Red Orchestra 2 free on Steam this weekend

Friday, 5th April 2013 06:32 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is by the guy who said that Call of Duty is ruining a generation of shooter players. If you’ve been raised on a diet of Activision’s offerings, you may not want to participate in the free Steam weekend for Red Orchestra 2, actually, because it’s unrelentingly unforgiving; hugely focused on realism and teamwork; and has a learning curve so steep you’ll probably tip over backwards a few times on the way up – as opposed to Call of Duty’s fun-from-the-get-go approach. However, if you master it, you can proudly call yourself a skilled gamer indeed, so get out there, kids, and remember to keep your head d- oh, never mind, you’ve got another one. If you like what you see, it’s on sale for $3, which is shamefully cheap.

Thanks, Destructoid.

    I got this for Pat for Christmas one year. I think he played about 20 minutes before chucking a tanty and giving me a pay cut. If you ask him nicely he might try again this week.

    To me a “skilled gamer” is one that is generally good at all types of games and not just based off one type of genre

    OR you can get it here in the newest humble weekly sale for as little as $1 with Red Orchestra 1 or for $2.90 with Killing Floor Gold Edition that has 11 of the 13 dlcs included in it, massive deal if you like it

    How is this compared to ArmA? Recently been getting into ArmA3 and I love it.
