Rising Storm is a total conversion modification for the eagerly awaited WWII First-person Shooter, Heroes of Stalingrad: Red Orchestra; based on the Pacific campaign of 1941-45. It is unique in that it is a mod in which there is financial compensation for the development team from the backing studio.
Rising Storm covers the famous island-hopping campaigns in the Pacific from 1942 to 1945 as the US Army and Marine Corps fight it out with the Imperial Japanese army and Special Naval Landing Forces. Featuring some of the most brutal fighting in the Pacific theater, players are able to experience beach assaults, jungle fighting, close quarters cave fighting and more across Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima and many other historic locations. The player is able to take the part of either side – American or Japanese –playing through the Campaign Mode alone or with friends, or battling it out online in full player versus player multi-player.
Rising Storm is being created in a first-of-its-kind collaboration between a mod team and a professional game development studio. The Rising Storm team is made up of the best developers from the Red Orchestra modding community and the mod community at large.
