    Working with Tripwire Interactive, the developers of Heroes of the West mod to RO2/Rising Storm, are proud to announce the release on Steam of an update to the mod to coincide with the anniversary of the Allied landings in Normandy on D-day 72 years ago.

    The update introduces 2 new maps, the first being a combined arms map featuring the British in a gruelling fight to break out from the Normandy beachhead in summer 1944. The map, Caen Outskirts, introduces the British Bren Carrier troop transport.

    The other map, Hill 400, recreates the bitter fighting in the winter of 1944 with the 2d Ranger Battalion struggling against Axis forces in the Hurtgen Forest.

    There have been numerous balance, technical and cosmetic additions and fixes introduced in this update, read the notes below to see them.
    Cool! :D

    Question: Why is it its own game in the Steam library? Can't it be implemented in the RS/RO2-game?

    It launches into RO2 if you launch heroes of the west. It just performs a bunch of pre launch checks to see if everything is correct when you launch heroes of the west from steam. However it currently lies to you saying you got problems when you don't. Even though it was working perfectly fine last week.
