Tripwire Interactive today announced that its popular WW2 mod Red Orchestra is heading to Steam as Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. Red Orchestra for UT2004 won NVidia's $1,000,000 Make Something Unreal contest, and with the Unreal Engine 2.5 license won through the contest the game will now be a stand-alone product. There's no word on when Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 will show up on Steam.
"Digital content delivery is the future of gaming, and we are very excited to be a part of that future" said Tripwire Interactive President John Gibson. "Working with Valve to release the game over Steam allows Tripwire to remain independent and keep control of the games content and development. This allows Tripwire to continue to offer our fans the same uncompromising level of realism, authenticity, and gameplay they have come to expect from Red Orchestra while continuing to innovate and push the boundaries of the military FPS and simulation genres."
