Red Orchestra 2: Heroes Of Stalingrad

Recommended Posts

I haven't tried. Most flamethrower players are facing you head-on or out of sight bouncing flames off walls. I'll try it out the next time I play.
 
Rising Storm pre-purchase very soon - pricing info. Also open beta coming soon. Anyone who owns RO2 can play RS for free with limitations (IE. Probably Rifleman only with no upgrades).

 

Rising Storm is going to be available for pre-purchase very soon, via the Steam store page, with the Base version of the game at these prices: 19.99 USD/ 17.99 EUR/ 14.99 GBP/ 399 RUB.

 
You can also buy the Rising Storm Steam Digital Deluxe Edition, which adds the following extras:
  • Day 1 Unlock of the US M12 Trench Shotgun, Japanese Type 99 LMG, Japanese Type 99 Sniper Rifle with 4X scope (level 2) and the US M1 Garand with bayonet (Level 2).
  • 2 Rising Storm soldier playable characters for Killing Floor - Ricky Vegas and Hayako Tanaka.
  • The Rising Storm and Red Orchestra 2 soundtracks.
  • AND all the upgrades for the RO2 Digital Deluxe Edition (4 day 1 unlock weapons, 2 playable RO2 characters in KF, and 2 RO2 hats in TF2)
The Steam DDE is priced at 29.99 USD/ 24.99 EUR/ 19.99 GBP/ 499 RUB.
 
Discounts and specials:
  • Pre-purchasing Rising Storm (Base or DDE) will grant immediate access to the Rising Storm Beta (note that experience earned in the Beta will NOT carry over to the released version).
  • There will be a 15% discount off the pricing during the pre-purchase period
  • All existing RO2 owners get an additional 25% discount off Rising Storm (Base or DDE; does NOT apply to a later upgrade from Base RS to DDE)
And last, but by no means least, all those early purchasers of RO2 who earned the "In B4 Reset" Achievement will get all the Day 1 unlocks for Rising Storm (4 weapons) PLUS a 2X multiplier on experience points earned during the first 2 weeks after release.

TWI gave out two beta invites for everyone who is already playing. I already gave away mine sorry :(

 

Really having fun with the second tier Japanese rifle and smg. You can unlock the monopod for the Arisaka Type 99 at level 50, should be interesting.

After further testing... I don't think flamethrower tanks explode when you shoot them in the game as there are no achievements for it and they do have plenty of flamethrower achievements. Possible reasoning is that Hollywood exaggerated flamethrower tanks exploding on bullet impact. [Source]

Antimatter Games partnered with Impossible Pictures and National Geographic in 2014 to deliver an action-packed six-part hour long documentary series to international television markets that recreated the most daring raids of World War 2 using the Red Orchestra 2/Rising Storm game engine.

 

Using a new 'machinima' like approach to documentary filmmaking, real locations were painstakingly recreated from research and reference materials to function as 3D sets for the action. Players then moved through the space like actors, recreating from testimony and source materials real historical events at a level of detail impossible using traditional reconstructive cinematography. Further enhancements were made using post-production effects and pre-rendered sequences to highlight specific factual detail.

 

Fingers crossed for Western and/or North Africa front expansions. This reminds me when History channel or whoever used Total War Rome for a TV series haha. Can't find any local listings for this show, its driving me nuts.
