Red Orchestra Heroes of Stalingrad Rising Storm announced

Developer Tripwire Interactive started out as a mod team and now the company says it plans to give mod makers a chance at developing a commercial title. This week the developer announced plans for Red Orchestra Heroes of Stalingrad: Rising Storm, an expansion to their still unreleased WWII shooter. The expansion will move away from the European theater of the war to the Pacific region with the US fighting Japanese forces. The game will let players play as both US and Japanese soldiers and there is the promise of co-op in the campaign as well as multiplayer modes.

What's interesting about this announcement is that Tripwire plans to work with "the best developers from the Red Orchestra modding community and the mod community at large" on this project. Tripwire will give the mod team early access to its development tools and will work with the team to create Rising Storm. The game's official web site is now looking to fill spots on the team and while they are not full time salaried positions the site states, "financial compensation is involved." The final product will be released as an expansion to Red Orchestra: Heroes of Staingrad sometime after that game is released.
