After a long wait of almost two years, we are proud to present you the release of Rise of the Reds Version 1.85. In the name of the SWR team, I want to express my gratitude to all of you who stuck with us for all this time. Now, the grand moment has arrived as we lift the curtain on our new release. For the last two years, we have been working hard to present to you a variety of new features, including many new units and abilities for all factions, a complete visual overhaul of Russia and the GLA, the much anticipated GLA Recycler mechanic, countless tweaks to the AI and the inner workings of the game - but most notable of all, the inclusion of our own integrated multiplayer platform. SWR.net is ready to host your games, connecting you with ROTR players around the world. Without further ado, we present you the download link as well as a little appetiser below.

Key features of our new release are:

-Drastically reduced lag in AI matches
-Integrated SWR.net multiplayer service
-New map pack integrated in the main installation
-Vastly remodelled Russian and GLA faction
-Several new units and abilities for all factions
-Support for the Ultimate Collection version on Origin.
-All official maps revised to be more balanced.
-Unique voice overs for many old and new units.




Also our streaming host Hecthor Doomhammer will be celebrating the release tonight with a special release stream!


And for your convience a countdown untill the start of the event: http://goo.gl/pfL4pC

Join us tonight and for a change you will be able to actively participate during the stream using our public beta.
Look out for games being hosted by Doomhammer himself if you want to have some screen time during the stream.





Also while you wait for the download to finish you can read the changelog here.
See you all on the battlefield!

I can't tell you how much I thank you Guys for this masterpiece! It feels wrong to play a game that is so good and totally free. The Finest detail was placed into unit design! seeing that you poured your heart out into this compared to the games you buy at retail stores and get ripped off. Where can I donate to the SWR Team?

So looks like I'll have to buy a third copy of ZH (The reason why I bought a second copy was because of the "Old file does not exist" fortunately I can get them for just under 5 from Amazon, unfortunately, I don't have a credit card, or a job, although I plan on getting one when I finish my course at college, so in the meantime I'll have to wait until I can get Extra pocket money to get an amazon gift card)

I was just about to hit the books when I thought to myself: "Hey, let's check what's up with ROTR?"

Congrats guys! Thanks a lot!

Nope go into Multiplayer > Network and you are ready to roll! Be sure to enable SWR.Net on the launcher before you do so!

I downloaded it but i can't play today sad.gif the hype is killing me, specially with swr.net picture, hnnnnnnnnng, i need to wait for like another 8 hours

I love the release, so far my only complaint is that the AI, at least for the GLA, no longer waits for the player to build a superweapon first before building it's own. I actually liked that about the old AI meant I could take my time on things and not worry about half my base being wiped out in a single strike. I don't like being rushed.

Also my GLA AI only seems to be building rebels and combat cycles.

I tried that just now, and for whatever reason it doesn't show anyone else in the menu. I clicked the thing to enable SWR.net and everything.

Very awesome, much appreciated <3

Surprised it was 740 MB's though, thought it was going to be 800ish, if that was just an estimate then please ignore this sentence.

Also the Change List is LEGEND (wait for it) ARY !

oh boy, isn't it a bit early to assume there is a problem with it? I have a 64 bit OS too...

make sure it has admin rights, that got me a few times too. If you are still having issues then I suggest making a detailed thread in bug report.

Vanguard sentry gun was scrapped. Check the streams where Vanguard+Humvee+Starlifter / Vanguard+Osprey tactics raped bases, you'll see why.
