This applies to me. Awesome! I wasn't intending to pre-order, but I guess I have to now.

I love the tie-ins with Killing Floor and Team Fortress. That's a cool addition.

Reminds me that I haven't played TF in forever. Need to fire it up again. Maybe tonight...

Haha, I just did for the first time in ages. Having a stahlhelm is cool, even if it's only for the soldier

Great to see they remembered their existing community too. I went for the support TW route and grabbed the Deluxe Edition. Even so, it's far too cheap for a new game

Talking

I preordered too. Standard edition.

I guess the first day I will have to fight dozens of players with Elite weapons ?

i will be THE Elite by rifle-stabbing people equiped with STG42 or SVt40 with bayo and 71 rounds mag.

Bad news: RO:HoS is delayed by two weeks:

RO2 Release Date delayed 2 weeks to 13 Sep 2011

Quote:
We have to announce that the release date for Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad is shifting back two weeks to September 13, 2011. While we understand the fans are clamoring to get their hands on the game, we felt we needed the extra two weeks to get it right and add the extra polish the game (and the players) deserve.
On the bright side, this means it won't conflict with Deus Ex: HR.

Which means it's likely an extra week or two for thoughs who got the Digital edition when they preordered, to have fun with the beta...


Though two weeks is hardly a big deal...
