Tripwire Interactive LLC was formed by the team that created Red Orchestra, the award-winning mod for Unreal Tournament 2004®, in February 2005. Although the founders and staff of Tripwire have many individual game credits, including America’s Army, to their names, Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 is Tripwire’s first independent title. Red Orchestra won many awards as a mod, including Phases II, III and IV and the Grand Finals of Nvidia’s “$1,000,000 Make Something Unreal” contest. Tripwire released the full, standalone retail version - Red Orchestra: Ostfront 41-45 – over Steam in March 2006, shortly followed by distribution in stores worldwide.
