Electronic Arts announced that Battlefield Vietnam has today begun to ship to retail outlets. Battlefield Vietnam, like its brethren Battlefield games, allows players to join forces on teams in games with up to 64 players over the Internet. With the release of Battlefield Vietnam, the critically acclaimed Battlefield franchise, including Battlefield 1942, Battlefield 1942: Road to Rome and Battlefield 1942: Secret Weapons of WWII, has sold three million units worldwide.

The Battlefield franchise is entering a new era with more firepower and beautiful, yet ferocious, new combat settings. Offering an arsenal of weapons and vehicles authentic to the Vietnam conflict, players will battle in the first-person perspective. Staying true to the over-the-top, action-packed multiplayer style that gave Battlefield 1942 its critical and commercial success, Battlefield Vietnam will drop players into some of the Vietnam War's fiercest battles. Fighting in settings ranging from jungles surrounding the Ho Chi Minh Trail to the city streets of Hue, players will choose from well-equipped forces, the United States or the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and Vietcong. All of this action will be accompanied by the sounds of an authentic Vietnam era soundtrack to immerse the player into an experience similar to that of a Hollywood film.

Developed by Swedish based Digital Illusions' Canadian office, Battlefield Vietnam for the PC is rated "T" (Teen) by the ESRB and has an MSRP of $39.99. More information can be found on the Battlefield Vietnam web site.
