Red Orchestra in the Press

For those of you who haven't already spotted it, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 is gathering press coverage. The first two big articles are in the Christmas edition of PC Gamer in the UK and in the January issue of PC Gamer in the US. The UK version is in stores now, the US version will be in stores shortly - go buy yourselves a copy! No copies on the forums please - we'll post copies ourselves at some point in the future - but if you want to see them this side of Christmas - buy your own now!

Other articles coming up in the next couple of weeks, that we know of: PC Zone in the UK will be carrying an article on us, due in-stores around the 14th December. Around the same time, we are expecting coverage in "play" magazine in the US, as well as a piece in Computer Gaming World. The "play" piece should show some more good graphical content, while the CGW piece will be focussing more on the details of content of the game.

And, yes, we will be starting to post more media on the site in the next couple of weeks - so keep watching this space :)

Great, I can't wait for more media! If it's not too much to ask, could you make sure that if you only put one new picture up this coming week, it is from the new tank interior? I would love to see how the inside of the Tiger's fighting compartment looks. Hopefully some pictures of guys diving out windows as well!

Anything in Germany?
Nothing scheduled... yet ;)

And don't forget that I am only posting about the specific articles I know about. There is likely to be smaller items of coverage (as in the vast number of news posts on the net over the last 2 weeks) that we do not get any advance warning of!

whoa, I get a life and move to a different city and Red Orchestra blows up. Wow, I didn't know about any of this until about 15 minutes ago. Way to go guys. RO has come a long way from the fire bug and "worming" on Ponryi thats for sure. Congrats.

Great news! The more publicity the better for RO! I hope we start with a pretty big player base now. I'll be sure to get myself a few copies of these upcoming magzine issues.

Great news Alan! :) may I post some translated excerpts from those articles at RO.ru or it's an exclusive material?
I'm actually not 100% sure of the legal situation on this: we certainly can't give you permission to post bits from any of the magazines on the site, as we don't own the rights anyway.

I'd guess that the mags won't object to you posting chunks from the articles. The main thrust of any objections are where it would reduce their sales - which I can't imagine posting quotes in Russian will do :) However (disclaimer for legal reasons) - if you should decide to post quotes without permission and they come after you - don't blame me/us !

The US PC Gamer version was really a nice writeup by someone that has obviously had exposure to RO in the past and can contrast the retail version with the mod. There were some great screenshots too that would be nice to see in web form.

Just got the US PC Gamer. Been checking a few stores every other day or so to see if they had it yet, and they finally had it tonight! Everything looks cool, and it was a good read. Where is this crosshair... haha.

Just bought pczone uk and they have a full page interview with alan
Yup, they do - page 113, under their "Freeloader" pages. They did the interview before we released the news of Ostfront - they'll be doing a bigger piece or two in the New Year.

Which reminds me: please vote for Red Orchestra in PC Gamer UK's "most wanted" section - email your top 5 most wanted new games to mostwanted@futurenet.co.uk - but only if Ostfront is top of your list ;) !

Hey looks like you just had some French magazine coverage too. I don't speak French but babelfish tells me that it's the latest issue of 'Total PC Plays'. Unfortunately it's 3.3 they're discussing and not RO:O, but it all helps right. I found it at this [URL="http://www.pmods.net/news/UT%202004/Unreal%20Fantasy/Un%20v

Here is the english translation of that article:

"Red Orchestra is part of those mods that are so well made that you ask yourself if they're really the work of (work for free?) volunteers. Completely modifying UT2K4, it plunges you in the heart of the second world war, on the eastern front of the conflict. (more...)
Wether you chose to join the infantry, the artillery or the blinded divisions (metaphor for tanks), the immersion is total and immediate, such is the care given to the reconstitution of the combat and environments. All the maps are inspired from historical battles, just like the weapons, which accurately replicate those of the forces in action.The ambiance is of an impressive cridibility. While the 3.3 version should reach the front in the near future, you can already join your camarades, who are only waiting for you to experience this unique mod.
