Red Orchestra 2 Counterattack Map Pack Released; Free Weekend on Steam
Now that the $35,000 Counterattack Mapping Contest for Red Orchestra 2 has concluded and helped us find the best community made maps on Steam Workshop, Tripwire Interactive has worked with the original map makers to polish them up and add them into the game as Official Custom Maps. Today we are releasing four of those maps for Red Orchestra 2 completely free - they will be automatically added to your game through Steam. And, to make sure that everyone gets a chance to try them out, we're making Red Orchestra 2 free to play for the weekend Thu 4 Apr through Sun 7 Apr). Just head for Steam, download the game and play.

These are some of the best maps you'll see - adding some great new gameplay. All are included for free for everyone who owns the game. Don't forget there are more great community maps and content on Steam Workshop, so head on over there now! We've also got a trailer for the pack - with the content produced by the community, to show off what they enjoy! You can view it on Vimeo (http://"[url=https://vimeo.com/63339846") or Youtube (http://"[url=http://youtu.be/voD9_V2oJ3w")

The first Counterattack Map Contest Pack contains the following new maps:

  • Winterwald - the wintry map that won the contest outright; Germans attacking a Russian hill-top position through the trees and snow.
  • Arad 2 Tanks - the classic Red Orchestra "Arad" map brought forward into Red Orchestra 2; now a warm, sunny environment for some serious tank-to-tank combat.
  • Rakowice - another classic Red Orchestra map, updated for the new generation; Russians assaulting the ruins of a German-held airfield in Poland.
  • Stalingrad Kessel - one of the most loved RO maps, created in the original mod, reproduced in the first Red Orchestra game and now brought forward into its latest incarnation!

Great job TWI! This is how other games should embrace community made content.

I too would like to see half tracks. Don't like Realism mode? Just play classic mode then. The series is far from dead.

hey guys it wont let me download the game for free. it takes me to the top of the page when i click the button it says to for it. i was told to restart steam. does that mean just to hit X, and open it again? if it is, i tried that. but its probably not the meaning, cause im sucha fricking computer noob.

What about Bridges of Druzhina? Didn't that win some map contest? Still, glad to see some added as officials.

Bridges and several of the other maps are still undergoing further development before they are added as official customs.

Are plans for more vehicles still in the works?
