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

I have one annoying problem. Every time I get into game (multi, single and even in menu) I experience constant freezes (duration 3-4 seconds) every 1-2 min, between the freezes it is all normal. IDK what to do. It seams it does not matter if I run it in max or lowest settings, it is always 40+ fps. I tried everything, runing in admin mod, deleting old inis, reinstalling my game, disabling sound and so on. But nothing helps. Every other game works perfectly, except this one, and I would really like to play it normaly without constant retardations. Please anyone help.

RO2 is currently part of the weekly Humble Bundle (2nd April 2013) and can be picked up for a few $2.

If you are interested now is the time to grab it.

Also In Country Vietnam is looking to fill a few positions so check our jobs page

Over the weekend there have been on average 7000+ players playing. Hopefully this number will stay as high in the coming weeks.

The upcoming expansion/mod Rising Storm and the mod I'm working on In Country Vietnam will hopefully bring in more.

Yeah, the added easy modes attracted lots of new players. It's sad that this had to be done, the population was at a nice ~6000 daily before BF3 came out. 6000 team players who appreciated its hardcore nature.

I'm wondered..
People still play this? Or only the deceived RO1 fans who was "happy" to get so "good" seequel?
Even old, non realistic posed BF1942 have much more assets (what to say here, if even just а mod FH2 is about to have everything from RO2 x10 times and upcoming Eastern Front update)

Look at Iron Front: Liberation 1944 it is how was RO2 in my mind, but I was mistaken...

If you want to know what deceiving means, look at BF3 and OFP:RR .

And didn't even bother with TCGR:FS .

Calling the game a true sequel to BF2 and continuation of the core PC franchise when it is in fact a sequel to BF: BC2, just with different game characters.

BTW, we are on the Mod DB website *hint hint*

iron front , realease with no dedicated server, and with more bugs
then... something with lots of bugs. And right now the game is so dead, that the only server on is a russian server with no anti-hack service. And even then they are trying to sell a DLC with less then 10 new models for 10 dollers. And when they said "powered with the arma2 engine" they meant we copy pasted EVERYTHING.

That game made me sick

Same to the new Rising Storm DLC
Not really a fan of Arma 2, just that was an example/concept
RO2 just too limited to close quarters combat with lack of many elements of battle.

There are plenty of long range engagement maps for RO2 out there, both official and community-made...

But yeah, more than a year later there is not enough non-map content...
