Default Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45

This is pretty much in competition to Fallguys thread, but a little competition now and then is a healthy thing And anyway, they're somewhat dissimilar game types.

I'm going to take this opportunity to re-mention Red Orchestra, and since I can't seem to write any kind of description that doesn't sound lame or propaganda-ish, here's a copy/paste of the overview section

Key Features

* Fight intense battles on 13 authentic Eastern Front combat environments

* Crew 14 fully realized vehicles with highly detailed exterior and interior models

* Choose from 28 authentic infantry weapons

* Full 32 player online Multiplayer Support

* Unique Setting – the only FPS to focus on the WWII Russian Front

* Engage enemy tanks at 800 metres and more with the Simulation-level armored vehicle combat

* Fight the full range of combined arms infantry and vehicle combat in detailed environments based on real-world data, from city-centre to deeply rural settings

* Realistic bullet and projectile ballistics will make you duck for cover

* Coordinate strategies with your team-mates via Voice Over IP

* Authentic Immersive Sound FX and 3d Positional Sound System

* 3d “Iron Sights” and unique 3d scope system

* True weapon deployment system including resting rifles on support

* Historically accurate artillery system

* Distance-based sound system dynamically creates the battle ambiance

* Advanced player movement system featuring diving over obstacles and leaning

* Custom 8 way animation system for highly realistic player animations

Some background: the mod version of the game won $50,000 and two engine licences from the Make Something Unreal contest, and the devs have had going on eight months to build a really incredible game, from what we've heard on the forums. The changelog apparently runs over a hundred pages

Primary release of the game is going to be over steam, and there will be a box version in stores. Release date is sometime in march.

Questions?

And they just don't let me quit

RO is now available for pre-order and pre-load over steam, for the low, low price of 22.50 american after pre-order discount. (but before taxes) I'm preloading right now, and ordering soon. WHeeeeeeeEE!

(Sorry for giddiness, but this just really excites me )

(And I'm not giggling either )

So: it's out, its cheap and its *awesome* (though only if you like realism)

There should be a demo soon, for anyone interested. I'll update here when it comes out.

Ostfront Forever!
