'Rising Storm 2: Vietnam' Gets Release Date, Kicks Off Open Beta Weekend

by Rainier on May 19, 2017 @ 11:53 a.m. PDT

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam moves the FPS series to the Vietnam War, where American and Vietnamese forces square off in a whole new generation of warfare.

For the first time, the authentic gunplay and visceral first-person action of the Red Orchestra series is coming to an era of automatic rifles, man-portable grenade launchers and more modern weapons systems. Rising Storm 2: Vietnam casts players into a brutal, authentic recreation of the Vietnam War.

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam looks to once again raise the bar and move the series into a new era of combat.

Tripwire Interactive announced that the official release date for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is set 12:00PM Pacific Time on Tuesday 30 May.

Fans who pre-ordered should be able to pre-load before that. The game will also be available to buy via Steam, at a 10% discount for the day, with the Standard Edition available for $24.99 and the Digital Deluxe Edition priced at $29.99 normally.

To celebrate the impending release of Rising Storm 2: Vietnam, publisher Tripwire Interactive and developer Antimatter Games are kicking off an Open Beta that begins today and runs until 4:00PM ET on Monday, May 22. This will act just like a Free Weekend - head for the Steam Store page, download and play!

PC owners who pre-order or buy the Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Digital Deluxe Edition will receive four bonus Rising Storm 2: Vietnam themed weapons skins to use in Killing Floor 2 for the PC. Those weapon skins include the RPG-7 rocket launcher, the M16 with M203 grenade launcher attachment, the M1911 automatic pistol and the classic Lever Action Rifle.  Note – the weapon skins will be available as part of Killing Floor 2’s next major update which will be announced at a later date.

Tripwire and Antimatter Games have also created and released a series of tutorial videos for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam that offer up some great insights into the various aspects of gameplay.

Key Features:

  • Large-Scale 64 Player Gameplay – Rising Storm 2: Vietnam offers intense tactical action for up to 64 players in battles between the US forces and the Vietnamese, with each
  • force having their own unique abilities and tactical advantages such as Napalm Strikes, Artillery Barrages, surface-to-air missile strikes, traps, ambushes and more. 
  • Flyable Helicopters - Players on the US team will be able to pilot 3 different helicopters - the UH-1H "Huey" transport, the OH-6 "Loach" light recon and the powerful AH-1G "Cobra" attack helicopter.
  • Conventional vs. Guerilla Forces – Play as both the United States Military and Vietnamese resistance fighters. Rising Storm 2: Vietnam allows players to control either the U.S. Army and Marines Corps or the militarized and guerrilla forces of North Vietnam - the NVA and the Viet Cong.
  • New Game Types– Game types include Red Orchestra's classic territory control mode and new smaller modes and maps designed for 16 or less players. These new smaller maps are designed to be a more competitive, squad based experience that reflect the 'low-level' conflicts that Vietnam is famous for.
  • Realistic, Large, Open Levels Each map faithfully recreates the conflict of the Vietnam experience and aims to pull players directly into the war with its extreme authenticity to real life. Maps will include the famous jungles of Vietnam, but will also cover battles that occurred in cities, on rolling hills, in US Firebases, Rice Fields, Plantations and many more authentic locations. In keeping with the Vietnam setting, they will provide plenty of opportunity for jungle ambushes and flanking attacks. 
  • Vietnam- Era Authentic Weapons A variety of authentic period weapons available including the M16, M14, M60, M79 and M3 Grease Gun for the Americans; and the Type 56 Assault Rifle (a Chinese copy of the famous AK-47), RPG-7, MAT-49, SKS Carbine and many, many more for the Vietcong. Weapons also have a wide range of functionality with in-game implications, including adjustable stocks, attachable bayonets, and a new and advanced recoil system which builds on the already phenomenal weapon handling that the Red Orchestra series is famous for.
  • Squads and Command –Drastically enhanced squad and communication tools to help you group up and work with your friends and team-mates.
  • No Class Ranks / Weapon Upgrades / Unlocks – Rising Storm 2: Vietnam's focus will be player skill and balance. We won't be locking content like weapon upgrades, improved player characteristics or new armaments behind a rank or experience system. We want to put the tools to succeed in the hands of every player.
  • Character Customization - Rising Storm 2: Vietnam will allow players to customize their player characters with additional uniform and equipment variants earned as they play. These will include new headgear, clothing, tattoos, glasses and more.
