Tripwire Interactive and Antimatter Games have released a new update for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam.
A new update available for Rising Storm 2: Vietnam has added a 64-player campaign mode, which allows players to choose between Northern or Southern forces.
Following a beta and out now on Steam, players will “fight for control” of key territories from 1965 through 1975. Forces and weapon availability will vary depending upon the year.
Here’s a breakdown of the multiplayer campaign features:
• Full 64-Player Campaign Mode
• Choose your side: Take control of Northern or Southern forces, battling for control region by region
• Fight from 1965 through 1975 with different forces and weaponry available to each side as time progresses
• Select regions to compete for, the army to use, and the map to fight over
• Northern forces can make strategic use of the Ho Chi Minh Trail option to bring stronger People’s Army of Vietnam (PAVN) forces to bear
• Southern forces can respond with carefully timed use of the Search and Destroy option
• Added Variety: Fight over classic maps with new armies, different Commander abilities and weapons, and different attackers and variety
• Help decide the fate of the Vietnam war
The modding community is also receiving support with a new, available player-made map. Titled Highway 14, the map was one of the winners from the Rising Storm 2: Vietnam $40,000 Modding Contest.
On this map, the US Army will fight “alongside a highway through difficult terrain.” They will try to clear objectives while NFL guerrilla forces “work to stop them at every opportunity.”
Along with the new mode and map, a large patch was released. The notes are rather extensive, so you may wish to grab a cup before diving in.
