Default Red Orchestra 2 Beta Week 1 Report - new maps incoming!

Week 1 of the Beta has been a great success with tens of thousands of players getting their first taste of Red Orchestra 2. With the players' help we've been able to uncover and address several issues including a particularly nasty server browser issue which was duly fixed. After opening up the RO2 Beta with 3 maps (Fallen Fighters, Apartments and Gumrak), we are cycling in 3 more maps for everyone later today:
  • Grain Elevator - the iconic battle site in the south of Stalingrad featuring long range infantry fighting outdoors and room to room close quarters combat inside
  • Red October Factory - night-time fighting in the factory ruins on an epic scale with infantry and tanks fighting side by side
  • Barracks - a mix of close-quarter and medium-range combat, sure to be a fan favorite

All 3 maps will have both Territory and Countdown game modes, while Barracks also has the Firefight mode.

Screenshots for you on the front page!

Do the current maps get pulled out of the rotation? I wouldn't mind, personally. As a beta test we should focus on the next 3 maps without any distractions

Time to chew grain and kick-***, and I'm all out of grain.

Cheers Alan

It seems weird to remove maps in an update, that said, for bug testing purposes it would make more sense to restrict people to the 3 maps that they want testing.

Great job TW! So far it's proven to be the best game I've played this year so far, despite all the (understandable) bugs.

WOHOOO!

Do we get to keep the other three also? So we have a total of six maps? I just would love some more variety
