Red Orchestra 2 Trailer and Multiplayer Q&A

This interview on GameSpy talks with some unnamed person or persons from Tripwire Interactive about Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, the upcoming World War II shooter sequel. The conversation focuses on multiplayer play, covering the morale system, the Suppression system, how to find and join servers, when the dedicated server software will be available, VOIP support, whether it will be playable with higher pings, when to expect mod tools, unlocks, and more. We also have a new trailer that combines live action and gameplay footage to show the recollections of a Russian veteran of the eastern front, in a manner of speaking. The embedded version follows.

There haven't exactly been a glut of them recently, its all about the zombies these days. It looks extremely well done and its like $28 at GMG with preorder code stacking so why not give it a chance? This is exactly the type of PC development I want to reward - dedicated server binaries, SDK, etc.

Okay, fine, you talked me into it. There, ya happy?

Well, you have the Vietnam mod. And the WW1 mod. And the Korean War mod. And the Wh40k mod. And the American civil war mod. And countless more in the work.

Watching this video clip sold me on this game.

http://youtu.be/wkk3SiywLHI

Looks like an amazing game. This looks a feels more like the BF3 I was hoping to get. Can't wait to play.

Green Man Gaming has this on sale as well, $33.99 instead of $35 on steam, plus they have the dig deluxe. They've had sales a lot in the past few weeks so keep an eye out there for even lower prices on this game. I paid $27.14, pretty happy about that!

Someone told me that Origin is made up of former Alienware employees, before Dell purchased Alienware. Supposedly I heard that they can build you a cabinet with water cooled ps3 and/or 360, custome stuff like that. I haven't verified if that's true.

I have preordered RO2. I played the crap out of RO1 and Killing Floor. RO2 is a true PC game and from past experience, I trust Tripwire to give me a lot of value from their games.

I'm glad they are trying to advertise to a wider audience. That means more noobies to shoot and increase my rankings/honor level quicker

For a second there I thought they were taking a jab at EA's "Origin" but it seems there is a laptop maker with that name.

They're definitely saying all the right things with regards to releasing a proper PC title, and for that alone I've preordered.

Not just laptops, it's a whole line of gaming computers. A few months back they made headlines everywhere with The Big 'O', a top-of-the-line system with an Xbox 360 built into the chassis. I don't know how or why EA came to use that name, but I'm sure their corporate lawyers had an easy time with any conflicts. Even the logo has an uncanny resemblance, except EA couldn't use the stylized 'O' in the word Origin.

In one of my conversations with John Gibson, he told me that they were partnering with Origins, the pc making enterprise. They would mention origins on marketing for the game and origins would bundle the game with some of their pcs. This talk was a while ago but I guess they're going through with it.

Oh, a helpful advice for people to enjoy the game more, watch the movie Stalingrad. It'll get you right into the mood.

There's a thread up on the Steam group for RO2 with a list of movies to get you in the mood.

A good tv spot but as a game trailer.... uuuuugh.

Still, at least they're trying to reach out (I think) to a broader audience, which is good.
