Default Tomorrow for 24 hours Red Orchestra 2 will be Free

Yes, Free! By navigating to http://store.steampowered.com/app/35450/ and downloading the game tomorrow after the promotion starts and before it ends (the promotion will last 24 hours), the game will be free to keep forever!

Following this, we will be rolling into a free weekend for Rising Storm (free for a limited time) as well as a discount! If you've been trying to convince a friend to play Red Orchestra 2 with you, there will be no better time than tomorrow!

This is going to bring in the most players yet. We gotta try and hype this up all over the internet as much as we can tomorrow!

Trust me, the hype will go around much more quickly if the deal was available right when people hear about it. If they hear about it now, there's a chance they'll forget about it tomorrow. Try and assume everyone is a forgetful idiot.

I wish I could experience this. Sadly I just got taken back to college and only have my laptop with me now. I hope when I come back after finals that RO2 has 20 times the population it has right now.

We actually try not to cover what we feel will be the most popular server settings so that server admins will step up and build communities around those servers (since ours will disappear)

Wow. This is pretty stunning --and generous. I really hope this brings the franchise to critical mass. All the tools seem to in place for a quantum leap forward.

What it normally is for a big sales event

And yes, we're hoping this will be a biggie. Hopefully it won't bring Steam to its knees. Actually, I sort of hope it will... but only cos that means its going well.

There should be plenty of press about it tomorrow. Just spread it around once it gets started...

If we can get it to the front page of reddit, I'm sure it will do great.

One question: My friend bought Rising Storm a few months ago, so he doesn't have RO2 single player. He wants to know If he gets this tomorrow, will he get RO2 single player?

I look forward to harvesting noobs over the next weeks

It has 1200 upvotes in r/games, which is pretty great already: http://www.reddit.com/r/Games/commen...er_if_you_get/
