Tripwire Interactive's WWII-era first-person shooter series continues by showcasing what proved to be a turning point in the war, and of the deadliest single engagements in the history of warfare, in Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. The main campaign focuses on the events leading up to and surrounding the Battle of Stalingrad, allowing gamers to join the German army as it assaults Stalingrad, or follow the Russian forces as they repel the attack and deal a major blow to the Axis forces.
Developers tapped the "Unreal 3" proprietary engine in an attempt to accurately portray the action, including the use of first-person cover that allows for peeking and blind fire, realistic WWII weaponry with true-to-life ballistics and bullet penetration, squad command and flanking, and a morale system that takes into account the mental stress placed on soldiers embroiled in deadly conflict. Other single-player modes include shooting-range and assault-course challenges designed to help gamers hone their skills, earn awards, and win competitions, while a "Skirmish" mode lets players try out any level or campaign. Online features include multiplayer co-op in campaigns or skirmishes, competitions, leaderboards, and persistent stat-tracking and player progression, with the best of players earning a "Hero" rank that allows for access to the best weapons.
