Darkest Hour update free for Red Orchestra

June 17, 2010: The Darkest Hour team and Tripwire Interactive are happy to bring you the latest installment for their mod for Red Orchestra. The latest release of Darkest Hour: Europe 44-45 brings new features, 2 new vehicles and 6 new maps, to update the most popular Red Orchestra mod.

The most exciting new feature is one that the Red Orchestra fans have been asking for, for quite a while: mantling. The Darkest Hour team is proud to bring you a full implementation of mantling, working in all the DH maps. For all those RO fans who have yet to try Darkest Hour– this could be the time!

The new vehicles are the American M36 Jackson "Slugger" and the German Panzer III Ausf. N. For these to roam around on, there are also 6 new maps from Normandy and the Battle of the Bulge:

    <*>Dog Green Beech on D-Day (a condensed re-release of the old Beta map) <*>Freyneux and LaMormenil <*>Hurtgenwald (back by popular demand) <*>La Chapelle <*>La Monderie <*>Noville

On top of that, there is a HUGE change-list, with pages of other new and updated features and bug-fixes. As always, this Darkest Hour update is completely free to anyone who owns a copy of Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45. DH will auto-update via Steam if you already have it installed– or you can install it for free from Steam– http://store.steampowered.com/app/1280. For the full details of all the additions, updates, changes and bug-fixes, head for the Darkest Hour forums on the website: http://www.darkesthourgame.com. It has been a long time coming– but it has been well worth the wait!
