The beta for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad has been opened for players who pre-purchased the deluxe edition of the game. It's available on Steam now, and if you get in you'll have almost two full weeks of practice before the game launches on September 13. The beta features only part of the game's content, with three playable maps in the game modes Countdown, Territory, and Firefight.
Red Orchestra 2 is a brutally realistic, tactical, multiplayer WWII shooter for PC. The game focuses on team-based online matches and gives deluxe pre-orderers a day one unfair advantage by unlocking several elite assault weapons and semi-automatic sniper rifles. We're confident players without the resources necessary to go around downloading deluxe versions willy-nilly will be able to band together and overthrow the economically elite beta community, despite its advantage in equipment and play time.
