Red Orchestra 2 releases SDK, brings mods to the people

As of yesterday, everyone who owns the military FPS Red Orchestra 2 is now entitled to the game’s SDK (Software Development Kit), so says the ruling party at Tripwire Interactive.

While a limited version of the kit has already been available to “select modders,” the Georgia-based developer has opened it to the public to spur the creation of “everything from simple mods and mutators, through custom maps and on to full total conversion mods.”

 Thanks to the pre-release, there are already three total conversion mods in the works: Rising Storm, In Country Vietnam, and Iron Europe. The mods are set in Guadalcanal, Vietnam, and 1914 Europe, respectively. The first two have debuted trailers with striking period soundtracks.

The mod and map-making revolution has begun. You can grab Red Orchestra 2 on Steam. The SDK is available through the ‘tools’ tab.

    Very exciting but maybe a bit late. I don't doubt the modding community will seize the chance to make a lot of high-quality stuff, though it'll take a lot to get the player base built back up.
