Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Jim Rossignol)

Red Orchestra 2′s Pacific-theatre standalone expansion, Rising Storm, appeared last week and offered tough-as-nails World War II multiplayer for the discerning FPS player. I waded on to its tropical beaches with my rifle above my head. Here’s Wot I Think.> (more…)

Rock, Paper, Shotgun - (Jim Rossignol)

Rising Storm - a quasi-sideways-sequel-but-also-merger with the splendid Red Orchestra 2 – has been released. As you might expect, it’s a multiplayer FPS where US Army and Marine Corps battles the Imperial Japanese Army across the Pacific theatre.

I’m planning on spending a little time with this – I’m generally reminded of why I always get a kick out of this series of games, particularly with the asymmetrical nature of the two factions, as well as suppression and morale stuff. Anyway, more on this soon, so in the meantime go watch the launch trailer below. (more…)

Product Release - Valve
Rising Storm is Now Available on Steam!

Rising Storm is the next game in the award-winning Red Orchestra franchise. Rising Storm goes to the Pacific Theater, adding more features, new levels, new weapons and new factions. The game will allow the player to fight across iconic locations from the famous island-hopping campaigns in the Pacific from 1942 to 1945, as the US Army and Marine Corps fight it out with the Imperial Japanese army and Special Naval Landing Forces. Players will experience beach assaults, jungle fighting, close quarters night fighting and more across Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima and Saipan, among other iconic battles. The player is able to take the part of either side – American or Japanese – battling it out online in multiplayer on up to 64-player servers.

Save 25% if you own Red Orchestra 2!

Here is the release trailer for Rising Storm - the new game in the Red Orchestra franchise, that takes the fighting into the Pacific Theater of WWII. In Rising Storm, US Army and Marine Corps face off against the Imperial Japanese Army in iconic locations such as Iwo Jima, Saipain and Peleliu.

The Asymmetric warfare allows the Japanese to use extra tactics against the more heavily-armed American troops. The hand-portable knee mortar, booby-traps and the ultimate Banzai charge countering the machine-guns and flamethrowers of the US forces.

Available now on Steam, other digital outlets and stores.

Select "Properties" - "Betas" tab.
Use the "Select the Beta..." dropdown box - select "Preload"
"Close" - and your current RO2 (or SDK) install will update with the new Rising Storm content.

Please note - we will be closing down the beta a few hours before the release of Rising Storm tomorrow.

Good luck, have fun, see you on the battlefield!
