Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45

Free "Darkest Hour" update released.

June 17, 2010: The Darkest Hour team and Tripwire Interactive are happy to bring you the latest installment for their mod for Red Orchestra. The latest release of Darkest Hour: Europe 44-45 brings new features, 2 new vehicles and 6 new maps, to update the most popular Red Orchestra mod.

The most exciting new feature is one that the Red Orchestra fans have been asking for, for quite a while: mantling. The Darkest Hour team is proud to bring you a full implementation of mantling, working in all the DH maps. For all those RO fans who have yet to try Darkest Hour – this could be the time!

The new vehicles are the American M36 Jackson "Slugger" and the German Panzer III Ausf. N. For these to roam around on, there are also 6 new maps from Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge:

Dog Green Beech on D-Day (a condensed re-release of the old Beta map) Freyneux and LaMormenil Hurtgenwald (back by popular demand) La Chapelle La Monderie Noville

On top of that, there is a HUGE change-list, with pages of other new and updated features and bug-fixes. As always, this Darkest Hour update is completely free to anyone who owns a copy of Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. DH will auto-update via Steam if you already have it installed – or you can install it for free from Steam – For the full details of all the additions, updates, changes and bug-fixes, head for the Darkest Hour forums on the website: It has been a long time coming – but it has been well worth the wait!
