Karelian Front is Continuation War modification for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. Continuation War was fought between Finland and the Soviet Union in '41-'44. The war ended in Finland's defeat. Our goal is to create a historically accurate total conversion modification for RO2, without forgetting the fun gameplay. The team behind the mod is so far Finnish with varying modding experience: some working in the gaming industry, some have done mods before in RO and for other games, and some are totally green. Good mix of people, eager to stop the long lasting outcry for this mod. Chat with the devs at our IRC channel #karelianfront @ QuakeNet.
Track and support!

Forests of Finland

News 8 comments

And we're back! This time we got some more progress to show you, a nice little treat to decorate your desktop and some information about the future.

First of all, some say that Karelian Front will just be Red Orchestra 2 in a different location. Russian forest, Finnish forest, German forest, all the same. What's the difference? However we think that northern vegetation hasn't ever been done properly in games and that is what we want to change. We want to get the full potential from forest which offer a battleground with rocks, hills and dense undergrowth.

You can see from the in-game shot that there is still too much space, and that we are not there yet as Unreal Engine provides us with all kind of challenges to overcome. But when we are ready, you will have an unique environment to play around in. And let me tell you, you'll love it! ;)

Alright, lets move to the stuff you all want to see and are here for. Our first map, Tyrjä, is getting along nicely and we've got another progress photo to show to you. And for those wondering, we are also working on other maps too! However we want to focus on showing how one of the map progresses. We'll bring the rest to the public when it's time.

Secondly, what kind of Finnish war map would it be if it didn't have birch trees? We have got those covered as well! Along with some rocks to create new kinds of shapes to the environment for players to take cover in.

And finally, some beautiful concept art which we're offering to you to use as a background image on your computer!

And that's all we got for you this time. Thanks to everyone who has been supporting us so far. You're the best! Also, don't forget that we are always recruiting for all kinds of talent. So whether you are a coder or a 3D artist, and you would like to work on this awesome project, don't hesitate to contact us via our website.

And don't forget to follow us in our official pages in Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Steam and ModDB.

Alright, lets cut to the chase everyone. I'm being completely honest by saying that we've been very (if not too) quiet for the last 6 months. We are currently...

Any new media releases or updates in the new future? It's been 4 months and I'm pretty sure there are many people thinking if this is alive or not.

Hi all people!

I don't think this is the right place to discuss this, but I will give it a try. My game (Red Orchestra 2) is crashing a lot lately. There isn't a single day in which I play it and it doesn't crashes to desktop at least 2-3 times. That did not happen before the latest patches.

Has anyone had this problem as well? If so, is there any advice you could give to me?

Someone told me that the problem could be related to Google Chrome, which sounded a bit strange to me, and other people told me that Google Chrome has nothing to do with Red Orchestra. What do you know about this?

Thanks in advance boys. I hope Tripwire Interactive releases a new patch soon, fixing this issues (as well as the SP campaign) instead of just adding Steam workshop content...

Anyway, best regards to all.
