The first person shooter game Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is now available on Steam. The game is said to be a hardcore tactical first person shooter game set in the "brutal killing fields of the Vietnam War".


The game aims to be an authentic recreation of the Vietnam War, allowing players to join the fight on both sides of the war: the powerful United States Military or the fearless Vietnamese resistance fighters.

The new game is the direct sequel to the original shooter game Rising Storm that released in 2013. The original game was a standalone expansion pack for the popular shooter game Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad.

The first Rising Storm game was critically acclaimed for doing things differently to redefine the first person shooter genre in a time when the market was being dominated by annual releases of Call of Duty games.

The major selling point of the sequel is the game's setting. Set in Vietnam, players get to experience fierce combat in lush Vietnamese jungles, cities and the country side, and maps are based on iconic locations such as Cu Chi, Hue City, Song Be, An Lao Valley and Hill 937.

We published our review of the game last Sunday and gave the game a 7 out of 10 score, noting that, while the game is a worthy successor to the original Rising Storm, too that many gameplay elements feel identical to the original title.
