“After a long wait of almost two years,” writes modder NergiZed, “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.”
In amongst the new content, which includes completed versions of the two new factions, the Russian Federation and the European Union, is a whole new multiplayer setup. SWR.net is a hosting platform created by the team, allowing players to connect and play ROTR online. Yep, they built a whole new multiplayer framework. Pretty impressive, isn't it?
