Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 early March

Thu Feb 16, 2006 10:42 pm

Anyone's who has played the UT2004 mod, Red Orchestra, knows what I'm talking about. This is a realistic WW2 FPS. The creaters won the Make Something Unreal Contest and got one million dollars and a license to the Unreal 2.5 engine (and possibly future iterations of the engine).

Now the team that created the mod is its own company and are creating Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. Ostfront means "East front" where this game takes place and battles are fought between Nazis and Bolsheviks.

Some of its features:
  • No crosshairs
  • 3d ironsights
  • bullet drop
  • ballistics-based damage, so damage is based on:
    • bullet mass
    • bullet velocity on the moment of impact
    • Location
  • prone
  • artillery system with radios and spotters
  • realistic vehicles with armor penetration and modeled internal components
  • magazines (keeps track of the number of bullets in each magazine when you switch them)
  • manual bolting for the bolt-action rifles
  • limited weapon classes
Since this is a stand-alone, some new features were added:
  • leaning
  • propping your weapons on ledges and objects
  • revolutionary movement system including crouched sprinting, standing sprinting, diving,
    and more.
There will be new weapons added, bringing it to a total of 28 weapons and new vehicles, bringing the total to 14 different vehicles.

Supposedly, this game runs better than the mod, so it will be easily hardware accessible to almost anyone.

It is due to be released in early March. It is going to be released on Steam and in stores.
