It's not entirely clear when the deal will go live, but I suspect it'll be at the start of the new Steam-day—around 10am PDT, or 6pm BST.

Note: You don't get the Pacific theater expansion Rising Storm for free.

Red Orchestra 2 and Rising Storm are great games. RO2 was the Game of the Year 2013 from PC Gamer magazine.

One of the best shooters ever made. The expansion is supposed to go on sale this weekend.

Finally got my copy. Took me forever to guess my username and password. That tells you how long done I have used steam.

It's launch was rough I will give you that. Have you played it recently? It's amazing. I suppose you could stick to the shitty console games like bf and cod.

I would really like to see a WWII game built on the Arma 3 engine.

There is one under development. Check out Invasion 1944. It was originally a mod for ARMA2

I snagged it. I think I played the original way back. If I remember right it was an old school Rainbow 6 type of deal: very lethal, no respawns, sprinting has an endurance limit, guns had bullet drop, etc.

Hoping this one is like that. Been awhile since I've played that kind of shooter. Getting a bit burned out on the twitch-based current FPSs.....

RO1 was better. But RO2 and Rising Storm are decent now. It does bring some innovations to the table in terms of weapon/movement mechanics.

Wow. It's kind of hard! AI doesn't seem real bright though. My guys run around like chickens with freshly removed heads. Enemy, once I spot them, seem to just stand there till I finally hit them.

Oh, and the Allied campaign is locked? I assume you have to play through the German one first to unlock it? Seems a bit odd to play as the 'bad guys' first.
