It's magical double-news time for splendid World War II multiplayer (because World War II was totally multiplayer
) shooter Red Orchestra 2
, with the appearance of new (although actually mostly old) maps via their big mapping competition, and a free weekend on the Steams
. Relatedly, these event coincide with news of the arrival of the original game, Ostfront 41-45, on non-windows based operating system for rich people, OSX. The new maps are from the Counterattack contest, and include Winterwald (overall winner, and snowy place), Arad 2 Tanks (which is the Red Orchestra map delivered unto RO2 for tank-war), Rakowice (also a Red Orchestra map, with Russians attacking an airfield), and Stalingrad Kessel (a user-made Red Orchestra map). And all that should amount to more places to make men meet their maker. As in God, not map maker. That would be weird.
Anyway! There's a video of the new maps below.
