  • 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!

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.

If you are that sniper guy who kills me all the time, read this, and read it well.

I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career in this game. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let me survive my rounds, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.

Laying deep in a trench. There are snipers surpressing us to hell while others are trying their best to rush the killzone. My character is scared and my vision is failing me due to surpression. Another man is firing like crazy next to me screaming prayers. I get the courage to join him and fire blindly in the direction of the snipers. Some guy pretending he's Russian shouts URAAAA over and over again over mic. He gets hit, blood spilling everywhere and starts crying in agonizing pain. He tells me that it isn't safe and to push on. I hear other players over mic telling me to leave the area. Too many damn enemies. I go down instantly and do nothing while the injured man is on the ground next to me still crying. More men join us the in the trench and provide covering fire. Somone shouts ♥♥♥♥ING RUN NOW! I decide to push on and run for it. Suddenly I hear an explosion go off behind me and turn around to see bodies and limbs flying. One of the soldiers is crying....his character was pretending to talk to his mom about a booboo. Another explosion goes off closer to me and I keep running to join some other teamates. The guy who got shot joins me at the next stand off. Greets me over mic in silly but hearty russian accent
*each death gets us closer to victory eh comrade?* He runs off into enemy fire shouting URAAAA.

Get it for th-URAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

My most memorable moment in this game was probably when my friend and I went ahead and decided to learn how to drive a tank in the midst of battle.

When we spawned in, our tank crew went as follows: My friend as the driver, me as the person manning the tank's actual gun, and a random person operating the machine gun. Our crash-course, self-led tutorial basically consisted of my friend driving in circles because he could hardly see anything out of the driver's slit; me not being able to shoot the gun properly because the tank was constantly moving, resulting in tank shells being fired haphazardly around; and the machine gunner, who knew what he was doing, yelling at us and calling us incompetent idiots. I proceeded to accidentally pop my head out through the tank's top, only to instantaneously be shot. My dead body slumped back into the tank cockpit and awkardly jostled there as everything in the tank was suddenly painted with my blood. I can imagine Russian soldiers peeping out of their foxholes, only to comically spectate a German tank spin around, firing randomly and carelessly.

Later in the siege, our commander called in artillery on friendly positions and we lost.

I think they actually kill employees to record the game's death screams. Red Orchestra 2 can easily be named 'PTSD Simulator 1942.'

Seriously, though. This game is great. Easily one of the best World War II shooters I've ever played. Shots kill you instantly (If you're lucky enough to survive a bullet, you usually just sit in sadness as you listen to your character scream or cry to death as they bleed out), the carnage feels authentic and the atmosphere is truly war-like. The developers really harped on realism, and I can say they nicely achieved it.

That's not to mention the soundtrack is proud and patriotic, while at the same time solemn and depressing.

The only problems I can think of is the game are its graphics-intensive nature, so you need a decent computer to run it, and the game is so structured around teamwork that an incompetent team can really rain on your gameplay experience (Or boost it, depending on the scenario).

"The one with the rifle shoots, the one without the rifle follows, when the person with the rifle is killed, the one without picks up the rifle and shoots!"

PTSD simulator. 11/10 would pick up and shoot again
