Posted by on

Heroes of the West is a mod created by the RO2 community which brings the RO2/RS experience to the Western European theater, pitting the US forces against the German Wehrmacht. It also introduces a whole new faction, the British, bringing the 'Tommies' to the RO2 experience. The mod has been developed with support from the developers, Tripwire Interactive and Anti-matter Games. It includes 4 new maps, 5 new character sets and 10 new weapons.

The initial release of Heroes of the West on Steam will feature 4 maps:

  • Omaha Beach - The US 29th Infantry Division storm the bloody beaches of Normandy during the 'Longest Day', June 6th 1944, battling against well dug-in Wehrmacht troops of the 352. Infanterie-Division.
  • Carentan - Immediately after the invasion of mainland Europe on D-Day, units of the US 101st Airborne division fought to capture the key town of Carentan from the Fallschirmjäger-Regiment 6. This was the first encounter between US airborne troops and their German counterparts in the Western Front theater.
  • Port Brest - During the brutal fighting for the key port of Brest from 7 Aug to 19 Sept 1944, the 2 Fallschirmjäger-Division defend against the US 2d Ranger Battalion. This was an encounter between the best troops of both sides and involved bitter street to street battles.
  • Oosterbeek - Operation Market Garden was a bold attempt to get allied troops across the Rhine and into Germany before the end of 1944. In this map, troops of the British 1st Airborne defend the town of Oosterbeek against a mixed bag of German troops pushing into the key Rhine crossing at Arnhem, attempting to seize it back from the lightly armed British before the arrival of relieving mechanised ground forces.

How about the M1A1 Thompson? The M1928A1 Thompson wasn't used inthe western front that much....

Yes We actually have one in the works. The days of Americans swanning around with 50 round drums are numbered. However the British forces will keep the M1928.

Missing texture soldier?

There is currently an issue if you have character detail set to low in your graphics settings. We are aware of it and have already fixed it on our end. But in the mean time if you change that setting to medium the issue goes away.

Would like to see some clans in this mod, like in RO1-DH golden days.

Someone did just start a 1st airborne division clan based off the british in this mod. And there's always the existing ones.

I see, you wanna continuing to support the mod in the future, like vehicles, weapons and maps. I want to ask, whether you are planning a variety of skins, especially veteran (hero) skins, like red beret of british airborne or flecktarn for german troops, upgrades for weapons like RO and RS, winter maps with winter skins, like Bastogne, and spec ops weapons like Welrod, High Standard HDM, Sten MK VI, and De Lisle. Thank you. :)
