Rising Storm 2: Vietnam Gameplay

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is a hardcore multiplayer shooter with a first-person view in a setting of the Vietnam War, featuring a large-scale battle for 64 people, significant realistic locations, and a lot of authentic weapons.

Battle system in RS2: Vietnam is highly realistic and authentic: commanders coordinate the actions of platoons, soldiers storm the bastions, and artillery destroys the enemy's infantry to push them out of the positions, which serves as strong support for the offensive. The developers succeeded to recreate the feeling of combat and the horrors of war.

An essential feature of the Rising Storm is the skill-based firing system and survival mechanics, which influence the accuracy of shooting. After jogging the hands of your hero will tremble, which will make aiming problematic. Stability of the sight depends on the position of the body, and the most accurate shots require concentration. It's impossible to run across the map firing from all weapons: players have to move from cover to cover, always squatting and crawling to hide from the enemy.

The gameplay authenticity is also one of the notable features of this project. For example, characters will die already after 1-2 bullets, and injuries cut the ability to fight: the hero won't be able to run with an injured leg, and the damaged arm will not allow aiming accurately. The cover not only protects against unwanted glances and shots but also serves as support.

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is a strictly multiplayer shooter with highly hardcore gameplay. The rules of the game are simple: there are 32 participants on each side of the conflict and three game modes:

  • Territories — control of the territory by capturing specific points.
  • Supremacy — the sequential capture of points.
  • Skirmish — deathmatch for 24 participants.

Smooth teamwork plays an important role. You need to orientate yourself towards your partners, monitor the overall situation on the line of contact, cover with fire and support in attacks, it is useful to periodically check the map on which allied forces are marked. It is also helpful to indicate the direction where you have seen the opponent. These markings help the entire squad to navigate on the battlefield and act more effectively.

The set of weapons in Rising Storm 2: Vietnam depends on the class of the fighter and the team. You can play for both the Vietnamese army and the invaders. Most of the characters are armed with M14 or AK, plus grenades as an additional weapon. Other classes are represented by a limited number of machine gunners, snipers, grenade launchers, scouts and radio operators; the availability of a powerful weapon is combined with a carbine or pistol as an additional weapon. U.S. Army combatants are equipped with an M79 hand grenade launcher, which is effective against infantry, and Vietnamese combatants of the same class are provided with the rocket launcher, which allows him to shoot down helicopters. Vietnamese soldiers can set the traps; some American fighters have anti-personnel mines in their arsenal.
