The game said will be better than Black Ops when it's out

Post  Zerofr@G! on Wed Dec 08, 2010 10:59 am

The Jan 2011 issue of PC Gamer has 5 pages detailing why Red Orchestra 2 will be better than Black Ops when it comes out in Q1 2011.

RO2 Heroes of Stalingrad will be exclusively for PC and based on a WWII setting:

Heroes of Stalingrad will take the award winning Red Orchestra franchise into the next generation of gaming. Cutting edge graphics and audio built on Unreal Engine 3, inventive features and streamlined realism will deliver an unrivalled WWII experience. Focusing on the Battle of Stalingrad and the surrounding operations, both German and Russian, from July 1942 to February 1943 the game allows the player to experience one of the most brutal battles in all of human history. For the first time ever in a first person shooter gamers will be able to experience WWII from the Axis side in a German single player campaign.

As always with the Red Orchestra franchise, Tripwire will aim to deliver unrivalled accuracy and attention to detail, along with gritty, vicious combat in multi-player, co-op and solo modes. Again, Tripwire have listened to the fans and have designed a whole set of new features to make the game more accessible and easy to get into – all while delivering the tactical shooter realism fans of the original game loved.
Key Features:

* RO multiplayer taken to new heights: With highly addictive and fun varieties of game-play online, the game will feature everything from quick, brutal firefights, through to more intricate and challenging simulation modes.
* Persistent Stats Tracking and Player Progression: Grow in rank, earn medals, improve your abilities, and become a Hero – all visible to the complete online gaming community and embedded within the game.
* Heroes: Obtain the ultimate goal and become a Hero online. Heroes inspire friendly troops and strike fear in their enemies. Heroes have access to the best and rarest weapons and equipment, and will stand out visually from the rest of the soldiers.
* Stalingrad Campaign: The Stalingrad campaign will feature the multiplayer maps used in a campaign layout recreating the battle for Stalingrad from both the German and Russian sides.
* Unique Focus: Take the familiar WWII genre into a unique direction. Far removed from the well-trodden Normandy setting, gameplay is based on fresh scenarios and actions the player has never experienced before. Follow the German army as they assault the city of Stalingrad, to the banks of the Volga. Follow the Soviet army as it holds the city against all the odds then destroys the Axis forces.
* First person cover system: Experience the ultimate firefights that a cover system allows, from the immersion of a first person view. Peek or blind fire over and around cover and more.
* Squad Command: Command fire teams on the battlefield using an easy to use first person interface. Suppress the enemy, send a fire team to flank them and hit them where it hurts!
* WWII weaponry redefined: True to life ballistics, bullet penetration, breathing, adjustable sights, free aim, weapon bracing, photo-real graphics and more, create WWII weaponry that has no equal.
* Co-op: Players can connect with their friends and battle AI in multiple game types including the Stalingrad Campaign, Skirmish Mode, and more.
* Morale: Experience what it is like to be a soldier in one of the bloodiest conflicts in history and the importance of a soldier’s state of mind and how it can turn the tide of battle.
* Exciting Offline Play: Offline play against AI featuring the Stalingrad Campaign, Skirmish mode, and more give the player an exciting and fun environment to learn the game before hopping online.
* Competitions & Leader-boards: Compete to obtain unique awards and achievements with players all over the world. The competitions range from shooting range challenges to unique and fun assault courses.
* Enhanced Unreal® Engine™ 3: Built on an enhanced version of Unreal Engine 3 the game features cutting edge visuals and features.

I am tired of modern warfare and the increasing neglect given to PC gamers by Activision, will be looking forward to getting back to WWII with this title which is ONLY available for the PC platform. Very Happy

P.S. Max player number for dedicated servers will be 64! They have maps for 16, 32 and 64 players. Wow! Smile

Mods are already in development for RO2 though the game has not been released, like this Vietnam mod teaser for RO2 showcasing the environment and weapon:



It's nice to hear that modders already have their hands busy developing mods for the gaming community so early on, unlike newer games of late which either stopped modding or keep delaying the release of mod tools till months after a game's release.

Yea RO first came out as a total conversion mod for UT2003 and launched it's first retail game titled Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 back in year 2006. You can still buy it from steam at USD9.99, look at the steam product page and note how much free content the developer and modding community has rolled out for this game:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/1200/

This is the trailer for the older version of RO if you are interested:



We must not be brainwashed to think that we are suppose to pay for new maps and content! The PC gaming community should be getting DLCs free!
