Rising Storm FAQ
1) How do I buy Rising Storm?

You can buy it on the Steam Store page here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/35450/discussions/ or other digital and retail outlets.

2) How do I launch Rising Storm?

You launch the Rising Storm/Red Orchestra 2 Multiplayer app in your Steam Library.

3) What if I only own Red Orchestra 2?

You still launch the game from the Rising Storm/Red Orchestra 2 multiplayer app.

4) What if a server changes maps between Red Orchestra 2 and Rising Storm (or the other way around)?

You will be able to play all Rising Storm maps so you will not be kicked from the server (RS owners have access to all RO 2 multiplayer content).

Those who do not own Rising Storm will be limited to the rifleman role.

4.5) Why the rifleman role?

As the rifleman role contains the largest amount of available slots in play we figured this would be the best role to make available. Rifles are among the most deadly weapons on the battlefield and you will not be at a disadvantage to other players as long as you are playing the role properly.

5) Why did you do this?

Taking community feedback and looking at how other games had handled "Stand Alone Expansions" before such as Company of Heroes and the IL-2 series, we decided this was the best approach that would not split the community.
There are other factors as well. These include both games using the same engine and code base (keeping the total install size down for users with both), and that the SteamWorks back-end does not support games with different "AppID"s from connecting with each other.

If we had them as separate apps, players would need to download both games (even though they share an engine, code and some content) and they would not be able to play with each other.

6) Do I have to play Rising Storm?

No, you can join servers just playing RO 2 maps. If you are reading this close to launch it is likely that many server admins have both sets of maps in rotation.

7) What happened to my old RO 2 main menu?

It was replaced with what we feel is a better menu (that better represents all 4 nations now in the multiplayer environment). The old menu is in the RO 2 single player application.

8) Where is Single Player?

Single Player has been split into its own application. This was mainly due to the fact that Single Player tended to break in unexpected ways every time we patched the game. Now that it is its own application, this should no longer happen.

9) What about my Single Player progress?

You should be able to copy over your campaign progress from the RS/RO2 Multiplayer Install to the RO 2 SP Install.

10) Why isn't Rising Storm Free?

Because it is a Stand Alone Expansion and team behind it deserves to be rewarded for their hard work on the game.

11) But you said it would be free

No we did not. When we announced Rising Storm we said it would either be released as a free mod or a paid product depending on the quality of the product. We announced that we would be co-developing it and it would be a paid product many months ago.

11.5) Why does Rising Storm "favor" new buyers?

This answer is two parted.

1. The value of products goes down over time. The cost of the RO 2 multiplayer is built into the cost of Rising Storm. Those who own RO 2 are able to upgrade to the RS content at discount as well.

2. By giving RS buyers access to RO 2 it is all the more likely that these new players will be in RO 2 servers playing along side you. Players are content, and it is one of our jobs to make sure that players have other players to play with.

12) Will there be more RO 2 content?

Yes, we have plans for more. In the near future we will be releasing 3 more Official Custom Maps from the mapping contest.

What about RS content?

We also have several RS maps in the works.

What about weapons, vehicles, game modes and other things?

We were working on several of these things prior to Rising Storm, and we may continue them. We have to see community reaction and put work where the demand is. Those with the SDK will also find some of the experiments we have trialed or started developing for Rising Storm as well.

We no longer announce planned content goals, as we have learned a hard lesson about what happens if we miss those goals or our plans change.

Make sure you have PunkBuster properly installed. You may want to try manually installing it from the Even Balance website.

We are checking with Valve about this.

I'm glad you put up this FAQ. I didn't want to have to go through the trouble of writing up something myself, haha. I hope people stop complaining soon, but I foresaw this months ago.

Please change the Rising Storm/Ro2 name in steam library it looks so bad.
Maybe to Red Orchestra 2: Rising Storm

Got RO2 and system is autodownload Rising storm multiplayer
Is the full game or is only multiplayer map???
Is any campaign in Rstorm?'
thanks in advance.
[TW]Yoshiro  [dezvoltator] 30 mai, 2013 @ 3:41pm 
It is the combined RO 2 and Rising Storm multiplayer environment.

Rising Storm does not have a campaign. RO 2's campaign ha been split off to its own application.

WHAT, RISING STORM PLAYERS GET FULL ACESS TO RED ORCHRESTRA 2 AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND?????

Playing Red Orchestra 2 find for months and got the Rising Storm beta a couple days ago from a friend and played that fine too, now on launch day I can't seem to play either
What the hell? The game launches but every server kicks me
This has to be the most confusing/botched launch in a while (excluding the SimCity fiasco)

Are you having issues with punkbuster?
If so, do this:
Go to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Red Orchestra 2\Binaries\Windows
and run pbsvc_hos to reinstall punkbuster.

lovely write up

im glad that we dont have to worry about loosing connection to a server when it changes to rising storm, and that we can still play RO 2 with the same content / leveling ability and that we get to try out RS for "free". Obviously the restrictions suck but RO'2 players can atleast keep their levels and unlocks when playing a RO2 map

only miffed about one thing... i think the percentage off should be 33% instead of 25% for original owners of RO2 compare these prices

RS - 19.99, 25% off = 14.99
RS - 19.99, 33% off = 13.40

RSDD - 29.99, 25% off = 22.49
RSDD - 29.99, 33% off = 20.10

RS4P - 59.97, 25% off = 44.98
RS4P - 59.97, 33% off = 40.18

it may seem like im fussing over a couple dollars but i beleive this because the end price at 33% feel much more like a true discount for RO2 players and where it really would help is on the RS4P (4pack). RO2 Vets would be the most likely ones to buy this pack and the price at 33% would be just about 10 dollars per copy of the game. which would make the incentive to buy the pack as a gift for their friends because they would be gettting both RO2 and RS allowing vets to get their friends interested in the original RO2 while they are most likely already interested in RS.

As well I also do not see a discount on the RS store page it speaks of the discount but i dont see the discount available, even after a reset of steam (which usually fixes these sorta problems)

Thanks I'll try it
Managed to get int an official Tripwire Server, and after a few minutes of laggy play I was sessioned banned
I have no idea why either, my internet is killers (25down, 5up) and it's the only machine on in the house, never had these issues with RO2
