We’re still combing through the assorted reveals from last night’s PC Gaming Show By PC Gamers For PC Gamers Master Race Master Race No Normals Allowed Alright, but one immediate attention-grabber is the follow up to brutalist WW2 multiplayer shooter Rising Storm (n e Red Orchestra). It’s left me all nostalgic – not because the trailer for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam [official site] has a Creedence soundtrack and a style lifted from the only bits dudebros remember from Apocalypse Now, Full Metal Jacket, Platoon et al, but because this used to be how it went before Modern Warfare was a twinkle in an executive’s eye.

As we have seen several people asking about Western Front content, we felt it would be wise of us to point you to the: Heroes Of The West mod, who are actually on their third playable release already and working on a major 4th update.


Features already include:
  • Americans vs Germans
  • Updated UI to reflect changes
  • New American uniforms: Airborne and Rangers
  • American helmets with nets!
  • New victory music for both factions

    And they are looking for more members to help them bring more content sooner (Maps, weapons, voices, vehicles and uniforms)! So if you feel you can help them with one of those, contact them today!


    When installing the mod (Manually installing the mod from the {LINK REMOVED}Media Fire Link or from
    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=319269696) make sure to read the Read Me as you need to make some changes to your .ini files for the game to get it to work properly.
