CONTAINS ONLY LIMITED RISING STORM CONTENT`

Please note: if you buy Red Orchestra 2 from this store page, you will get RIFLE-ONLY access to Rising Storm, NOT the whole game. If you head for the Rising Storm store page (http://store.steampowered.com/app/234510/), you can buy Rising Storm, including ALL of the Red Orchestra 2 Multiplayer content.

Just Updated


Continuing our tradition of providing free additional content for all our games, here is the "Island Assault" Content Pack for Rising Storm, that all Red Orchestra 2 players also have access to.

The pack includes the following new features for the games:

  • Multiplayer Campaign Mode is an all new paradigm in multiplayer FPS games – more than just a game type, it ties the game types and individual matches together into a campaign that can keep you occupied for hours. This gives the multiplayer game more depth than ever before, as individual matches now matter for the overall victory or loss in the MP campaign. Both sides battle it out to control territories on a large scale battle map, voting on which territories to attack, whether to attempt to take more territory, or to defend and try to grind down the enemy's resources. We like to say it is like a “meta-game" of Risk. This features both Stalingrad and Pacific Theater campaigns.
  • All new level: Betio. The tiny island of Betio was the scene of the heaviest fighting during the Battle of Tarawa in November 1943, the first major US amphibious offensive of the Pacific Theater. The map here recreates the push of the US 2nd Marine Division across the devastated island against their counterparts in the 6th Special Naval Landing Force (the Japanese 'Marines') as the US forces attempt to disable key tactical objectives such as naval guns and transmitter stations. The map favors desperate pitched defenses and assaults at all costs.
  • Two new weapons, one for Rising Storm and one for Red Orchestra 2. Red Orchestra 2 gets the PPS-42 submachine gun. Born out of desperation during the siege of Leningrad, the PPS-42 provides the Russians with a powerful, lightweight SMG option. For Rising Storm, the Japanese get the Type 97 sniper rifle. More accurate than the existing Type 99 sniper rifle, this weapon gives the Japanese another way to reach out and touch their enemies.
  • Classic Mode Refinements. While Rising Storm and Red Orchestra 2 are considered by many to be one of the most hardcore shooters out there, the hardcore among the fan base have been clamoring for something even more extreme and authentic. The fans have asked and we've answered with further refinements to Classic Mode (the most hardcore gameplay mode in RS/RO2). We've made player movement changes, as well as aiming and recoil changes to make it more difficult to keep your aim on enemies resulting in longer and more intense firefights.

Previous Updates


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.

Steam 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:

Game of the Year Edition

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 the 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 and single-player 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.
  • Stalingrad Campaign: Before heading online hone your skills in one of two campaigns that recreate the battle for Stalingrad from both the German and Russian sides. Featuring open non-linear environments and unscripted gameplay players make their own path through the battlefield.
  • 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 spend the majority of your time sitting in a disgusting ditch filled with the shattered corpses of your fallen comrades, as well as those still unfortunate to be "alive", if you can even use that term to describe what is left of those wretches. As you crawl through soggy trenches, you can hear the shouts of orders being given and soldiers being slain, either blown to torn meat by mortar explosions or cut in half from machine gun fire. You are not a man, you are a frightened rabbit that dashes from cover to cover, whispering wishes of survival for but a few more seconds while pieces of concrete are chipped away around you by enemy sharp shooters. In the worst of times, you are a worm that crawls in the mud, lest a rifleman spots your shape in the distance. There is no salvation from a tank. Death can come from nowhere at all.

Stay away fom windows.

Also, you can't drop more than five feet without breaking a leg. It's fine though, since your small pack of two bandages offers you a second chance at life. Try not too die to quickly, and remember to check your magazine. You can also modify your sights and give out commands. There are a variety of classes to choose from. Choose wisely, and don't be afraid to loot corpses; they don't need anything anymore anyway.

Stay away from windows.

There is also a morale system, where you slowly lose your mind if you are under a barrage of enemy rounds, or if you see an ally get half of their face blown off and fall to the ground screaming in agony for a good minute or so before bleeding out. The result is blurred and discolored sight. I think I got this when I saw a guy get his legs shot off and watched him crawl about an inch away from cover before getting taken out by a sniper.

Stay away from windows.

In all seriousness, this game has a great deal of work put into detail and animations, but there remain some optimization issues. They're not bad, and a someone with an excellent PC might never even notice them.

Rising Storm and Red Orchestra 2 have different dynamics, although the mechanics are exactly the same, if that makes any sense.

If there is one thing I have to ABSOLUTELY give this game credit for, is that it has a personality. A very grim personality, but it's better than the typical "♥♥♥♥ yeah" jingoism many games go for.

There is nothing more satisfying than watching an enemy tank blow to bits.

The singleplayer is good practice, but the AI is really ditzy. The soldiers do not show a lot of initiative and tanks commanders seem to forget that tanks can't climb walls.

Also, about the window thing: I was waiting for my squad to move up and about seven of them decided march right in front of a window in a factory. A machine gunner across the chasm opened up on them and killed them all. It was really unpleasant to watch them panic and stumble and run into each other while being shot to pieces.

Get on the 50 cal. Johnson! That's an order! Uhh, Sarge' I think Johnson is dead. Don't give me any lip private, you get Johnson on that 50 cal. and throw his god damned corpse on it if you have to!
Of course this scene instantly snapped back to me as soon as I started up Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. I saw the vivid picture of my entire squad being picked off one by one. It was a gruesome Friday night and we lost many good souls that match. If only, if only we had more respawn points we could have pushed back those Kraut ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. As soon as the memory fades I alt-tab out. I can't do it anymore. Maybe, I'll go mine some diamonds or something....
This game is not for the faint-hearted. If you're prone to frequent war flash backs or can't stand being around constant virtual death I recommend you seek elsewhere for your video entertainment needs. Pick up RO2: HoS if you think you can handle the horrors of war.

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is a great game!

It has 3 game "difficulties" action (you have a crossair and increased health to make the game easier for new players)
realism (no crossair, single shots are mostly fatal)
classic (no zooming and nearly no hud)

The game also offers a lot of content and has workshop support!

get it if you want a fun and realistic game!

Red Orchestra 2 is a brilliant multiplayer team-based fps that reinvigorated my love for the genre. Based on the Battle of Stalingrad on the Eastern Front of WW2, the game is remarkable in it's attention to detail and authenticity.

The weapon handling/mechanics are second to none, I have never played a more satisfying shooter. This coupled with the realistic level of damage players receive, makes for a highly rewarding combat system. The feeling of successfully rooting out a Sniper or MG with one well-placed shot, and freeing up your team's advance is incredible.

This is a game in which teamwork is paramount, the attacking team must capture and sometimes destroy objectives to advance to victory. This is facilitated (in theory) by the Commander and Squad Leaders, who each have an extremely important role to play. The Commander has access to radio's located in various spots around the map. From these, he can call recon planes to check enemy movement, force respawns and call artillery strikes which can turn the momentum of a game completely. A good Commander is a necessity, as he will stategize on the fly, give the Squad Leaders and their teams objectives to complete and decimate enemy reinforcements with artillery.

This is where the Squad Leaders come in, as they posses the means to mark artillery targets in the form of binoculars and also serve as a mobile spawn point. Above all else the Squad Leaders job is to mark artillery targets for the Commander when asked, and to stay alive close to the objective. This is to allow a constant stream of attackers to spawn close to the objective, and keep the pressure on the enemy before he becomes entrenched.

There are 12 different squad roles in RO2, depending on the map being played and whether there is a tank present. The most common roles are Rifleman, Elite Rifleman, Assault, Elite Assault, Marksman, Machine Gunner, Squad Leader and Commander. On maps with a tank there will also be roles related to tank operation and destruction. Each of these classes have a specific role to play, most of which is pretty self-explanatory. For example, the Elite Assault and Assault classes must push up into the objective with aggression, while the Riflemen and Machine Gunners provide cover for the assault. When a team is working together cohesively with a competent Commander and good Squad Leaders, it is one of the most exciting and rewarding games I have ever played.

RO2 is a game that takes a lot of time and effort to learn, and to a new player it can seem very overwhelming and difficult. If you are new to RO2, my best advice would be to role-play as a soldier in WW2. If you were in that situation, would you run across a street covered by an MG or into an artillery strike? If you treat your life as valuable, use cover, check your approach and move as a team you are much more likely to succeed. For me, this involved deprogramming a lot of the behavior that is sound in games like COD and Battlefield, as running everywhere will get you killed in most cases.

While this game is definitely rough around the edges in some areas, it delivers a uniquely rewarding experience to the genre. With the constant stream of awesome community-made maps, the addition of Rising Storm and the forthcoming mod In Country: Vietnam, I couldn't recommend it more highly.
