PSA: Tomorrow for 24 hours Red Orchestra 2 will be Free!

 

Yes, Free! By navigating to http://store.steampowered.com/app/35450/ and downloading the game tomorrow after the promotion starts and before it ends (the promotion will last 24 hours), the game will be free to keep forever! 

Following this, we will be rolling into a free weekend for Rising Storm (free for a limited time) as well as a discount! If you've been trying to convince a friend to play Red Orchestra 2 with you, there will be no better time than tomorrow!

advertising other games is not of WG's interest or no

He isn't advertising, this is more like a PSA.

 

Plus, off-topic section.

It's a forum post for a free game, it doesn't affect WG's intrest.

I've been deciding whether or not to actually get into this game.  A couple guys I know play it, but it seems very eh to me.  At the same time it seems pretty damn cool too.  I'll think about it I guess.

And yes this game has tanks.

Only the Panzer IV G I think and the T-34/85 but they are all fully detailed and you can play as any crew member and the game provides full interior details.

The game just needs more people playing the tank only matches, they are pretty fun.

Free is Free, there is not strings attached. you can't go wrong with this. If you end up not liking it uninstall it.

 

Also there is realistic tank gameplay. Much different than WoT But fun none the less.

oh yeah, i own the game and rising storm. it's really, cool, awesome/semi-realistic.

 

only downside is it takes a couple min to sneak into one of the popular servers..

and having to rely on your team mates who are operating the tank with you.

 

don't go into it like it's CoD!

-if you dont use cover, you're gonna have a bad time

-if  you get surpressed, you're gonna have a bad time

-if arty is called on you, you're gonna have a bad time

-if a tank sees you, you're gonna have a bad time

-if a sniper sees you, you're gonna have a bad time

-if you don't know proper shooting mechanics, you're gonna have a bad time

 

You have to know how to estimate bullet drop and lead

One shot can AND will kill you.. German forces didn't use the Kar 98k because it was a tickle gun would they.

Team work matters

Strategy matters

The game feels more realisitc and each spawn ticket has a role to play/goal to work towards

Some matches can take 45min-1hour and it's a very awesome hour of pure WWII violence (Bridges of Druzhina is awesome)

It's perfect timing too. Instead of complaining that World of Tanks is broken take a break from the game and get Red Orchestra 2. Hell I reinstalled Rainbow Six Vegas 2. Best Idea ever.

 

Enjoy. Also bump this thread every so often so others know about it. Be sure to tell all your friends.

 

And those who don't use steam should give it a try.

I own this game and it is very fun and I recommend it, has some realistic elements and as listed as above you can be one shot and cover is your friend and so are bandages. Tank only servers are amazing but are often not populated with many people and there are only about 8 tank only servers, last time I was on one the map was gumrak and it was only a 5v5 just to give you an idea on how many people play tank only servers and that was a few weeks ago, hopefully there will be more on because of the free day tomorrow. Also I need to break out my lvl 50 factory new Mosin Nagant with the bayonet again and play on Grain Elevator just like the old days. If anyone wants to play RO2 with someone tomorrow im willing to play so add me if you want.

Good. Now when Victoria 2 or Europa Universalis 4 are free  for 24 hours, plz tell me.

 

Red Orchestra 2 looks like a good game, but I never got around to doing anything about it.

I bought it back when it was $0.99.

 

I wish RisingStorm isn't so linear map-wise.

There have been a new patch adding half-tracks, that's why the promotion is going on.

 

If you are interested, we do have clans in this game, you can PM me for more information.

 

Hail the 29th Infantry Division.
