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 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.

New Map
  • Added Demyansk

    After the original attempt to encircle the German forces at Demyansk, German troops managed to hold open a supply corridor and set up a strong defensive line. The German army kept the corridor open in hopes it would it would draw forces away from other parts of the front. Their strong defensive positions made this battle long and costly before the German forces finally pulled out.

Updated Maps
  • Gumrak - Added T-70 and Panzer III tanks to the map.
  • Barashka - Added T-70 and Panzer III tanks to the map.

Bugs Fixed
Maps

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!

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.
