While all the focus in the FPS market is squared on Battlefield 3 vs Modern Warfare 3, Red Orchestra 2 is shaping up to be a surprise hit.
It may not have all of the Jerry Bruckheimer-esque flash of Modern Warfare 3, but Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad has been delighting fans since the beta launched last week.

There’s no chance of it competing with the big guns (at least not in sales,) but we’re pulling for this underdog to shake up the PC FPS market a bit.

Today Tripwire Interactive announced a few new levels for the beta including “Grain Elevator” (long-range and short-range hybrid map,) “Red October Factory” (infantry and tank map,) and “Barracks” (close quarters.)
