Rising Storm is a mod for the soon-to-be-released title from Tripwire Interactive, Heroes of Stalingrad. It will bring the intense and realistic firefighting of 'Heroes of Stalingrad' to the Pacific Theater, 1942-45, pitting the US Army and Marine Corps against the Imperial Japanese Army and Special Naval Landing Forces. The bloody multiplayer battles will be fought out across the Pacific from the Philippines through to Okinawa and will feature all the innovations of 'HoS' and a few more of its own. The development team features some of the leading lights of the Red Orchestra modders along with some very strong candidates from the various CG communities that can be found across the world. There are over 20 of the top 'stars of the future' on the team, thanks to the support of Tripwire. The mod team team have been given advance access to the development tools to bring all the latest features of the Unreal engine to bear on this project, promising a superlative gaming experience.

Post news Report RSS Face Model Competition!

Together with Tripwire Interactive and our good friends at Gaming Deluxe servers, we at Rising Storm are bringing you an exciting competition to help while away the hours until Heroes of Stalingrad releases...

Posted by on

Enter our competition by submitting some photos of yourself (see rules below) and you could appear in-game in Rising Storm as a playermodel US marine or soldier or as a member of the IJA - Japanese entrants only. We already have a number of very high-profile Japanese people in-game as the player models (formula one racing driver, owner of large soft drinks company, son of a very famous actress etc.) so we only need one more Japanese face. For the US player models we still need 8 more.Not only will the winners appear in-game but the 9 selected winning entrants will get one of the following prizes:

  • Digital Deluxe Edition of 'Heroes of Stalingrad' (3 prizes)
  • Killing Floor 'Bio-Cola' T-Shirt (3 prizes)
  • IS-2 Greatest Tank of WW2 T-Shirt (3 prizes)

The rules are simple - email to us at this address This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with 2, and only 2, photos, one from the side, one from the front; showing your face without any glasses, hats, beards, moustaches etc. These photos should each be less than 250kb. The email title should be "Face Competition Entry". Name, age and email address should all be included. Any entries not following these guidelines will be ignored.We will choose 9 winning candidates to go in the game on the basis of suitable looks (19- to 30-something years old, reasonably fit-looking, 8 US, 1 Japanese). We then contact these winners to sign a release and also to get more detailed photos so we can model them accurately. Once they are done, the winners will also receive a render of their face attached to a player model in uniform.

Competition ends on September 10th, winners announced on the 12th.

Argh. I'd love to sign up but I am not very keen on shaving my goatee and mustache.
Besides, I am middle-eastern (Iran) so I doubt it will look right anyway.

I even have a super nice Nikon D5100 so I could snap some nice high quality pictures too.

But is it ok if we send a pic in where you can see the conture and shape of my face? I have a really Japanese beard growth, hence its thin, and you can see my chin good. I would be willing to cut off my moustace :3
