What was once one of the best mods of its day (having won the $1,000,000 Make Something Unreal competition), is now only a few weeks from hitting the shelves as a fully fledged, no-shortcuts-taken awesome game. What is even better, is RO's drive to support and help out the mod community and that is why (thanks to Tripwire Interactive) we now have a handful of Steam Beta access keys to give out. So if you are like me and counting down the days to this games release, stop waiting because you have a chance to get playing right now.

How? Well we just need a few enthusiastic volunteers who want to give this game a good hammering / thrashing. Respond to this news post if interested, and this time 2 days from now - we will pick a few people at random and give them access via their Steam account. It couldn't be easier to jump onto the battlefields during WWII. For more information about this game, head to the Red Orchestra official homepage, or jump onto the Red Orchestra Game Profile here at the Mod DB.

I'm definitely interested. I'm a very critical person, not easily satisfied, so if something is not the way it should be, I will say so. I've got a decent computer (AMD X2 4200+, 2 GB RAM, MSI K8N Diamond, XFX 7800 GT, ...) and I've been looking forward to this game. I hope it is as realistic as it looks like it is. I used to be an Operation Flashpoint player, if the game is anywhere near the realism of OFP, then it will be a wonderful game. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

Id just like to apologise for my unprofessional comment before. I would be honoured to recieve a beta access key and help Tripwire Interactive squash any bugs they may have with the game to prepare it for release. Although i would be upset not to recieve a access key, i believe it should go to those worthy of it and who will help with the process of the game and not just want a free trial.

I'd like to be a beta-tester for RO Ostfront 41-45, and don't worry, I'm not one of those "OMG BETATEST GIMMEH SO I CAN PLAY BUT NOT HELP AT ALL OMGZU13777!!11"-guys, I've been a beta-tester for several HL-Mods already(Taskforce, Move-In, 1944 D-Day), and know that beta testing doesn't only mean you can play it before the others, no but that you really have to work finding bugs.

So while this little text probably was useless, since in the news it says you're picking people randomly, I still hope I might have luck :)

As a previous beta tester on many games , I would love the privilage to test and iron out any remaining bugs before release. System specs are about standard for now allowing fps and dx 9 features testing.

Daemon_92 Mar 4 2006 says:

I am all for WWII FPS Games and Red Orchestra seems to give me all what I waited all my live for:
Realistic Recoil (Damn CoD2!). Realistic tank driving and a endless list of what is realistic.
Thats how games should be.
Also I like the support of them. Realeasing SDK, MOD tools and all that stuff
I hope I can get in the mod scene with this help
Greaty appreciated
Good luck to everyone

Mfg daemon

Would love to help beta-testing this fine game! Been playing the UT2004 mod for some time, and pre-bought Ostfrost as soon as I could. The beta would top it all off nicely!
