  • Rising Storm 2: Vietnam "Army of the Republic of Vietnam" Content Update Released

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]25402[/ATTACH]
    Tripwire Interactive and Antimatter Games have released the "Army of the Republic of Vietnam" content update for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam today. This update brings a bunch of new content to the game including weapons and some new maps. All of this is free to existing owners of the game.
    Over one million Vietnamese served in the ARVN over the course of the Vietnam War, with over 250,000 lost in action. Largely equipped with older US military equipment and trained by foreign military advisors, ARVN soldiers bore the brunt of frontline fighting throughout the war both prior to the escalation of US military involvement and after the US began reducing its troop presence.

    With the release of the ARVN update on May 29, 2018 for RISING STORM 2: VIETNAM players can play as soldiers in the ARVN faction for the first time, as well as enjoy new weapons and five brand-new maps.

    Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) Weapons:
    • M1 Garand
    • M1D Garand Sniper Rifle
    • Thompson M1A1 SMG
    • M1918A2 Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR)
    • M1919A6 .30-cal Browning LMG
    • Douglas A-1 Skyraider ground-attack aircraft as support

    New Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) Maps:
    • Quang Tri: Set during 1972, Quang Tri is a daytime supremacy map set in the citadel of the provincial capital, pitting the new ARVN forces with limited US helicopter support against NVA main-force units.
    • A Sau: Set on an airfield and fortified camp in the A Sau valley, this nighttime territory attack map finds ARVN forces defending against attacking NVA main-force units. Visibility is limited under the cover of darkness with occasional flares lighting up the battlefield.

    New Community Maps:
    Made by fans for fans, the following player-made maps from Tripwire Interactive’s recent RISING STORM 2: VIETNAM $40,000 Modding Contest will also be officially introduced to the game with the release of the ARVN update.

    • Firebase Georgina: Daytime attack by main-force NVA on a series of positions held by the US Army.
    • Borderwatch: Australian forces attack territory held by the NLF (Viet Cong), pushing through jungles and across open fields to the VC’s final hidden base.
    • Resort: US Marines stage a heliborne assault from the sea on a resort area held by Viet Cong guerrillas.

    We know you love seeing rather than reading, which is why I have two trailers and some screenshots to share with you. The first video is a launch trailer for the Army of the Republic content and the second is a behind the scenes developer video.
