Rising Storm Teases Again
1C and the Rising Storm Team are excited to start the New Year with the teaser trailer, showcasing Iwo Jima, one of the maps for their Pacific Theatre expansion to Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, the critically acclaimed WW2 first-person shooter.
This is the first of the maps for Rising Storm to be announced and features the beaches and tunnels of the heavily defended 'home island' with its iconic landmark, Mt Suribachi. The Rising Storm Team is also proud to make public the inclusion on their team of Harlan Glenn, a researcher/author who has made a lifelong vocation of studying the battles of the Pacific and has produced and presented several programs on the subject for the History and Discovery Channels. As someone who has visited the battlefields that appear in Rising Storm, and an expert on the equipment used by both sides, he will be making sure that the game is as true to the reality of the Pacific theatre as possible. Rising Storm brings the gritty realism and intense action of Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad to the Pacific Theatre, pitting the US Marines and Army against the Imperial Japanese Army in some of the iconic battles of that theatre: Tarawa, Kwajalein, Saipan, Iwo Jima, Peleliu and more. The game also features new weapons, including Flamethrowers, and Japanese having the ability to set grenade booby traps. It also brings the drama and excitement of the infamous Japanese 'Banzai' charges to the Red Orchestra experience. The Iwo Jima teaser is available in 8 different languages: PL, CZ, DE, ES, IT, RU, FR and EN and can be downloaded from http://www.1cfiles.com/RO2_Rising_Storm/Jan2012/ Rising Storm release is scheduled for 2012.
