\Documents\My Games\RedOrchestra2\ROGame\Config" and open it with Notepad.

Locate a parameter that looks like this:


Set "MaxSmoothedFrameRate=62" to "MaxSmoothedFrameRate=144" - I've used 144 as an example.

Note: Setting "bSmoothFrameRate=FALSE" will uncap the limit but you will only be able to get 90 frames.

Find the remaining MaxSmoothedFrameRate lines (use Ctrl + f) and set their values to the desired amount (there are 2 MaxSmoothedFrameRate and 2 bSmoothFrameRate to edit).

Now test using either the steam FPS overlay or alternatively open the console ingame with "~" and type in "Stat FPS".

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is the follow-up to Tripwire's original hit multiplayer PC title, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45, which has gone on to sell nearly half a million units since launch. This time, the game will feature a greatly expanded multi-player experience, with multiple new game modes, a complete first person cover system, destructible terrain, enhanced weapon mechanics and realistic WWII combat made truly accessible. In addition, the game will feature single-player and co-op game modes, allowing the player to play a full campaign from the Russian and, for the first time in a first person shooter, from the German point of view. Tripwire's renowned weapon handling improved even further, with new features and sounds. And tanks created with fully-operational 3D interiors, hugely enhancing the original game’s vehicle experience

Red Orchestra 2 is the best murder simulator I've ever played. It's not the best first-person shooter or multiplayer game, or even the best team-based multiplayer game. It's certainly not the best World War II game, and its singleplayer is the worst I've played in years. But in the killing, and in the being killed, Red Orchestra 2 is a terrifying and satisfying experience.

Let's talk about you for a minute. You're a soldier in either Hitler or Stalin's army, and you're ♥♥♥♥-scared. You've got your back against the wall in a room with one door, two windows and three walls, and you're peeking around a corner into the exposed core of a half-destroyed building. Every room could conceal an enemy soldier, and you've died a hundred times already, always from that one angle you didn't check.

Looking down through the rubble, you see an enemy soldier break from behind a wall. You aim and fire in a single motion. You've shot him and now he's dead. It's exactly like a million other games, but it feels nothing like any other game. It's the little things that make the difference, such as the sound of your own breathing when you lifted the rifle to your face, and the way it bobbed slightly in your hands. It's in the mark on your enemy's chest where the bullet hit, and the way his blood spritzed from his back, marking that bullet's exit. It's in the way he fell, forced by some terrible weight. Sometimes, but not this time, it would be the way he clutches his stomach, yelling in Russian, or the way he fires his machinegun madly during his last few seconds of life.

I highly recommend this game!
