The beta for PC tactical FPS sequel Red Orchestra 2 has launched - but it's only accessible to those who pre-purchased the Deluxe Edition.

The first phase of the beta includes three levels from the game running the three gametypes: Firefight, Countdown, and Territory.

Tripwire Interactive is using the beta as its final balancing test for the game, and wants your feedback. You can download the beta from Steam.

Meanwhile, Tripwire has announced it will allow server administrators to host ranked servers for the game.

"We feel the 'walled garden' approach many developers take to server hosting makes it difficult for the clan/gaming communities as well as stifling mod and custom mapping development - two things that are very important to the success and longevity of any multiplayer game," the company said.

"We have also put together a list of Recommended Server Hosting Partners that we've been working closely with to ensure they provide a good experience for our fans and game server admins as well as meeting the hardware requirements of the game.

In the UK these are Gamingdeluxe, KillerCreation and Multiplay.
