Default Island Assault content pack for Rising Storm/RO2

Continuing our tradition of providing free additional content for all our games, Tripwire Interactive is pleased to announce the release of the "Island Assault" Content Pack for Rising Storm. So that everyone gets a chance to try out the free content pack as well as the base game, we are running our first ever free weekend for Rising Storm (that means you can play the full game, for free, all weekend), starting today (Thursday 26 September), through Sunday.

A new trailer, of course:
Vimeo - Rising Storm Island Assault Trailer on Vimeo
Youtube - Rising Storm Island Assault Trailer HQ - YouTube

The pack includes the following new features for the games:
  • Multiplayer Campaign Mode is an all new paradigm in multiplayer FPS games – more than just a game type, it ties the game types and individual matches together into a campaign that can keep you occupied for hours. This gives the multiplayer game more depth than ever before, as individual matches now matter for the overall victory or loss in the MP campaign. Both sides battle it out to control territories on a large scale battle map, voting on which territories to attack, whether to attempt to take more territory, or to defend and try to grind down the enemy's resources. We like to say it is like a “meta-game" of Risk. This features both Stalingrad and Pacific Theater campaigns.
  • All new level: Betio. The tiny island of Betio was the scene of the heaviest fighting during the Battle of Tarawa in November 1943, the first major US amphibious offensive of the Pacific Theater. The map here recreates the push of the US 2nd Marine Division across the devastated island against their counterparts in the 6th Special Naval Landing Force (the Japanese 'Marines') as the US forces attempt to disable key tactical objectives such as naval guns and transmitter stations. The map favors desperate pitched defenses and assaults at all costs.
  • Two new weapons, one for Rising Storm and one for Red Orchestra 2. Red Orchestra 2 gets the PPS-42 submachine gun. Born out of desperation during the siege of Leningrad, the PPS-42 provides the Russians with a powerful, lightweight SMG option. For Rising Storm, the Japanese get the Type 97 sniper rifle. More accurate than the existing Type 99 sniper rifle, this weapon gives the Japanese another way to reach out and touch their enemies.
  • Classic Mode Refinements. While Rising Storm and Red Orchestra 2 are considered by many to be one of the most hardcore shooters out there, the hardcore among the fan base have been clamoring for something even more extreme and authentic. The fans have asked and we've answered with further refinements to Classic Mode (the most hardcore gameplay mode in RS/RO2). We've made player movement changes, as well as aiming and recoil changes to make it more difficult to keep your aim on enemies resulting in longer and more intense firefights.

You can pick up the games on Steam: Rising Storm (http://store.steampowered.com/app/234510) and Red Orchestra 2 Game of the Year Edition (http://store.steampowered.com/app/35450/). Remember that Rising Storm includes all the multi-player content of Red Orchestra 2!

Sorry, Hanto is too short.

If the map was too lopsided for the Japanese, you should have just moved their spawns back a bit or moved the American spawns up.

This is my fault actually. Updated Text mod needs an update. It'll be up in half an hour. Sorry!

Default Found a bug on the type 97 sniper rifle

Would not allow me to fire the rifle. It kept loading and acting like the rifle was empty.

If I spawned after dying, the problem would resolve itself.

thanks

Just a small annoyance, but is it normal for the server browser filters and on-screen hints to be reset after downloading the update?

Thanks.

Just 2 questions:

Where's everybody?! There are "only" 700 players online right now...

Where are the Classic servers?! There are only 3 servers running Classic mode right now and they are empty









EDIT: BONUS QUESTION

Why there's still "Multiplayer Campaign BETA" message on top right?

5GB - with a normal connection ~1 day. And the majority of the playerbase is working right now so they won't prob. have steam running/auto-updating.
