And here is our next trailer… produced in conjunction with FUGO Studios, based here in Atlanta. You’ll be seeing more of their work in game but, for now, enjoy the fun:
After some initial concerns about ratings in Australia, we are happy to annouce that Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad has been rated MA15+ ["Strong war violence, Gaming experience may change online"] by the Australian Government Classification Board, with no cuts required. Nice job by Lace Mamba Global in the UK and AFA in Australia.
For all you Australians, the game is now available uncut to pre-purchase through Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/35450/), Direct 2 Drive, Gamers’ Gate, Green Man Gaming and all good retailers in Australia!
Sam Hulick, who has composed and orchestrated the Red Orchestra 2 soundtrack, was recently interviewed over on Gamespot – click HERE. A little bit of background on Sam for you, plus samples from the soundtrack.
[And yes, for those who haven't noticed, the first step in the advertising campaign started today... go find it!]
We have to announce that the release date for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is shifting back two weeks to September 13, 2011.
