The first MOD released, Mare Nostrum, allows players to experience some of the fiercest battles of WWII across North Africa and Italy. The MOD adds three new nationalities to the game including the British, Australians and Italians as well as adding the German Afrika Korps. Featuring 8 new maps, 8 new weapons and 10 vehicles the game play is varied from gritty street to street fighting in urban surroundings to all out tank warfare in the open desert.
To celebrate all this - and to further encourage everyone to try the game and the mods - Tripwire is dropping the price of Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 for the weekend to just $4.99. The mods will appear in your Steam Games list and will now be automatically updated just like any other game released through Steam.
Red Orchestra is available via Steam and at retail outlets worldwide.
