Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad

New screens of Red Orchestra 2 and 'Rising Storm' mod

8:30 PM on 07.12.2011 // Joshua Derocher

We have some new screenshots of the upcoming World War II shooter, Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, to show off. In Red Orchestra 2, you will always be playing from first person, even while taking cover. You'll have to fire blindly over walls and hope that you get lucky enough to hit something.

You'll even get to see the interiors of the tanks you drive around, and other players will be inside with you reloading the guns. Red Orchestra 2 will have a campaign that you can play alone, with co-op, or even as a multiplayer game.

"Rising Storm" is a mod being developed by a team of lucky folks who were given the modding development tools early by Tripwire Interactive, the makers of Red Orchestra 2. Tripwire wants to make sure everyone knows that the game is mod friendly as soon as it comes out, and the best way to do that is to have a mod come with the game. The pictures from the mod are the green and leafy looking ones in the gallery. "Rising Storm" is set in the Pacific theater of World War II.

We can look forward to playing Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad and "Rising Storm" on our PCs on August 30, 2011.

A Nintendo rep gave this to me today because she likes talking to me. I do have lots of the Old AC eReader cards I guess I could put in it... [img][/img]

I'm still trying to figure out how to do it, but for the most part I like what I've seen of the new blog editor. My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.

Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles) [youtube][/youtube] This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).

What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...

Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?

Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.

I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.

I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?

Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too.
