I’ve mentioned this once or twice over the past year – the makers of the superb Red Orchestra mod for Unreal Tournament 2k4 won the ‘Make something Unreal’ contest and won a license for the Unreal Tournament engine. The product that came out of that, Red Orchestra, Ostfront 41-45, is just about to launch. The preload on Steam has started as of today, meaning you can sign in, buy it, and have it waiting on your hard drive when they launch the game, which is something I’ve done. If you do it now you get 10% off, the game is only $24.95. There’s also a gameplay movie on the site I’ve linked to if you’re potentially interested. I can offer that this and Forgotten Hope have been my two favorite mods of the last several years, and I have really high hopes for this game. It’s much more of a simulator than a run n gun action game, so keep that in mind if you’re considering it. I’ll post again if they offer up a demo or barring that once I’ve played some and have a sense of how the game is.
