Today Global Star Software, a subsidiary of Take-Two interactive has announced plans to release Vietnam MEDEVAC. This title is the latest installment in their critically acclaimed Search and Rescue series, and will be released in conjunction with another SAR title, Coastal Heroes. Vietnam MEDEVAC represents a new direction in the SAR series, taking the most popular and realistic helicopter rescue simulation series of all time into the stifling hot jungles of war-torn Vietnam at the height of the infamous ideological conflict. But even though the time and place have changed, the ongoing SAR mission remains the same, to save American lives.

In Vietnam MEDEVAC, Pilots take to the sultry skies of Vietnam in the infamous UH1 “Huey” helicopter, the multipurpose workhouse aircraft of the Vietnam conflict. Players embark on a military career of flying all manner of chopper missions, from insertions and extractions, to daring hoist rescues, often behind enemy lines, and often under fire from AK47s, Heavy AA guns, SAM missiles and more. Vietnam MEDEVAC features an all-new, Renderware™ powered 3D environment, packed with realistic weather effects, dynamic lighting, and a particle system used for smoke, fire and downwash effects. What’s more, Vietnam MEDEVAC is packed with aestheticism, from the wiper blades on the Huey, to the door mounted M60 Machine gun, which can be controlled manually during heavy firefights, or automatically.

Vietnam MEDEVAC is under development at InterActive Vision, and Global Star is planning to have it in stores worldwide later this fall. It has not yet been rated by the ESRB.
