Red Orchestra 2 GOTY edition announced

Here's yet another Game of the Year edition for you, folks. Tripwire Interactive has announced a re-release for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, thanks to a nod from PC Gamer. This means a new free content pack for all current owners of the game, plus a free Steam weekend to try out the game and decide if you want to give it a go.

The content pack will feature an "Action" mode with a crosshair, easier aiming, toned down recoil, reduced damage, and access to a lot of weapons from the get-go; a "Classic" mode with a more tactical feel from the first game; a new Mamayev Kurgan map; and various adjustments to vehicles and game performance.

The game's free Steam weekend will start at 10 AM Pacific time this Thursday, May 24, and lasts through Sunday, May 27. The new content pack will launch sometime before the free weekend, so you'll be able to try it out.
