For those not already aware, we are also very excited to announce the selection of PunkBuster™ Anti-Cheat software and PBBans streaming ban support for the game, in addition to using Valve Anti-Cheat (VAC). “With the selection of PunkBuster and PBBans in addition to VAC we’re taking a three pronged approach to cheat protection for Red Orchestra 2,” said John Gibson, Tripwire Interactive President. “We hope this sends a strong message to gamers that we take cheating very seriously and are tackling it head on BEFORE the game ships.”
Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad – coming to you via Steam and other digital distribution sites, plus stores across the world, 30th August 2011. MSRP $39.99 for the USA, with prices for other territories set to appropriate pricing for those territories.
