Tripwire Interactive are happy to announce the latest Free
Content Pack for Red Orchestra 2 - the Fall 2012 Free Content Pack.
This time around, there are two key elements to the pack: a brand
new map, plus a redesign of the Countdown game mode. And a new
trailer, of course (
The new map is Barashka, a re-imagining and re-working of an old
favorite from the original Red Orchestra. This brings in combined
arms combat, villages, bridges and a river crossing to fight for.
The map features both Territory and Countdown game modes.
For the Countdown game mode, simplified and improved match flow
and user interface will make it much simpler to understand, making
for much more instant and direct battles. Just to encourage
everyone to try out the changes, we'll be issuing Double XP towards
your Honor from today in Countdown mode!
Of course, there are a host of other updates to the game. These
include requests from the community, such as walk while
actively firing machine guns from the hip; increased stamina pool
in Classic; chat system refinements and more.
All of this is available, as always, for free to everyone who
already owns the game. If you don't, you can buy the game from the
Steam Store Page here:
