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.
