Vietcong 2 is a FPS set against the background of the 1968 Tet Offensive, in and around the ancient city of Hue (pronounced Who-ay), during the Vietnam War. Brought to life through a gritty story compiled from first hand accounts and memories of Special Forces and Infantry servicemen stationed in Hue during the assault.

The second installment in the popular Vietcong series, Vietcong 2 is a first-person shooter featuring competitive multiplayer for up to 64 players and co-op play for up to eight players. In the game, players battle across the ancient city of Hue, engaging in gritty, urban combat while utilizing more than 50 authentic weapons.

"Vietcong 2 is an excellent addition to the Vietcong franchise," said Christoph Hartmann, Managing Director of 2K Games. "The new multiplayer features, dual campaigns and urban environments will please both fans of the series and newcomers alike."

Set against the backdrop of the 1968 Tet Offensive, Vietcong 2 takes place in and around an ancient city during the Vietnam War.
