With the new (FREE) Island Assault Content Pack on its way, with a bunch of new content for Rising Storm and Red Orchestra 2, Jim Rossignol over at Rock Paper Shotgun got to play the new content early and has written up a preview – HERE.
And there is the first showing of a brand new TRAILER there as well, so go take a look!
Today, Tripwire Interactive and the Rising Storm Team are delighted to announce the release of Rising Storm, the next game in the award-winning Red Orchestra franchise. Rising Storm is a complete new multi-player game, focusing on the fighting in the Pacific Theater of WWII, with the US Army and Marine Corps taking on the Imperial Japanese Army. To celebrate the launch we’ve put together an amazing new launch trailer for the game (Click HERE for 1080P version on Vimeo), so be sure to check that out as well!
On top of the basic features, there is Tripwire Interactive’s support for the customer: apart from an ongoing 25% discount for all those who already own RO2, there are update packs already in the works, which will add more free content to your games!
With Rising Storm releasing tomorrow (Thursday, May 30, 2013) the game is now available for all those who have pre-purchased (as well as all those who currently own just RO2) to pre-load. This will allow you to download the game early and start playing as soon as servers update with the released version of the game tomorrow. The SDK will also be available for pre-load the same way, which is:
- Right-click on your current “Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad” install (or RO2 SDK install) in your Steam library.
- 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!
