From now until Sunday 27 May, Red Orchestra 2 multi-player will be available completely free to play for everyone on Steam so get out there and give the game a try. Not only is the game free this weekend, but if you decide to pick it up before Monday we're selling it at 75% off!

that's why I'm proud of having pre-purchased the deluxe edition, to support your work. The way you managed this RO2 rebirth, shows what you really are, the best comunity-oriented company in the software houses scene.

Thanks for this magnificient update guys, and congrats for:

- the hard work
- your passion
- being constructive and respectful while being encircled

I'm looking forward to RO2 and I will call back some friends.

Let this game be what it deserve.


Long live Red Orchestra !

Default Thanks you !

Congratulations for this update!
Before the game worked half the time and thanks to your efforts, nothing works anymore !
Continue on this path, the community has not finished to hate you

"Félicitation pour cette mise à jour !
Avant, le jeu fonctionnait à moitié et grâce à vos effort, plus rien ne fonctionne !
continuez dans cette voie, la communauté n'a pas fini de vous détester "

Had some great games right now with both new and old players... Classic Mode is absolutely fantastic in a visceral, bloody death sort of way.

Simply AMAZING Tripwire. Feels almost like a new entire game. Everyone makes mistakes at some point but you guys really deserve our trust. Thanks for such a great job.

WOW. Thanks SO much for this update. I played a bit of Classic tonight, liked it alot (as in the beta.)

For me though, even more impressive is how much more I like regular realism mode with the tweaks you've done to it. Zoom seems reduced, bandaging takes a bit longer, and lock-down is nowhere near as intrusive as it was. It really IS like a brand new game.

And nearly 1000 people on this late. 5x increase there, hopefully many of them stay. On both servers I was on this evening there was a LOT of positive commentary from existing and NEW players. A lot of helpful commentary from existing TO new players as well.

Heard moments ago on Mamayev map via in-game VOIP:
"This is my first RO match and it is SO F*&^%&G amazing!" Clearly, this gentleman is impressed. As am I. Thanks again.

Thanks for all the hard work. Looking forward to playing after I finish the download. A little extra cannon fodder will be much appreciated too.

It's brilliant. Just finished a very hard-fought match on Mamayev Kurgan as the Allied commander. My opposite number did a great job, winning the match 2:1. I was happy with 80+ kills though, probably 60 of them from artillery

I guess the Germans will learn pretty quickly not to bunch up on the objective as it falls

Terrific teamwork from both sides, too. The game is just so much better.

The battle is on and I need to work. Not too long until I join. Hope the game is experiencing a rebirth and loads of newcomers stay. Help the newbies as once people helped you to join the RO-series.

Well I was looking forward to this until my PC died. I don't know what's broken either.
