In just a few minutes the "Rising Storm Beta" application will be updated to the latest beta build of the game! Featuring bug fixes, some community feature requests, and the new vehicles and weapon!

We will be opening up our server tomorrow to host the first outside the office test so stay tuned for an event announcement with the exact time!


PSA:

As a heads up for those who already installed the beta. Until just now the beta was using the live games Config files. To address this problem please do the following (we are updating this in the beta but for those who already ran it you will need to do this by hand or delete your config files).

Navigate to your Rising Storm Beta install directory and drill into ROGame/Config. It should look something like this: D:\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Rising Storm Beta\ROGame\Config. Once there open up the DefaultEngine.ini file and search for the following section:

[Windows.StandardUser]
MyDocumentsSubDirName=

And make it look like this:

[Windows.StandardUser]
MyDocumentsSubDirName=Rising Storm Beta

Then save the folder. The next time you launch the game it should use the right directory.

In the near future we plan on rolling out an update to the Rising Storm beta so the community can help us balance some of our upcoming content to Red Orchestra 2! (We recommend you do not install it just yet as you will have to do a huge update/download when we release the new build). So stay tuned to the official forums and here at the Official Game Group for more information!

Rolling off the Killing Floor 2 announcement and Killing Floor End Of The Line event, we at Tripwire have some good news for Red Orchestra 2 fans! New hardware is being shipped to the front! What hardware? Glad you asked!

Small Arms

Maschinengewehr 1942 (MG-42) - A squad and mounted machine gun of the German armies, designed and intended to replace the MG-34. Firing at 1,200 rpm, the MG-42 not only put bullets down range but fear as well. One of its only drawbacks was its inability to have successful sustained fire due to the amount of ammunition it could consume as well as easily over heating its barrel.

Vehicles

T-70 - Designed to replace previous light tanks in use by the Russian army and one of the last light tanks to be made before their fall out of favor for more armored and up-gunned medium and heavy tanks. Featuring a small crew (consisting of the driver and the commander/gunner), it boasted a 45-mm cannon and a coaxial mounted DT machine gun.

Panzerkampfwagen III (Panzer III) - Intended as the main battle tank of the German armies going into WWII it went through several modifications and role changes as the Germany army encountered heavier armored and armed tanks on the eastern front. It also introduced the standard 3 man turret that became the standard for both the Germany army and that of the Allied powers it was fighting.

We will be bringing you screenshots as development of these items continues. I will also be going into (in my continuing series of What We Are Up To Posts) some of the new features and community requests that we are tackling for our next set of updates. Also I am pleased to announce that we've been working on the SDKfz 251 and in a future build it will sit 6 passengers in the back. We'll see you on the front!

A small 6.6 MB update is going out for all RO 2 clients (sever update not required) at this time. This update addresses a recent crash that many users have experienced on first server load or map change.
