Tripwire Interactive has announced Rising Storm 2: Vietnam at E3.
The setting of Rising Storm 2 will take place during the Vietnam War. In a new trailer for the game, we can see American soldiers fighting with Vietnamese soldiers on a large field. When the ground forces are attacked, helicopters come swooping in to attack the aggressive Vietnamese soldiers.
The original Rising Storm was released back in May 2013 as a standalone expansion pack to Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad, which Tripwire Interactive worked in conjunction with the modding community to create. Rising Storm focused on the Pacific campaign of World War 2, and it appears while the location has largely stayed the same, the timeline has changed now that we’re playing during the Vietnam War.
"We're bringing our gritty and realistic military shooter gameplay forward to a time when assault rifles ruled the ground, choppers ruled the skies, and every tunnel could hide an ambush," said Tripwire Interactive President, John Gibson, "The iconic setting of Vietnam opens up so many opportunities for exciting asymmetrical gameplay."
