Red Orchestra is the award winning state of the art total conversion that pits players in scale combat of the most intense and grueling warfare in history; the Eastern Front conflict of World War II. Real missions set in real scale settings -- from elite tactical units vieing for control of strategic industrial assets in close quarter combat, to brutal heavy infantry assaults and bayonet charges to take tactical objectives, to heavy mechanized armor units battling for strategic control of entire cities in blistering exchanges of fire power -- Red Orchestra delivers unprecedented tactical realism of in epic scope -- on a human scale...

What is your mod about and what do you think caused it to win this award?
Red Orchestra is a combined arms combat simulation set on the Eastern Front of World War Two. Our goal is quite simple, to create the most realistic and immersive simulation of ground combat ever created. The answer to that is the same reason why we have been so successful so far. We want to reinvent the way people play first person shooters, and we have been uncompromising in that goal. I like to think of Red Orchestra as IL2-Sturmovic on the ground. We are reinventing the war-based FPS , much like IL2 reinvented and reinvigorated the combat flight sim.
Since 2002 we have explored, played and enjoyed mods of all shapes and sizes just like Red Orchestra. We love games like Unreal Tournament 2004 that have opened themselves up to modding. Because of communities like Workshop, Nexus, Curse, RTSL, GameBanana and Mod DB, more games support modding today than ever before.
Let's celebrate modding
As mods play a bigger role in the future of gaming, we believe it is important to recognize the effort the teams behind the work put in, giving us countless hours of enjoyment while asking nothing in return. We have the power to change our games and that needs to be celebrated to ensure it remains a big part of PC gaming's future.
It all started
In 2015, when the paid modding dispute left many gamers and modders worried about the direction the industry is headed. Things have since settled down, but we believe it is important to continue this small tradition to show we are not alone in our love for mods, and the open platforms that embrace them.
Mod Appreciation Week
Nothing is more motivating than knowing something you've built is being enjoyed by others. So this week if there is a mod you love on Mod DB (or anywhere else), make the effort to shout out to them, mention and link their mod in a tweet, blog, forum or facebook post with the hashtag #modlove2016 (or click the icons above for a pre-built post).
