Seems they are launching it as a full game on Steam, with a Unreal Engine License they won on Nvidia's "$1,000,000 Make Something Unreal" contest.

Tripwire Interactive today announced a new World War II PC game, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. Tripwire will deliver its award-winning first person shooter via Steam, Valve's online content delivery system. The original Red Orchestra won Nvidia's "$1,000,000 Make Something Unreal" contest. Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 is a standalone follow-up, built on Epic’s Unreal 2.5 EngineTM, that introduces new gameplay and features.

On a side note, as anyone using steam has already seen in the Steam update.
Darwinia is also going on sale on Steam.

Seems we got a new Indie gaming scene going here.. hopefully really lowcost games..

Steam's "standard" price of $20 is just too high for some games, Darwinia included when you consider the lack of packaging and no middleman. Games like that should be $15, tops.

Yeah.. wonder how the money is divided?
I take it Valve takes their slice for bandwidth and whatnot..

Its good that small devs get a delivery system and all, but they should keep prices down really..
