Red Orchestra 2 to sport VAC and Punkbuster

By Brenna Hillier, Monday, 20 June 2011 00:59 GMT

Super hardcore shooter Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad is going to be almost as tough on cheaters as it is on newbs fresh from Modern Warfare 2, using both Valve Anti-Cheat and Punkbuster.

Punkbuster confirmed its technology’s inclusion, as well as that of Valve Anti-Cheat, following a reveal at the Tripwire Interactive Conference on competitive gaming.

Punkbuster staff believe Heroes of Stalingrad may be the first game to support both anti-cheat systems.

Red Orchestra: Heroes of Stalingrad is the sequel to Ostfront 41-45, notorious for its realism, difficulty and deeply addictive team multiplayer. It’s expected on PC in August.
