Red Veil continues the story that began in The Stalin Subway. It is March 1953 and Joseph Stalin is dead. His former right-hand man, Lavrentiy Beria, is vying for power and orders the assassination of Gleb Suvorov (the hero from the first game) and his wife Elena. Gleb is captured but Elena escapes.
The player takes the role of Elena in this first-person-shooter, set across eight levels and including authentic architecture and weapons of the time. The game becomes a race to save your husband and get out of Moscow.
The German version has English audio (cutscenes are subtitled). A fan-created patch translates the rest of the game into English (briefings, menus, etc).
In the German version, all blood and a few in-game events (finding a corpse in the first level, finding a defenceless soldier on the floor respectively on the toilet) were removed. A detailed list of changes can be found on Schnittberichte.com (German).
