Rising Storm “Game of the Year Edition” Now Available on Steam!

by on Monday, April 21, 2014, under News

Today, Tripwire Interactive and Anti Matter Games are pleased to announce the release of the Rising Storm “Game of the Year Edition.” Already awarded “Multiplayer Game of the Year” by PC Gamer for 2013, the Game of the Year Edition is bursting with new content for both Rising Storm and Red Orchestra 2 (Red Orchestra 2 Multiplayer is included in Rising Storm). Transports for the German and Russian factions, a new Tripwire map (Maggot Hill), 3 community maps now official and the new Search & Destroy gameplay mode, with 10 maps configured for it. That is a full 17 maps either new or with additional gameplay!  We’d like to give a special thanks to the vehicle mod team whose work inspired and helped us implement transports into the update.

The Rising Storm Game of the Year Edition is available NOW on Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/234510/) as well as many other digital outlets. Rising Storm will be on sale later this week on Steam, as well as available to play for free at the same time. Watch for the launch of this offer – and another special one – on Steam!

To celebrate the new Game of the Year Edition we’ve put together an action packed new trailer for the game so be sure to check that out as well and share it with your friends!


Yes, web server outage!

by on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, under News

Yup, we have had a major outage over the last few days. We’ve worked with Art of War Central for years, but they dropped off the planet a little while ago, unknown to us, apparently leaving bills unpaid. The company that actually owned the servers had suspended their account and it has taken a few days to unravel the mess left behind. But here we are – frustrated, but the websites are back up and running. And not before time – we’ve got plenty of news coming at you over the next week or so!
