'Rising Storm 2: Vietnam' Rolls Out Green Army Men Beach Party, Free to Play Week - Trailer

by Rainier on July 9, 2019 @ 4:27 p.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 offers intense action for up to 64 players in battles between the forces of South Vietnam (the US and their Allies) and those of the North - the regular, main-force units of North Vietnamese Army, plus the guerilla fighters of the National Liberation Front (or Viet Cong).

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


Tripwire Interactive, Antimatter Games, and the Green Army Men Team released Rising Storm 2: Vietnam – Green Army Men Beach Party , the latest DLC for the first-person shooter. Available now on Steam, players can look forward to taking part in the gritty and strategic 64-player matches Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is famous for with a twist in this brand-new DLC, filled with all the army-green plastic this summer can handle.

To celebrate the release of the new update Tripwire is kicking off a Free Week and sale on Steam (until 10AM PDT on Tuesday July 16th), so don’t miss this opportunity to play for free and pick up the game at a low price!

After the success of the Christmas Green Army Men seasonal event, Tripwire Interactive, Antimatter Games, and the Green Army Men Mod team agreed to make the Green Army Men mod easily available to all Rising Storm 2: Vietnam players. The result is Rising Storm 2: Vietnam – Green Army Men Beach Party, a DLC add-on, completely complied and easily activated from within the main game.

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam players will beat the heat in this figurine beach bash with vehicles, supporting artillery, mortars, and rockets all turned into toys. The Green Army Men Beach Party DLC also removes fall damage, in order to create a more realistic experience, and includes multiple classes with over 12 weapons. Players can keep it cool on four maps: Beach Party, Backyard, Pool Party, and the returning Green Army Men Christmas map! Fight through sandcastles, building blocks, baseball bats, barbeques and more, all while avoiding getting melted by the enemy team.

All Rising Storm 2: Vietnam players can play Green Army Men Beach Party for free as the Rifleman class. If players want to unlock more classes and support the development team, there is the option to buy the Green Army Men Upgrade, which unlocks all the other classes for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam – Green Army Men Beach Party.

As a way to support the modding community and grassroots game development that helped Tripwire Interactive’s founding members get their start in the industry, all revenue from the Green Army Men Upgrade purchases is shared with the Green Army Men mod team to support their valuable efforts and accomplishment, building high-quality content in their spare time.


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.
