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.

Hey guys-

I've beta-tested multiple mods and retail games in the past in addition to actually helping with development. I'd certainly be interested in beta-testing Red Orchestra.

I understand you guys have a few beta keys still available and I wanted to see if there was a way to get hold of one. I believe I would be a good person to recieve a serial key because my computer is not any ordinary computer, it contains an amazing graphics card, a 40" monitor and 6.1 surround sound. The ability to beta test a powerful program such as Red Orchestra on a computer like mine is not a privelege everyone gets. I was hoping to get a serial so I can truly enjoy another of one valve's wonderful programs. Anything that you can do for me would be unspeakably wonderful. I really would love to have a key!! :)

What makes a true "Beta tester"? Is it someone to look for bugs? Definitely. Is it someone who will enjoy the game? Maybe. Most importantly, however, it is someone who will be able to determine errors, bugs, flaws, perform with an unbiased attitude, and I emphasize this in particular, the ability to view things from a scope beyond one's own opinion. A tester has to know what Gamers want, and I believe I can and will satisfy the call for other players. That, and a bit of skill at First Person Shooters never hurt.

MrSneakyman Mar 5 2006 says: a stay at home dad that attends classes at night. I love playing CS and for the past month have logged crazy hours playing it once again after a long absence. However, CS is becoming really borring to me now, even the custom only map servers bore me. I really need a change of pace and feel this would be it!! I promise to still give my daughter all the love, food, clothing, attention, and diaper changes(yuk) she needs through out the day! :) For the love of all things holy please choose me!! :)

DrStrangeloveStriker Mar 5 2006 says:

I am another disappointed COD2 player who cannot wait to convert to ROOST. It appears to be everything that I have hoped for in a WWII shooter. This game looks so good, that I have also been spreading the word to all those I play with on line.

Having said this, I have already pre-ordered & pre-loaded through STEAM and would greatly appreciate to get the chance to help RO out with the BETA testing. Anything I can do to help out by giving constructive feedback on this fantastic game.

Please consider me as a BETA Tester.

Thank you.

Whoops I posted wrong place b4 just realised...

The waiting is killing me too. I'm a server admin on NZ CoD servers and a moderator on the forums, and have been playing that game for 2 years (1 & 2), but now its time to hang up the boots as the real competition comes to town. Yet the game is bringing out those child-like symptoms of not being able to wait for christmas.

My symptoms include posting too much in the RO forums to pass the time and pimping this game hard to everyone in the NZ CoD community. Its also 2am here so I must make it brief and get to bed. With my account setup on our forums every post I make is basically an ad for this game.

I never played the mod myself and am all the more itching and curious to get stuck into this great work of art. Happy to help with testing in any capacity to help deliver a wonderful game to the world.
