Focusing on the Battle of Stalingrad and surrounding operations, Heroes of Stalingrad allows the player to experience one of the most brutal battles in all of human history. For the first time ever in a first person shooter gamers will be able to experience WWII from the Axis side in a German single player campaign. As always with the Red Orchestra franchise, Tripwire will aim to deliver unrivalled accuracy and attention to detail, along with gritty, vicious combat in multi-player, co-op and solo modes.

Full Update Details

New Maps

Reichswald - 9th of Feburary 1945.

This is the very northern tip of the Siegfried line. British forces advance on a heavy German bunker position. While the outnumbered German forces desperately try and hold on. If the Germans fail the British have a clear path into the German mainland.

Hell's Corners - 6th June 1944.

American Airborne forces landed in farmland flooded by the German defenders to make crossing the terrain difficult. This is one of the locations where the flow of water is controlled, The Barquette Locks. Control of the locks mean the allies can start draining the fields.

Airdrop supplies.

On both Hell's Corners and Oosterbeek, Allied commanders can now request a supply drop from a C-47. Using the same markers as artillery these supply drops will contain weapons for players to pick up and use. As well as becoming an ammo resupply point on the map. They are faction specific weapons and generally contain a lot of automatic weaponry.

Game Changes

  • Fixed Normal/bump map on the G43.
  • Adjusted MG42 and MG34 hipfiring recoil.
  • Increased Jeep acceleration and maximum speed. It now performs better in the lower gears.
  • Fixed the M2HB textures.
  • Fixed clipping in the commander view of the Stug when you looked to the right hand side.
  • Removed the "Axis/Japanese suppression resistance bonus" from Rising storm which also affected the Germans in HOTW.
  • Fixed British levelling bonuses meaning they should now be in line with the other HOTW factions in terms of stats.

Map Changes

Oosterbeek

  • Adjusted Spawn Protection for Axis once A/B are captured
  • Added some missing Covernodes
  • Modifed coloring of the environment
  • Added Ammo Paradrop for Allies

Elsenborn

  • Modified Allies Spawn Protection for Objective C
  • Fixed Ground Collision near Objective B Bunker
  • Added more elevated Firing Positions for US in Final Objective trenches

Foy

  • Adjusted Lighting and Sky
  • Adjusted Fog
  • Added more Cover nodes
  • Split Intitial Allies Spawn zone into 3
  • Opened some houses behind A and B
  • Moved spawn 1 for allies closer to D when E, F, G active
  • Adjusted G cap zone size for easier entry
  • Added guardrails to stairways in some buildings
  • Raised Tickets for both teams significantly
  • Adjusted german spawns for the early objectives

Guys just a tip:Buy Rising Storm instead of RO2:HoS because when you get RO2:HoS you only get to play 1 class of RS.If you buy RS you get RS MP full and also RO2:HoS MP Full.But if you want campaign well maybe RO2:HoS is best for you

I have RS and RO2:HoS but I would actually want to play the campaigns and SP - they are not with the package - anybody help with this? Cannot get another copy of RO2:HoS on Steam as it claims I already have the game?! Catch 22? I hope not...

It's an unfix-able problem.

Ah! Not quite so ~ It did seem that way so I got in touch with Steam. They sent me a key to install a SinglePlayer HoS - Very Pleased. The SP/Campaign I got through rapidly, and having been an MP Player for a while before I got in touch with them, the Maps were familiar. For anybody viewing to buy the Package, this should be considered an option.
