It hasn’t been more than two weeks since Dungeons 2 was given away for free with the spring sale of the Humble Bundle store, and there’s another game up for grabs again: Tripwire Interactive‘s FPS Rising Storm: Game of the Year Edition.
Think what you will of morally questionable World War II shooters, but like anti-war movies, they have a place in today’s gaming market if done right. I’ve never played the Red Orchestra series, tactical shooters that are more realistic and difficult than your standard FPS, but I only heard/read good things about them, so it’s great to finally be able to try one out. Rising Storm features battles of the Pacific Theatre in the time frame between 1942 and 1945. Being able to play Americans and Japanese in online multiplayer is again morally ambiguous, but being the GOTY, it’s at least the complete package. The game still looks quite good and sounds even more terrifying with realistic shooting sounds and orchestral set-pieces, so it should be a no-brainer for fans of the genre.
The game is now available for free, but only until tomorrow, so be quick to get your copy. Also play close attention to the Spring Sale Encore which has more titles back on sale until May 29th, 10 AM Pacific Time.
