Details: http://steamcommunit...639133892980334

 

Yes, Free! By navigating to http://store.steampo....com/app/35450/ and downloading the game tomorrow after the promotion starts and before it ends (the promotion will last 24 hours), the game will be free to keep forever! 

Following this, we will be rolling into a free weekend for Rising Storm (free for a limited time) as well as a discount! If you've been trying to convince a friend to play Red Orchestra 2 with you, there will be no better time than tomorrow!

Edit: I was wrong!

 

As was noted on SD, this kind of crippleware. You're locked to "Rifle-Only" class unless you buy the full game.

CONTAINS ONLY LIMITED RISING STORM CONTENT`

Please note: if you buy Red Orchestra 2 from this store page, you will get RIFLE-ONLY access to Rising Storm, NOT the whole game. If you head for the Rising Storm store page (http://store.steampo...com/app/234510/), you can buy Rising Storm, including ALL of the Red Orchestra 2 Multiplayer content.


That said, I did at least mark it as bought for myself on Steam. :)

Rising Storm is not the "full game" but it does include Red Orchestra 2 if you buy it. Red Orchestra 2 alone is a full game and was out for some time before Rising Storm's release.  Basically you get limited access to the newer content that is not free today.

You're totally right. You get the full Red Orchestra 2 single player free along w/ the liimited Rising Storm content. Ignore me! :D

 

"Bought" on my account! :D

Rising Storm will have a free weekend if you want to play that, as the devs noted in the original announcement, along with a discount

You should also have full access to the multiplayer content that isn't from Rising Storm (Germans vs Russians).

Im on a LInux box at work, so I can't actually install. It has appeared in my library though. Is that going to be a problem? Did anyone not actually install during the L4D2 deal?

I can't seem to "buy" it from my phone and I don't have a pc right now. All I see is a button that says install, and that brings me to an error page. Anybody know if I can get this to work?

I had an error page after logging in, but then went back a page, clicked install again and then was told that it was added to my library. Will have to download later on my other PC, since I am on my macbook pro. Thanks OP.

I'm assuming you don't need the Steam client installed to "purchase" this game. Will try it and report back.

Yep. Clicking "Install Game" on their website didn't actually install the game, just displayed that it is now registered to my account. Hope I'm good to go for after a PC upgrade when I can actually install and run the game. Thanks OP.
